The Christ Church tradition welcomes all people, from all walks of life, wherever they are on their journey of faith.

You Are Welcome as You Are

Each week, we mean it when we say, “Whoever you are, and wherever you find yourself on the journey of faith, you belong at Christ Church as you are, to receive the riches of God's blessings, so freely given.”

At 325 years old, Christ Church still needs pilgrims and seekers to help us discern our way. We invite you to visit our inclusive community so that together, we can listen for God’s voice. Standing steadfast in service to Philadelphia, proud of our traditions of worship from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, we seek the interpretations of Holy Scripture that will expand our trust in the magnitude of God's grace.

Special upcoming offerings are below. And as always, see our regular listings for Shelter Meals, Sandwiches for the Homeless, Activism/Spirituality Group, the Sages, and Parents.

Journeys for Newcomers and Longtimers

Want to join Christ Church?  Or have you been here awhile and would enjoy a tune-up and a check-in?  This next Journeys class will take the exciting step of combining newcomers and longer-time members in talk about faith and life pathways, vocation and call, Anglicanism and the Episcopal history, and our next steps now. Meeting over the course of three Sundays, members, newcomers, and clergy will journey together. Childcare and lunch provided; RSVP is needed. Questions? Check with the Rev. Susan Richardson
