herefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
– Romans 15:7
The congregation of Christ Church has been a vital part of Greenwich since 1705 when worship began in the Horseneck Chapel. Anglican worship has thus taken place on this site from just 40 years after the 1665 incorporation of the township of Greenwich. While this first chapel was destroyed by the great hurricane of 1821, it was later rebuilt in 1834 on an expanded parcel of land, and it was from this point that campus expansion began to take place to accommodate the growing congregation. The addition of a parsonage and later a larger church followed in 1857. This growth led to the eventual erection of the 1910 building which serves as Christ Church Greenwich today.
