Welcome to Christ Church Greenwich! Established in 1749, we are one of New England’s oldest and largest Episcopal churches. We provide a spirit-filled historic sacred space for baptisms, weddings, events, and memorial services in Greenwich and the vicinity, and offer a myriad of opportunities to nourish and inspire you and your family on your spiritual journey.
The mission of Christ Church Greenwich is to seek and serve God in all persons, and to provide spiritual nourishment for all who journey to find a sacred home for worship, personal growth, service and community.
We are a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive community of over 870 households who call our church their spiritual home. We are highly visible in our community by our central location, beautiful historic campus, large traditional sanctuary, strong music program and, most importantly, our vibrant, dedicated clergy, staff, and involved parishioners. Our community is a wonderful source of comfort in times of pastoral need. We learn, worship, and celebrate together and we are deeply committed to embracing the needs of others in the community and around the world. We hope that you will join us.

Who may receive Holy Communion?
Any person baptized by water in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, in any Christian tradition, may receive Communion. At Christ Church, we receive in both kinds (bread and wine), so do not be afraid of the cup!
Are children welcome in church?
Children are most welcome. During the 9:00 am service, children’s chapel is held in the chapel (adjacent to the sanctuary).
