Lovely old church. We were walking around the green and noticed that we were in front of the church just as services were starting so we decided to attend. The people were so friendly and invited us to have coffee and treats after services.

The priest helped to make our wedding wonderful and the organist played the pipe organ well and it sounded wonderful. The church is beautiful and a very interesting historic site.

My friend's son was killed in a horrific car accident and his funeral and burial took place here. I had never been in the church and it was very old and beautiful!

It's a very pretty church that's over 300 years old, and it's in a quiet, serene setting. This is definitely a good place to go and reflect. I wish I'd had time to take a tour!

This church welcomes everyone and is therefore quite diversified in membership. They have many activities and outreach programs and all are welcome to participate. The Sunday services are great, very similar to Roman Catholic worship.The church does not put pressure on you to join or hound you for donations. Give it a try, the membership is very friendly.

This church is over 300 years old. It is fun to check out the state's people who are buried here.

I am sorry to read about the other person's bad experience and am not so sure what happened there. We attend Christ Church often, I know for a fact that many persons go out of their way to make visitors and newcomers welcome. One thing I know is that during the H1-N1 Flu scare they had asked people not to... More

Being new to the area and a lifelong Episcopalian I went to this church to worship and seek fellowship with like-minded Christians. This was the most unfriendly group I have ever encountered. During the Peace, no one shook my hand or acknowledged my presence. Before and after the service was the same. I've been to many churches while traveling and... More

We happened by there on a Sunday morning just before the service started. The ringing of the big bell in the tower got our attention. We were just barely passable in casual clothes but the folks outside beckoned us to join them. What a warm and friendly congregation! The pastor is a female, very dynamic preacher. The music was uplifting... More

The stained glass windows are cool, and being built in 1703 it's amazing that it's still the same way it was. I beleive it's the original bell too! The graveyard is very neat to look at the many different varieties of people that have had Christ Church as their home Church. Ceaser Rodney's monument is big, graves from the 1700's,... More
