“Worth a look”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We stopped by here and were impressed with the stark simplicity of the church yard and the sanctuary. The staff were very welcoming and overall sense of the place is one of a place that has been held as sacred for hundreds of years. Have a look

“Great piece of History... but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Beautiful church... Tour guide (now called a docent???) was quite nice, but was weaving a lot of Democrat policy into the briefing.

“George Washington Worshipped Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Historic church with old cemetery on property. Visitors are seated in George Washington's box. FDR and Winston Churchill also attended here. Female minister was very good speaker and the service was very uplifting. 8 AM was not very crowded, not sure about later. Coffee served after service in church hall. Very welcoming place.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We were here a few days before Easter and found Christ Church to be a beautiful old church with a number of interesting features. George Washington worshiped there, and you can sit in his box pew. There is a beautiful high pulpit. The wonderful guide who was on duty let us go up in it and take a picture. It was fun. The large windows bathe the sanctuary in a sunny glow. Well worth a look.
