About Christ Church
Christ Church is a family-focused Episcopal church located in Medway, MA, about 25 miles west of Boston. Our members come from diverse faiths and backgrounds and we welcome that diversity.

Christ Church is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. Our parish is rich in the heritage and tradition of the Episcopal Church and also reflects today's world. We respect individual thought and reason as we meditate together upon Christian Scripture and seek to live lives full of worship and joy.


As a Christ-centered community, Christ Church exists to celebrate God's presence; to unite all people in the spirit of hospitality, friendship and love; and to serve God in our community and throughout the world in all that we do.

Christ Church is called to be an embracing, nourishing and life-giving family in Christ.  We are called to care for each other, for our community, and for the world.
The History of Christ Church
Christ Church began in 1865 as St. Clement's Church when several area communities worked together to build an Episcopal church. The church prospered until Sunday, February 5, 1871 when, on the coldest day of the year, an overheated furnace caused the church to burn down in a matter of minutes.

The beautiful historic stone structure was built over the next decade by a particularly talented local stone mason 
and veteran of the Union Army named Elmer Videtto. The parish was renamed Christ Church. The first service was held on Christmas Eve, 1881. The Parish House adjoining the church, named after Mary Croswell, was built from the same local stones and completed on April 25, 1899. The hall provides a large meeting space, a kitchen, a stage, offices and classrooms.

Throughout the years, the structures have undergone renovations (mostly recently new heating and cooling in 2017 and a remodeled kitchen in 2018). The church population has alternatively grown and declined but has always shown the same faith and resilience it showed when it rebuilt itself after the fire.

We experienced tremendous growth in the 1990's and our first female priest, the Rev. Margaret Quill, also came to be our first full-time priest. Today we boast an energetic, tight-knit community of members–spanning the generations–who are dedicated to growing the church's presence in our community and welcoming more people to join us in worship and service.
