Worship at Christ Church

Sunday Worship at Christ Church is Eucharist-centered, principally a celebration of the Holy Eucharist Rite II . The 9:00 AM Sunday morning liturgy includes a variety of sacred, classical and contemporary music.  We strive to include both ancient and modern traditions in our worship, mixing the old and new to achieve our expression of faith in and worship of God.  All ages are encouraged to take part by being an usher, or a reader, or lead prayers, or ring the Sanctus bell.

We are a family-centered parish and celebrate the presence of all who come to participate in our service -- from the youngest, most energetic, enthusiastic and curious child to the faithful elders in our midst -- and everyone in between.    All are welcome to participate in the liturgy in worship and you will notice "tags" by the front door for the various jobs available during the service.

Everyone is encouraged to take a tag at the beginning of the service, so that everyone who wishes to do so has a duty, such as oblation bearer, collection usher, bell-ringer, usher, reader, and so on. In this way, we teach and inspire all ages to participate as leaders and servers.

We strive for a sensory-friendly environment that is welcoming and respectful of all ages. Please let us know how we can make your worship experience more meaningful.

Outreach

Christ Church is closely connected to the surrounding community of Medway. We support the Medway House Family Shelter for families seeking temporary shelter with donations of items, as well as volunteers. 


The first Sunday of each month is Food Pantry Sunday. Parishioners take home our signature blue shopping bags and return them filled with items for the Medway Food Pantry. 

Another area of outreach is our community garden. Overseen by members of the parish, the garden offers a wide variety of fresh vegetables offered free to parishioners, neighbors and residents at the local family shelter.

Formation - Discipling

Christ Church made an intentional decision as a parish to focus on the spiritual life and support of children. Our children are 50% of the congregation in attendance on a Sunday, and an important part of all that we do.

Fellowship

In good Episcopal tradition, we get together following our Sunday worship with a coffee hour in the parish hall (out the side door of the Nave). This gives us the opportunity to catch up with one another and build our community.   We have a rich tradition of sharing food and fellowship in gatherings throughout the year.
