To Be God's Family means: welcoming our Sudanese Families
To Be God's Family means: Inviting young adults into new forms of worship
You are Welcome!
The Episcopal Church welcomes you–just as you are, a child of God. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here!
Christ Church is a caring and compassionate parish community in the Episcopal tradition. We are a wonderfully diverse blend of individuals and families in a variety of life situations from all cultures and ethnicities.
We invite you to worship with us. From September through May, we celebrate Holy Communion at 8 am and 10 am with a fellowship time and refreshments following each service. Sunday School for children ages 4-12 takes place during the first part of the church service, with the children joining the congregation for communion.
We have a special place for younger children, equipped with soft toys, coloring books and crayons, and a rocking chair toward the back of the church. We welcome God’s children of all ages!
During the summer months, Mass on the Grass is at 5 p.m. on Saturday evening, and our Sunday service of Holy Eucharist is at 9 a.m. Free parking is always available in the Metro Center lot and the church lot on Water Street.
Our Welcome Committee has prepared us to welcome guests at every service! If you are a longtime Episcopalian, or a visitor in Binghamton, or someone exploring your spiritual life, we want you to feel at home in our church! We will help you in any way we can without intruding if you prefer to worship quietly.
To connect with the church, we have Guest Cards in every pew. If you’d like to fill this out, you may do so and place it in the offering plate or in the basket on the Welcome Table in the church. A Greeter will also present you with a Guest Gift Bag to take home.
If you have a particular need–baptism, confirmation, marriage–or if you wish to seek pastoral counsel from our clergy, you can use the Guest Card to let us know, or speak directly to an usher, greeter, or our clergy.
As a downtown parish, we celebrate our ministry to guests, newcomers, and seekers! Each Sunday we look forward to meeting those who may be visiting the area, for instance. A warm welcome awaits you at Christ Church!
