Christ Church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts serving the town of Andover and surrounding communities. It was established in 1835 and continues to enjoy a thriving congregational life of worship, fellowship, and service. Parishioners come from all walks of life, and from many denominational backgrounds. We are a community of young and old, of those who are firm in the faith and those struggling to make sense of it all. We welcome people of all ages and stages in life and in the journey of faith. Everyone is encouraged to participate in our programs of Christian Formation, where we strive to present the faith in ways that are understandable and accessible to all. We are a community of support for individuals and families -- traditional families and non-traditional families alike. All are welcome here.
Opportunities for service abound at Christ Church, whether through our well-established Thrift Shop and Children's Center ministries, through worship and Christian education, participating in our fabulous music program, or in one of our many ministries of outreach and mission such as our youth mission projects, Habitat for Humanity, Neighbors in Need, Bread and Roses, or Esperanza Academy, School of Hope.
First and foremost, we are a community that gathers week by week to offer worship to God and to be fed for our journey in the Eucharist. Every hungry soul is welcomed at the table in this place. We invite you to join us!
