Who We Are
We are young, we are elderly;
we are straight, we are gay; we are couples, we are singles; we speak
English, we speak Spanish; we are traditional and non-traditional family
units; we are long time church members, we are just starting our spiritual
journeys; and together we are the Christ Church family.
We are blessed with a beautiful
historic church and chapel in the heart of Tarrytown, NY. From our incredible
stained glass windows to our pipe organ, Christ Church is recognized
for its dramatic architecture and interior space, high quality musical
and theatrical offerings and prophetic voice in both word and sacrament.
We celebrate and embrace a wide range of people, ages, beliefs and needs.
For the most part, we dress casually. We welcome you to join in
worship, classes, prayer and all our other activities. Or just
stop by to sit and reflect
Below are some quotes from people as to what draws them to Christ Church.
Over 20 years ago our family explored Christ Church, primarily to introduce our young son to church. At Christ Church, I have witnessed not just the words, but the embrace of "God's love, which is beyond human understanding, but not beyond our experience."
We were looking for a church and we drive past here a lot, we saw the rainbow flag and we said, we should try that, we should go there. We came one day and we never left.
We feel welcomed, people come up to us and asked us to help. Everyone in the parish is so welcoming - I feel like we belong, like this is my home.
When I stepped into the church for the first time last year, I saw Susan, the priest, preaching in the center aisle, and she was literally dancing with joy. I knew right then I would be back to find out more about this place.
I never had a church where I have felt so loved and you are such an ecletic bunch - which I like very much.
