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.
I never had a church where I have felt so loved and you are such an ecletic bunch - which I like very much.
I was drawn to Christ Church 10 years ago when I felt the need to become more familiar with members of my town community. I was immediately drawn to the warmth of those who welcomed me. The worship felt sincere, yet not overly formal. Over these years, friendships, corporate support, and the allowance for individuality have kept me [involved]. I am grateful for the presence of God within others that is very much alive and active in this place of worship.
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 came here initially for our wedding; the church has a very realistic approach to being married.
The community here is so welcoming and accepting. And I love the forward positions on social issues. Susan really makes you think.
