Whoever You Are
Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church, a member of the world wide Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church USA. We are a thriving integrated and all inclusive congregation proudly located in the Callowhill section of downtown Reading, Pennsylvania. Our congregation began in 1763 and the current beautiful church sanctuary was built in 1826. Our primary form of corporate worship emanates from the richly spiritual Book of Common Prayer, while the heart of our personal spiritual experience in the Lord Jesus Christ is through contemplative prayer. We believe and know that unconditional divine love is how we can all experience God, all the time.
