Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church

We are members of the worldwide Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church USA. We are a thriving, integrated, diverse, 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 is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, where we receive God’s gifts to us, giving thanks through prayer and song. We believe and know that God’s unconditional love is available to all people, all the time, and we gather as a community to receive that love. You are invited to join us to pray, and to receive and give thanks. We are a community of faith committed to sharing God’s love with all as we walk the way of Christ towards union with God and God’s creation.
