About

 

You are invited 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.

Our worship on the Lord’s day and often the previous Saturday evening is built around the mystical sacrament of the Holy Eucharistic at 8 am (Quiet said worship with no music), 8:45 am (A fun and relaxed Rise & Shine worship designed for families with small children in the carpeted Chapel) and 10:15 am (With full choir and hymns). Christian education and spiritual formation opportunities offered in-between worship times. Throughout the week we offer many opportunities for worship, spiritual formation, community outreach and fellowship. Our rector and pastor, The  Rev. Canon John R. Francis is easily accessible and can be found on Facebook as Padrejohn Francis. We invite you to please join us, whoever you are!
