Christ Church offers year-round programming for adults. Weekly Bible study on Thursdays provides opportunity for ongoing learning. Our annual Lenten Series allows for focused study as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter. Annual events like our Theologian in Residence provide in-depth learning from a renowned and respected scholar. Along with our in-house educational programs, Christ Church also organizes day trips to museums and special events, offers spiritual retreats such as our annual women's retreat, and at times hosts pilgrimages to England and the Holy Land.

Simply Christian - March 18

Simply Christian is a new Sunday morning discipleship series exploring the foundations of Christianity. It also serves as preparation for those interested in receiving the sacrament of baptism. There are companion readings for each Sunday, and the series is loosely based on N. T. Wright’s book, Simply Christian. The last session in this series will take place on March 18 at 10 AM in Parish Hall A. If you would like to attend or learn more, please contact Stephen Setzer.

Program Lunch & Lecture with Piffaro - April 11

On Wednesday, April 11 following the 12 PM Eucharist in the Chapel, there will be a light sandwich lunch in the Parish Hall with a fascinating lecture/demonstration by Joan Kimball, founding member of Piffaro, the Renaissance music ensemble. Each year, Piffaro holds several concerts in its Wilmington concert series right here at Christ Church. We'll have the opportunity to share fellowship with friends and to learn all about the wonderful instruments and the music written for them that are played during Piffaro's performances. A small donation to help defray the cost of the lunch is appreciated. This event is sponsored by the Elder Ministry, but all ages are welcome!

Books, Brew, & Banter

Books, Brew, & Banter meets weekly to read a spiritually uplifting book together, with plenty of time for discussion and laughter.  Join us on Tuesdays in Room 301 at 10:30 AM. New members are always welcome!  Bring a cup of brew and enjoy lots of banter with this group whenever your schedule permits. Currently, the group is reading The Meaning of Jesus by Marcus Borg and N. T. Wright. For more information, please contact Marty Rushlow by filling out this contact form.

Thursday Morning Bible Study

This study is led by The Reverend Ruth Beresford. Following the 6:30 AM Eucharist in the Chapel, books of the Bible are discussed over an informal breakfast in Room 211/212. Each session ends at 8:00 AM. This is an excellent opportunity to take time out of a busy schedule for worship, fellowship, and deepening our knowledge of Scripture. It’s a great way to begin the day.  For more information, please contact The Rev. Ruth Beresford.

Women's Retreat

Each January women in the parish gather for our annual Women's Retreat at Memorial House, the Diocese of Delaware's retreat center in Rehoboth. All enjoy time for quiet reflection as well as lively discussions, sharing, and social time. For more information about this event, please fill out this contact form.
