Adults

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.

How to Become an Inviting Church - April 29 & May 6

Christ Church has a goal to grow and reach out to our community in new ways. This two-week series, happening on Sundays, April 29 and May 6 at 10 AM in Parish Hall A, will be led by members of the clergy, vestry, and others who are helping us explore how to become an inviting church and grow our parish.

Knowledge is Power - Take Our Survey

Please take a moment to complete this 5-question survey to help us prepare for this series. We'll share the results from this survey during the series as we think about where our growing pains are in relation to our practice of talking to people about our faith and inviting them to worship with us at Christ Church. Click here to take the survey.

Movie Matinée: Risen - May 11

Join us this Easter season on Friday, May 11 from 2 to 4 PM in Parish Hall B for a matinée showing of the movie Risen. This epic Biblical story of the Resurrection is told through the eyes of a non-believer. Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a powerful Roman military tribune, and his aide, Lucius (Tom Felton), are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus (Cliff Curtis) in the weeks following the crucifixion in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem. Admission is free, but please RSVP to let us know you will attend.

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.
