You Are Welcome Here



To Know Christ, and to Make Christ Known

New to Christ Church or just visiting?

If you are new to Christ Episcopal Church we have some safety precautions in place for COVID-19. Modifications to the Christ Church COVID-19 protocols were discussed during the May vestry meeting including how the church should move forward after the most recent decisions and guidelines coming from the City of Springfield and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The vestry has voted to approve new amendments to our reopening plan effective Sunday, May 30. Please click here and scroll down to review our most recent (and previous) reopening plans.

For those who do not feel comfortable with in-person worship or are homebound, we livestream our 10 a.m. Sunday service each week to our YouTube Channel. We also livestream a service of evening prayer each day to our Facebook page. We have three services at Christ Church for in-person worship on Sunday:


8 a.m. Rite I Holy Eucharist in the Sanctuary

10 a.m. Rite II Holy Eucharist in the Sanctuary (livestreamed to our YouTube channel)

10 a.m. Children's Sunday School in the Parish Hall (On Summer Break May 27, Resumes in Fall)

Evening Prayer each evening at 5:30 p.m. live on our Facebook page.
