Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to some questions that are often asked at Christ Church.  If you don't find the answer to your question here, please call the parish office at 610-566-7525.

How do I schedule a baptism?
It is best to call the parish office and set up an appointment to meet with the rector. We require that one parent be a member of the church. The rector meets with the parents to instruct them about the meaning of baptism and their duties to help the new Christian grow in the knowledge and love of God.

Do you have a nursery?
Yes! We have a nursery located on the lower level of the main building. Nursery care for infants through children who have just turned 3 years old is provided by a paid staff person on Sunday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and during various special events.

Do you have a Christian Education program for children?
Yes, our church school program offers Christian education for children 3 years old through 5th grade. Our Middle-High youth program (LOGOS) is offered for youth in 6th through 12th grades. Christian education is held on Sunday mornings following our 10:00 a.m. worship service from September to mid-June. Each class is staffed with a team of two or more teachers.

How do I become a member of Christ Church?
If you are a member of another Episcopal church, your membership can be transferred to Christ Church. With your permission, we would write to your previous parish and ask for a letter of transfer. When we receive the letter of transfer, your records are recorded into the parish register. If you are a baptized or confirmed member of another denomination and wish to become a member, you need to present your baptismal certificate to Christ Church. It is best to call the parish office and set up an appointment to meet with the priest regarding instruction.

How do I arrange for a wedding at Christ Church?
For persons seeking marriage, one of the couple must be a member of the church. You will need to schedule an appointment with the priest for a series of reflective periods of instruction. Please call the parish office at 610-566-7525 to set up an appointment.

Do you rent out your facilities?
