Christ Church is a parish of the Episcopal Church, and the worldwide Anglican Communion. We believe that we are both traditional and progressive, because we honor our historic Christian traditions in our worship while we openly and honestly engage the issues of today. We see ourselves as an inclusive church where all people are welcome, and our mission is to “stand as a beacon of hope” in the center of the city.
Always striving to be faithful to the Name we bear as we remember that we are Christ’s Church, our parish works to alleviate human suffering through a variety of outreach programs; we help everyone to “grow into the full stature of Christ” through dynamic and innovative Christian Education for all ages; and we cultivate the “abundance of life” in our community through our world-class music program, including “ClassicFest”, Pensacola’s summer chamber music festival.
Central to the life of our parish is the Sunday celebration of the Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion. Our people worship God “in the beauty of holiness” with reverence, joy and enthusiasm in a way that many Episcopalians find inspiring, elegant, challenging and comforting.
With more than 165 years of history, Christ Church is one of the largest in the Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast and the state of Florida. Activities for children youth and adults take place all year long, making Christ Church a very busy place.
Our Episcopal Day School is a wonderful asset to our city. Over 400 students of many different faith traditions receive a superb academic education while also being encouraged to grow into compassionate and moral adults.
