Christ Church is a congregation of some 250 households from over 30 communities of New Hampshire’s Seacoast region. We center our common life around living joyfully, connecting and serving.

Christ Church provides opportunities for children, young people and adults of all ages to deepen their faith and their connection to God in their daily lives so that we can become the hands and hearts of Christ in our broken world.

We are a founding member of Seacoast Family Promise, a program to provide temporary shelter for homeless families. We travel each year to Cuba bringing water filtration system to churches. Our worship space is open and welcoming – making it also a popular venue for concerts and recitals. Our meeting spaces in the newly renovated Parish Hall are used seven days a week by scouts, recovery groups and other community outreach programs.

Come and see what God is doing in and through this place.

For anyone visiting, childcare is available downstairs in our newly renovated Nursery room with our two-person staff on Sundays from Labor Day to Memorial day between 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM for children ages 18 months to 3 years old.  

A Message from the RectorFather Mark DSC_1337 PS Cropped Med

In church circles, people looking for a faith community are called ‘seekers.’  Are you one of them?

We live in a time when every one of us seeks something.  We seek connection with others.  We seek a place that we can call home.  We seek fulfillment and meaning in our lives. At our best, we seek to make a difference in our community and our world.

If you are seeking a community that will welcome, accept, and embrace you for who you are – worship that is vibrant and reverent, that invites you to experience the transforming love and grace of Jesus Christ – opportunities to reach out into the wider world in order to make a difference by helping people in need – a church that encourages imagination, facilitates discussions, honors traditions, and enables people to live faithfully in their daily lives?

If so, Christ Church may be the community for you. Please wander through this website.

The next step would be to visit us. Come to worship, sign up for a class, attend a Forum or a concert.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you.  Whoever you are, and whatever you’re seeking, there’s a place for you here.

The Rev. Mark B. Pendleton
Rector
