Join us at 8:00am & 10:30am

Worship is the center of our life at Christ Church. Each Sunday pw IMG_7093 522 x 600morning we celebrate the Eucharist, also called Holy Communion, at our worship services at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. (9:30 a.m. from Memorial Day to Labor Day).  We use the Book of Common Prayer and other supplemental rites available to us.

The altar is a place of welcome and invitation. In the Eucharist, Christ is present, welcoming us all, whoever we are.

On a monthly basis we celebrate the Eucharist at nearby RiverWoods and Langdon Place, two of the Exeter area’s continuing care communities.

Lent and Holy Week 2017

 Wednesdays

Each Wednesday in Lent we will set time apart from 11:00 a.m. to noon, and then again from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. to gather in the Chapel for prayer and reflection.  Our guide will be the little gem of a book by noted author Walter Brueggemann.  The series begins on March 8 and concludes April 5.  Email Mark at mpendleton@christchurchexeter.org if you are interested in gathering with us.
