Buildings and Grounds is a Ministry where the sum of the parts is definitely greater than the whole. It is so much more than just the physical plant.
This is truly a ministry that is connected to all other ministries within the Parish.
Maintaining the building is instrumental in providing a welcoming atmosphere for spiritual worship on Sunday, and the Parish Hall gives us the opportunity to promote fellowship and learning
The Christ Church property offers many opportunities for service, both internally and externally. We have a long list of volunteers that maintain the gardens.
The physical plant that is Christ Church is well designed to support multiple events taking place simultaneously. The sanctuary, with seating for about 350, is stunning in look and the acoustics are excellent for concerts and other large events. Harris House consists of two levels of space, with smaller meeting rooms on the lower level and a large Parish Hall with a full kitchen on the upper level. There is also ample parking in our lower parking lot as well as on-street parking on Pine Street
Christ Church opens its doors to community organizations on a regular basis. In fact, there is rarely a day when there isn’t one group or another meeting in one of our rooms. Many community organizations are provided use of our space at no charge but are required to request the use of the space in advance. In instances where a fee is being charged for attendance or where there is a suggested donation, Christ Church requires a nominal fee for use of the space. Any fee collected by the church is used for ongoing building maintenance. Additional information is available at the Community Use of Our Facilities page on this website.
