Who We Are

Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church!

We are glad that you are visiting our site. If you are looking for a place to call your spiritual home, we invite you to join us. We worship in a sanctuary built in 1893 that is filled with the prayers, hopes, and joys of several generations.

We are here because we found that in this gathering of people who are very different from one another, God's love makes a place for us all. Come experience this welcoming presence on your visit!
God's Peace in the Welcoming,
Bob+

Our Services

What are services like?
Welcoming and easy to follow the service. The 8 AM service is a quieter setting, but very friendly. The 10 AM service is joyful and invites those in attendance to participate at the level with which they are comfortable.

What is the community like?
The community is made up of new, young families as well as older people. Couples and singles can feel comfortable in the community. The coffee hours are friendly and have great food and coffee for everyone. Our members reflect this beach community and its easy and casual style of living. The church has built and managed a 136 unit HUD project in Redondo Beach; raised money for all terrain wheel chairs , Mosquito nets, feeding the homeless with our Methodist brothers and sisters, relief from natural disasaters and the ravages of war and famine. The community has staged three Bone Marrow Drives and raised money to cover the administrative costs of processing the donors through art shows. The community has also been in partnership with the Holy Family Adoption agency and members have donated new born items to foster families caring for soon-to-be adopted infants. We also collect gifts for families in need living in the South Bay each Advent and Christmas season. We host the Gathering Place groups from Trinity Hospice for teen and adult grief groups. One young participant sent a thank you note that captured her experience: "Thank you for letting us be sad in your holy place." We eat together, share our joys and sorrows, and seek and serve Christ in one another and the others outside the church.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome everyone and do not expect or demand others to change to be part of our community. We have had people of many different faith communities and no religious affliations come to Christ Church as part of their spiritual journey. We value and welcome everyone.
