"Come unto me, all ye that travail and are heavy laden, and I will refresh you." -- Matthew 11:28
Thank you for visiting Christ Church! While no website can fully convey the true spirit of a church, we hope that by exploring this site you can gain a better view into our Christian community. Please consider this to be an invitation to you to come worship with us and share our fellowship joyfully praising Christ in a caring and compassionate family of Christians.
As we celebrate our 175th year as a parish, we are appreciative of our rich heritage and tradition but we are far more focused on where we are going than where we have been. The wisdom of many years serves as the foundation for our leap of faith into the future.
On January 11, 2017 The Reverend Nicholas A. Hull was installed as Rector of Christ Episcopal Church by the Bishop of Southwestern Virginia, The Right Reverend Mark A. Bourlakas. The Celebration of New Ministry included a sermon by Father Nick's good friend from seminary, the Reverend Jonathan C. Chesney, a presentation of gifts from parishioners, and beautiful music offed by St. Christopher's Choir, directed by Lynn Gardner. It was attended by family, friends, and colleagues. The beautiful service was followed by a reception in the Parish House. We know our future will be filled with great promise and unlimited opportunity.

Christ Episcopal Church is renting a charter bus, which will leave CEC's Parish House parking lot at 7:30 am to take everyone to The Episcopal Revival service which is being held at 10:00 AM, January 27, 2019, at the Berglund Performing Arts Theatre in Roanoke, VA. Bishop Michael Curry is presiding. The bus will pick everyone up at the Berglund Center at 12:00 noon for the return trip to Martinsville.
Please sign up by clicking here if you plan to ride the bus to the Revival. CEC is asking for a $15 donation for each person to cover expenses. Checks can be made to CEC with "Revival" in the memo line. We ask that the donations be paid before the event. However, if you need to make your donation the day of the event, Lewis Pitzer will be our contact person on the bus and will be collecting the donations.
This is a first come, first served opportunity as the bus will only hold 56 passengers. Come join us. We’re looking forward to this awesome Revival.
