What is an Episcopalian anyway?

The Episcopal Church is a Protestant denomination that uses Scripture, Tradition, and Reason for an understanding of faith; at the same time we are Catholic in the way that we worship. Our service looks much like the Catholic Mass, focusing on Scripture, preaching, and the Holy Eucharist.

If you are looking for a place to belong, come to St. Christopher’s.

If you have no religious experience, or if you come from a Protestant faith tradition, or if you are coming from a Roman Catholic background, you will be able to find in the Episcopal Church a place that feels like home. Come just as you are! Whoever you are! If you are seeking a spiritual home, at St. Christopher’s you just might find out that we are just what you are looking for!

We want to spread the good news and reach out to those looking for a place to worship God in a community where they know they will belong.

We have just completed an Inquirer’s Class for those wanting more information about the Episcopal Church. If you are interested in finding out more or joining a class like this, just let us know. Email Pastor Mary Ann . . . rector@stchrisoxford.org.

Former Roman Catholics often feel at home in the Episcopal Church because our liturgy is “a little bit catholic.”

People who come from a Protestant or non-denominational background find the Episcopal Church comfortable because we rely on scripture, tradition, and reason, like protestants do.

There are no restrictions on who can belong to the Episcopal Church and everyone who is baptized is welcome to receive communion, even babies!

Come as you are and who you are. You will find a place in the Episcopal Church.

If you want a church that can be a spiritual home, focused more on prayer and spiritual life and growth, the Episcopal Church has those dimensions too.

And as far as St. Christopher’s goes, you will not find a group of people who will gather you in to be part of the community so quickly and with such joy. If you don’t believe that, come and find out.
