This Sunday we will welcome Nina Vest Salmon, a member of St. John's Church, Lynchburg and Assistant Professor of English at Lynchburg College, as our forum presenter; she will present her work about Bishop Marmion and the integration of the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia. Nina is working on her doctoral degree at VT, focused on integration in our diocese. Nina's presentation will certainly complement our youth pilgrims' presentation on Sept. 21.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, Sept.21; Canterbury Fellowship and the Campus Ministry Committee invite you to dinner at 5:30 p.m. for our first EpiscoPALs event. In an effort for students to get to know parishioners, Canterbury Fellowship and the Campus Ministry Committee have planned a catered dinner and an evening of opportunities to get to know students, to forge relationships with one another, and to build a greater sense of integration of campus ministry into our parish life. I hope you will call the church office or send an email, and let us know you’ll be coming!
Also as a reminder, Canterbury Fellowship students will be renting parking spaces in the church parking lot during home football games; $10.00 per spot per game. Our first home game is on Saturday, Aug. 30.
Words of Welcome
Thank you for visiting our website. As you will discover both on this site and in person, Christ Church is a congregation rich with people, worship, and a variety of ministries.
We worship as a community every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. with the celebrations of Holy Eucharist. Everyone is welcome.
We worship at other times too, offering quarterly Evensong. Music is an integral part of our worship, as is the participation of the congregation.
Being one of only two churches still worshiping in original buildings in the Sixteen Squares that comprise historic downtown Blacksburg, Christ Church exists to serve God and people in our world with deep roots to our Anglican tradition and past, to embodying Christ's love in the present, and always striving to become more and more the people of God as the future unfolds.
We have a deep commitment to minister in the name of Christ to those in need, to those seeking God's presence in their lives, to the students, faculty, and administration at Virginia Tech, and to those who live out their Christian faith as Episcopalians.
If you find yourself pondering some of life's bigger questions, or perhaps you're looking for a place where you can engage your mind, heart, and soul while seeking a relationship with God and others, Christ Church invites you and welcomes you to become a part of this portion of the Body of Christ.The Rev. Scott A. West, Rector
