This weekend the 95th Annual Diocesan Council is being held at the Hotel Roanoke. Our faithful lay readers: Geno Iannaccone, Peg Moore, Jeanne Roper, and Ray Smoot are leading Morning Prayer at both 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. services. Bishop Bourlakas' address to Council will be the sermon. Sunday school and adult forum will take place as usual, with the adult forum featuring the third installment of "Christianity: The First Thousand Years."
Work on the interior of the nave continues. The west wall (Church St. end) of the church has been repaired and repainted; scaffolding is on the move! Thanks to all who have been so flexible in this time of "relocation" for worship, forum, and coffee hour.
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
