Life's Big Events




Christ Church is an active Episcopal parish that offers weddings using the classic marriage liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer, for parishioners, their families, and non-members.  We embrace the joyful inclusion of all couples who seek to cross this spiritual threshold.  Questions?  Please email cwagner@christchurchphila.orgClick here to enjoy a professional video of a wedding at Christ Church, showing all its beauty and simplicity.  





If you would like to have a baptism for yourself or your child,   please contact the Rev. Timothy Safford (215 922 1695 ext 22).  We offer baptisms several times throughout the year; a brief series of classes or meetings with the clergy may be required for those being baptized (or their parents).



Please contact one of the clergy regarding scheduling a funeral or memorial service at Christ Church.

The Rev. Timothy Safford, Rector

Please note that the Christ Church burial grounds are no longer available for burials.  Ashes may be interred in the North Garden at Christ Church, with the name of the deceased listed on a brass plaque in perpetuity. 





The Christ Church Preservation Trust is a non-religious non-profit organization whose goal is the preservation of the historic Christ Church buildings and burial ground, and the interpretation of church history.
