Worship during the Coronavirus?
The health and well-being of our congregation is most important to us. We are continuing to protect the most vulnerable amongst us by masking and maintaining social distancing in our worship space.

In addition, we highly recommend the CDC website for keeping yourself informed and for the resources they provide. In particular, check out this link on some pointers for coping with the stress of the Coronavirus disease.

Worship & Parish Life
Worship servces at Christ Church at 9:00 AM every Sunday. We are currently in transition as our Missional Priest in Charge,  Rev. Sherry Hardwick Thomas, recently retired. We utilize supply priests for Holy Eucharist when available and our Lay Minister Team for Morning Prayer as needed.

We have an active devoted altar guild that works to maintain the altar, fair linens, candles and sanctuary light. The altar guild hosts a well attended town-wide annual pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday.


Our parish is looking forward to more community activities as Covid-19 restrictions ease!
 
Roxbury, Connecticut is a town of rare beauty – hills and open meadows, farms and long vistas. Specimen trees grow along the winding country roads.
Roxbury is populated by authors, actors, artists, farmers and business people forming a diverse cultural mix. The region’s schools are top notch. Minor Library is exceptional and an active Senior Center offers a multitude of programs to residents of all ages. The Roxbury Land Trust controls 3,000 acres dedicated to preserving the rural quality of the town. Roxbury is easily accessible to all the major centers in Connecticut as well as New York City.

Christ Church, located at a crossroad in the town center, is a gem. Carpenter Gothic with fine stained glass windows, a bell tower, and a first class organ. Once inside, the atmosphere is warm, quiet, spiritual - a place for reflection. It enfolds a parish of friends with the celebration of the Eucharist at our center, enhanced by music, preaching and prayer. We welcome and encourage each member- young and old - to share their individual gifts
