Welcome, Latest News, & Calendar

Greetings from the Mount Washington Valley! Welcome to Christ Church, North Conway!

We welcome all: friends and new friends from our surrounding towns and communities, travelers and weekenders, those who seek a deeper spiritual connection with the mystical God the source of life, the caring and the creative, those in need of refuge or renewal – in short, any and all who sense or hear a liberating call to mirror and follow the just, compassionate, and reconciling Christ of the Gospel stories in our time.

We are a caring and deeply faithful community known for our mission work to our town and region – especially through our bustling thrift shop – and our friendliness. Stop by and say hello!

Anyone with a desire to learn more about being baptized, confirmed, reaffirmed, or welcomed into the body of Christ as expressed and followed in the Episcopal tradition is encouraged to speak to Richard (the minister). 

Every first Sunday afternoon of the month – Music Meditation – led by Ellen Schwindt: “Live keyboard (and sometimes other instrumental) music presented with its connection to human hearts in mind, and with time for contemplation interspersed between musical offerings. Come with open ears and a listening heart. You will not be disappointed.” This is a free event.  5:00 PM in the church. Next meditation date February 5, 2017.

CC Trekkers – one Saturday of each month: a meditation-focused hike up one of the local region’s many nature trails with Richard and other hiking enthusiasts to celebrate creation, participate in a simple Eucharistic-type meal, get outdoors, and meditate on the splendors of the earth and our responsible stewardship of them. Location of the hike to be announced as we get closer to the date with hikes anticipated to be 2-3 hours max. Every month a different trail. A good way to join others spiritually outside of both building and Sunday morning. Very family-friendly. Please bring water bottles, a picnic, and appropriate footwear!  This is a warm weather activity; our next hike will happen in the spring.
