Dear Visitors, Newcomers, and Seekers,

Christ Episcopal Church is located on eleven acres of beautifully-landscaped grounds at the Jersey shore in Toms River, New Jersey. Founded in 1865 in the heart of downtown Toms River, we have a long history as a vibrant and welcoming parish through our rich tradition of worship, music and outreach. We have a modern approach to worship in an effort to become more family-friendly.

Our worship services are Eucharist-centered and baptised Christians of all ages are invited to receive communion. We welcome all people and all ages, as we are all one family in Christ. Our church welcomes young families and strives to provide a comfortable environment for worshipping with children.

Our services and liturgical events are structured to meet the spiritual needs and wants of our members, and to encourage visitors to feel welcome. Our Saturday evening service is a casual Rite II, held in our beautiful Chapel. Sunday morning offers two services; the first being Rite II with music and the second, a Latino service in Spanish with culturally traditional music. On the third Sunday of every month there is a Family Church Service in the Chapel which allows our church school families to worship together. We value equality and welcome all to attend any service. Church school is held during both Sunday morning services.

Christ Church has various outreach programs including the Christ Church Food Pantry, Your Grandmother’s Cupboard, and the Christ Church Cafe, to name just a few. These programs are all run by Christ Church volunteers.
We welcome you to come and visit Christ Church any time!
