Home

Welcome to the online home of the Anglican Parish of Christ Church.  Our physical home is a beautiful 1920s church at 12116 – 102nd Avenue in Edmonton’s historic neighbourhoods of Glenora and Oliver.

We hope you will give us an opportunity to welcome you to our church family. We are people who are committed to learning about our faith and we have shown ourselves to be courageous in studying challenging areas.  In true Anglican tradition, we respect differing viewpoints within the family without passing judgement.

Please use the links above to learn more about our worship, our events and our programs.   Services of Holy Eucharist are the focal point of our community but we are active in so many ways in the Church and in our larger community.  I am sure that you will find something here for you if you are seeking to encounter our wonderful God.

The Reverend Canon Maureen Crerar

Interim Rector
