We are an Episcopal community open to all and supportive of one another. We invite you to visit with us in order to explore and experience the warmth of our church and congregation.
Our Parish serves the Oxford Hills area of western Maine. The members of our church family live in the eight towns of the Oxford Hills, the surrounding communities and our seasonal visitors. We house the local food pantry and provide meeting space for a variety of community organizations.
The Parish was founded in 1897 and has been offering a ministry of worship, education, outreach and pastoral care since that time. The church, built that same year, was designed by Bertram Grosvner Goodhue, who also designed St. Thomas Church in New York City and the West Point Military Academy Chapel. After many decades of ministry as a mission of the Episcopal Diocese of Maine, Christ Church became a Parish in 1974.
We share our clergy with Trinity Lutheran in South Paris at 34 Buckfield Road, South Paris; 743-6906. Service time there is 8:45 on Sundays.

Faith formation is lifelong and ongoing. We offer a variety of opportunities to strengthen your faith, your knowledge of Scripture and theology, and discern what God is calling you to do in the world.
The Oxford Hills churches support a food pantry housed at Christ Church, open Mon-Wed-Fri from 9 to 11 AM.
