A historic church and living congregation

Christ Church embodies God's unbounded love by embracing, liberating, and empowering people—whoever you are and wherever you find yourself on your journey of faith.

An Episcopal church designed by James Wren in the colonial Georgian style and completed by John Carlyle in 1773, Christ Church has welcomed people of many faiths, among them most U.S. Presidents, members of Congress, Supreme Court Justices, civic leaders, and tourists. Across the years, luminaries such as Winston Churchill, Rosa Parks, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have also worshipped here, the home church of George Washington and Robert E. Lee.

Originally built in a wooded location, Christ Church, now in the heart of the bustling City of Alexandria, offers outreach and mission programs—global and local—to bring social justice to all those God wants us to serve.

We invite you to join us to deepen your faith through worship, prayer, Christian education programs, or service in the community. We also invite you to tour Christ Church or simply experience quiet moments in its churchyard.
