All of our regular Sunday worship services are Eucharistic, where Communion is offered. All are invited to receive the consecrated bread and wine, including small children. (Gluten free communion wafers are always available.) If for any reason you would prefer not to receive Communion, you are welcome to approach the altar rail and place your arms across your chest to indicate you would like to receive a Blessing.
After speaking with a number of health care professionals today, and with the helpful thinking of our parishioner, Dr. Don LLoyd-Jones, Chair of the Department of Preventative Health at Northwestern, we are closing Christ Church for at least two weeks. It is becoming increasingly clear that the only way to flatten the transmission curve for this virus is for all of us to stay home for at least this period of time.
Sundays at Christ Church – 784 Sheridan, Winnetka, IL
8:00AM Holy Eucharist
A faithful core of parishioners attends this service, which is perfect for those who prefer the quiet spirituality of this earlier morning service.
Our Church Nursery is staffed by three professional childcare providers and is open during Sunday morning services and any special events requiring childcare.
9:30AM Choral Holy Eucharist with Organ and Choir
This large, family service has the same excellence in preaching as the earlier Sunday service with the addition of remarkable music. Small children ages 3 through 2nd grade attend Church School during the first half of the Service, joining their parents in the pews at the Peace. All children and adults are invited to attend age-appropriate Christian Formation offerings from 10:45 – 11:30AM.
Taizé: If you are in need of an hour of quiet prayer and meditation, please join us for a time of grace and peace. This candlelit, contemplative service will include readings, prayers, and silence interspersed with tuneful chants accompanied by violin and keyboard. We’ll be holding Taizé services this coming season on the following second Sundays of the month at 5:30PM: TBA
