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.

Sundays at Christ Church – 784 Sheridan, Winnetka, IL

8:00 am 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.

Church Nursery

Our Church Nursery is staffed by three professional childcare providers and is open during Sunday morning services and any special events requiring childcare.

Summer Worship at the Park – June 16 – Bring a blanket or chair.

During the summer months, we celebrate Holy Eucharist outside.  If you have not experienced one of these services, you are in for a real treat.  June 16 and running through September 8, the 9:30AM service will be at the Maple Street Park  on Sheridan Road in Winnetka.  The Park is one block south of the Church On The Hill, on the East side of Sheridan, where Maple St. intersects Sheridan Rd.  There is very limited parking at the park, but street parking is available on Maple and the lighted intersection will allow you to cross Sheridan safely.  If the weather does turns bad, the 9:30AM service will occur at the Church on the Hill 784 Sheridan Rd.  Just look for our sandwich boards in front of the church and at the entrance to the park.

Beach Blanket Ministry

During the first part of the service we offer a program for children with songs, stories and activities. Please have your children join Melissa Durbin and Elizabeth Clemmitt on the brightly colored beach blankets.  We re-join everyone at the Peace.

Helpful Tips…..

  • Bring a blanket or chair.
  • Always a good idea to bring bug spray.
  • The shade can be chilly.  (We do live near Chicago.  You know…colder by the lake.) Bring a sweater or sweatshirt.
  • The dress code is no code.  Shorts and a t-shirt are most appropriate.
