Welcome To Our Website
The Anglican Parish of Christ Church greets you in the name of the Lord.
If you want to greet us personally, we worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. and Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m.
Christ Church is a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion, a federation of national churches with some seventy million members. We are a member of the Anglican Diocese of Athabasca, with its headquarters in Peace River, Alberta. Christ Church has been ministering the Christian gospel in Grande Prairie since 1914, first from our original site in the centre of town and now from our “new church”, opened in 1982. Christ Church offers a blend of Christian experience, tradition, teaching and ministry that is unique in Grande Prairie. We are committed to our strong tradition of Anglican worship, seasoned with a healthy combination of traditional and contemporary music. We place a strong emphasis on biblical teaching and preaching, while seeking to make the gospel practical, applicable and livable in our modern context.
Join us on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. and again on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. at our south-side location, 6610 Poplar Drive, Grande Prairie.
Our staff will be pleased to assist you in your journey with Christ.
