Christ’s Episcopal Church • Castle Rock, Colorado

Welcome to Christ’s Church:
A Place to Be Fully Alive

Join Us for Worship and Study

Whether you call it “the Eucharist,” or “the Mass,” or “Communion,” or simply “worship,” you’re welcome to join us as we celebrate the sacrament of Christ’s Body and Blood. All are welcome at the Lord’s table. Here’s our weekly schedule:

A Safe Place, an Empowering Community

You go to a sanctuary when you feel a need to be safe, to be yourself, to discover who you really are. That’s because a sanctuary is a holy place, a sacred place of security and Fr Brian Blessing a Child during Eurcharist at Christ's Episcopal Church, Castle Roc, Colorado quiet. A true sanctuary, however, is more than just a building. It’s also an empowering community that provides shelter and protection, companion- ship and support. In short, a sanctuary is where you go to be, and become, fully alive.

Christ’s Episcopal Church is such a sanctuary — both a sacred place and an empowering community. The Sanctuary is a campus of buidlings on 4th Street between Cantril and Lewis Streets in historic, downtown Castle Rock, Colorado. The Sanctuary is also a coming together of loving, open, caring people in faithful Christian worship, community service, spiritual study, and joyful play.

You’ll find many ways to be fully alive on the pages of this website. The descriptions on the pages, however, are simply “fingers pointing at the moon” (to borrow a phrase from the Zen tradition). They invite you to come spend time with us, in whatever ways feel right for you.

The recent blog posts you see on this page will give you only a hint of what’s going on in this community. For a more complete picture, you’ll want to subscribe to our Fully Alive Blog. Likewise, the events listed on this page are just the tip of the iceberg. So please be sure to check out our full calendar of activities … and see when you’d like to come do something with us.
