Come and be…

Fed. Emboldened. Energized. Refreshed. Restored. Opened. Transformed.

Welcome to Christ Church!

Everyone is welcome.

You will find that Christ Episcopal Church Kensington is a vibrant community living into Jesus’ teachings of unconditional love.

No matter who you are, or where you are on your faith journey, you’re invited to fully participate in the services and be part of the church family. With a variety of worship services and dozens of education, outreach, and fellowship ministries, it is easy to fill your spiritual needs and find your special area of interest at Christ Church. 

We love you and want to support you through this challenging time.

We are here and gathering in person and online throughout the week. Follow the latest announcements to see what is happening at Christ Church and with our partners in the community.

“It is one of our primary roles as places of worship to build community outside our own walls. As followers of Jesus, our primary calling is to learn and practice the Way of Love that Jesus taught and embodied.”

– Rev. Emily Guthrie     


We were very happy to see our own Rev. Emily Guthrie featured in the March issue of Kensington Neighbors Magazine. Read the whole piece, “The New Face of Spiritual Leadership in Kensington,” by clicking the button below.

New Mask Policy as of September 11, 2022

As you know, we have thankfully reached a new stage in the pandemic. While COVID remains a concern, transmission rates are low in Montgomery County, a significant number of children have been vaccinated, and the CDC and County have shifted their mask requirements. Christ Church is following suit.

In line with Montgomery County recommendations, masks are not required at Christ Church. Please know we respect each person’s decision about whether or not to wear a mask.
