At St. Christopher's, we understand that service to others and fellowship with one another is central to spiritual growth. Service on Sunday mornings is only one aspect of the many ministries in which you may participate, for while Sunday is the day when the largest group of parishioners gathers together, the life and work of the parish continues throughout the week, individually or in small groups or committees. This work involves service to the church, service to the community and fellowship among parishioners.
