Who Are We?
The mission of Christ Church Glendale is to reach out warmly to all people, worship passionately, nurture our community and encourage spiritual growth in order to reconcile ourselves to God and each other in Christ.
For over 140 years, people have been worshipping in these historic buildings. Today, we are a diverse community, bound together in Christ, celebrating our unity through our corporate worship and service. We come from a variety of experiences and backgrounds within the Christian faith.
We draw our members from many communities throughout Greater Cincinnati.
We are a parish in the Diocese of Southern Ohio of the Episcopal Church.
8:00 a.m. - It is a quiet and reflective worship, with no music, lasting about 40 minutes. This service uses the Holy Eucharist Rite I from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. This liturgy retains much of the ancient and beautiful language from the First English Prayer Book, published in 1549. Held in our beautiful neo-Gothic church, it is a quiet and reflective service, with no music, lasting about 40 minutes.
The setting for the 9:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist is the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, on the lower level of our building. This beautiful and flexible place is contemporary in architecture and filled with light. The less formal language and non-traditional liturgy (with elements from many Christian traditions) fit well here. The Schola Cantorum, our children’s choir, offers a weekly anthem and supports the singing of hymns and service music during the program year. There is continuing evolution of this liturgy, centered on the Eucharist, as the space was completed in Spring, 2014, and a new pipe organ is being built here in Autumn, 2015. This relaxed service follows the basic “rule of thumb” to stand for prayer and song, and sit to listen. Participation by all is the norm, even to baking the homemade bread for communion. Generally about 50 minutes in duration.
The 11:00 a.m. celebration of Holy Eucharist is held in the church, a beautiful and historic place built in 1868 and surrounded by stained glass portrayals of events in the life of Jesus. This traditional service includes hymns and music with our volunteer adult choir, processions, acolytes and sermon, using either the more traditional Rite I, or the updated Rite II from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. It is generally about one hour in duration.
Welcome to Christ Church Glendale. We are a church of deep roots and growing faith. An Episcopal Chuch born from the Church of England, we are steeped in its rich theological and liturgical tradition. It is from these roots that our faith and its expression continues to grow.
