Our mission

  • 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.

  • The Parish

    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.

  • Diocese

    We are a parish in the Diocese of Southern Ohio of the Episcopal Church.

  • Sunday Services

    8:00 a.m.
    The 8:00 a.m. celebration of Holy Eucharist is held in the main church. The language of this service retains much of the flavor of the original when the Book of Common Prayer was first drafted in 1549. It is a quiet and more reflective worship. Lasting about forty minutes, there is no music and the sermon is briefer than at the later services.

    9:00 a.m.
    The setting for the 9:00 a.m. service is in All Saints Chapel at the north end of the lower level. The worship is less formal than at either the 8:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. service.

    The youth choir bolsters our congregational singing. The basic “rule of thumb” here is to stand for prayer and song and sit to listen. Participation by all is the norm with people taking turns in making homemade bread for communion. Communion itself is a sharing process. People gather in two semi-circles around which the bread is passed. Chalice bearers follow with the wine. The children come to the center of the chapel where each receives a blessing from the priest. In the summer, weather permitting, the service is held outside in the garden.

    11:00 a.m.
    The 11:00 a.m. celebration of Holy Eucharist is held in the main church. The worship space is surrounded in wood paneling and stained glass portrayals of events in the life of Jesus. The service features a sung Eucharist, with a full choir, processions, ushers, acolytes, and sermon. Depending on the season, Rite 1 or the more contemporary Rite 2 is used, offering the congregation a variety of worship experiences. During the summer months, this service is held at 10:00 a.m.

  • New Visitors

    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.

    As you browse through this web site, you will discover the many ways that we worship, work and play together. In so doing, we fulfill our mission of serving God and each other both within our parish and in the larger community. Wherever you may be on your spiritual journey, we will meet you. If you wish, we will provide you with opportunities to become involved in the life of our parish. Your greatest gift to us, and perhaps ours to you, is to join together in worship. It is a good place to begin. If you have any questions about our parish, our worship or our ministries please feel free to e-mail or call and we will be happy to answer them.

    See you in church

  • Commissions

    The commissions of Christ Church Glendale act as an extension of the Vestry, focusing on one of a number of different areas, such as Worship, Outreach, and Stewardship. Some of the Commissions are composed of multiple sub-committees and focused teams, such as the Altar Guild.
