Our Parish


A Joyful Community Sharing Life in Jesus Christ

Known as the “Parish in the Heart of the City,” Christ Church Episcopal is blessed by the beauty of its physical surroundings, which have been preserved and expanded by the energy and vision of its faithful stewards, both past and present. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the church’s vision has become a reality under the outstanding leadership and commitment of our clergy, staff and lay leadership, and parishioners.

Our mission is to embrace, equip, and empower apostles to serve Jesus Christ. We value our community, compassion, faithfulness, gratefulness, and we are inviting to all.

Christ Church is home to a diverse group of parishioners, composed of individuals who live in Greenville proper as well as various communities in and around the Upstate. We are a house of worship, prayer, education, and caring for all people, both in our parish and within our community, and offer a place for everyone.

From its humble beginnings as a mission in the unsettled Piedmont region of South Carolina, Christ Church has grown into a downtown church of 4,000 strong – a warm, welcoming, faithful parish. We are called to be A Joyful Community Sharing Life in Jesus Christ, and we strive to live out our vision in several ways:

  • Worship: Praising God through the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist
  • Grow: Growing in our faith and commitment to Christ
  • Serve: Serving our parish, our community, our nation and the world
  • Care:  Caring for those in need, sickness or other adversity
