Between Sundays: Weekday Offerings

Because Christ Church is a large parish, small groups are a great way to connect and enjoy more intimate fellowship with others in our church community. At Christ Church, you will find a wide variety of groups that exist to inspire spiritual growth centered around the Bible, worship, prayer, outreach and fellowship.


Education for Ministry (EfM): Time to be determined by participants, Thomas Library
EfM is an intensive 4-year study program designed by the Episcopal Seminary at Sewanee to equip laypersons for ministry by studying Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, and Theology.

One of the adult retreats/conferences we offer through Christ Church is Cursillo. “Cursillo” is a Spanish word meaning “short course.” Cursillo Weekends are offered Thursday night through Sunday afternoons three times a year at the Gravatt Camp and Conference near Aiken, SC.

A Cursillo Weekend is a time of encouragement and learning in a positive and spiritual environment for individuals or couples who are already participating members of the Church. Great meals, uplifting music and meaningful worship, short teachings by priest and lay persons, and small group time combine for a fulfilling weekend.

Learn more about Cursillo.
