We did a geocache in the cemetery of this church and it was a very pleasant experience. Lots of historical people buried here. Were not able to enter the actual building to see what anything looks like inside.

In an era where tolerance of others is lacking, Christ Church is a haven for those who accept all those willing to tolerate others. We now have six family members who attend regularly. The buildings and grounds are literally a piece of the American Colonies...More

Christ Church donates their building for the community organization I am involved with (Kent County LGBT group). I know they also hosted HIV/Aids testing. I have not attended church service.
