Blessed with a beautiful Parish Hall, we try to be good stewards of that space by opening it up every day of the week for groups like ‘Daybreak’ (for frail or mentally impaired seniors) which is run through the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay, Alcoholics Anonymous, The Learning Tree (nursery school for ages 2 - 4), Youth & Family Counseling Agency for their summer program, and the local Spanish-speaking congregation, Camino de Vida.
Christ Church and the Community
The Life Enrichment Center
The Life Enrichment Center at Oyster Bay (formerly the Doubleday Babcock Senior Center founded in 1977) is a non-profit, multipurpose, community-based center offering resources to the senior residents of Oyster Bay and its environs. The Center is a cornerstone making a vibrant impact on our senior community.

The adult day care program is known as Day-Break. The program operates Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall at Christ Church. For more information, please call 516-922-1770.
On Wednesday and Sunday evenings at 8:00 pm, Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meet in our Parish Hall. Alcoholics Anonymous®
is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; it is self-supporting through your own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Their primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
24 hour hotline: (516) 292-3040.
