Welcome to Christ Church

Guidelines for In-Church Worship

Following Governor Cuomo's lifting of most of the Covid restrictions, the LI Episcopal Church issued new guidelines for worship.   To help you when you come to worship on Sunday mornings this is what you will find:

  • Worship services will be back to our normal schedule of Sunday mornings at 8:00 (said) and 10:00 am (with music).
  • Masks must be worn at all times and must cover both mouth


This Sunday, June 13 we will celebrate the Holy Eucharist at three services:  8:00 am, 10:00 am, and 12:00 pm.    

  

Due to COVID-19 protocols, we ask you to signup in advance for these services by clicking on the button below.   

Seating inside the Church is arranged at 6-foot distances, although it is fine for those who live in the same household to sit together. Masks are required to be worn at all times. Restroom access is for emergency use only. For those not attending in person, videos of these services will be available on our website and our Facebook page.


Please familiarize yourself with the Guidelines for In-Church Services, below. 


Our aim is to do two things at once: maintain people's capacity to connect with Christ Church online through worship videos, and offer the safest setting we can, in church, for those who wish to attend these simple services in person.

Due to the coronavirus Bishop Lawrence Provenzano has made the difficult decision to direct all Churches in the Long Island Diocese to cancel all services and all gatherings that use church facilities until July 1.  To view alerts from the Diocese, please go to their Emergency Diocesan COVID-19 website.


In addition, the Learning Tree and Day Break organizations are closed until further notice.  Alcoholics Anonymous meetings will be held by telephone conference call.  If you would like to join a 8:00 pm meeting on either Wednesday or Sunday nights, please call  1- 425-436-6345.  Access Code: 679 448.

God of healing and hope, in Jesus you meet us in our places of pain and fear. Look with mercy on those who have contracted the new virus, on any who are vulnerable, and on all who feel in danger. Through this time of global concern, by your Holy Spirit bring out the best not the worst in us. Make us more aware of our interdependence on each other, and of the strength that comes from being one body in you. Through Christ our wounded healer. Amen.

(The Reverend Dr Sam Wells; St Martin-in-the-Fields, London) 

Mr. Charles Dicken's reads "A Christmas Carol"

If you missed the Premiere showing of Mr. Charles Dickens's annual reading of his celebrated story, "A Christmas Carol," and would still like to see it - please click on the button below to connect to the video.  


The reading is a fundraiser for an organization very close to Mr Dickens's heart, the Interfaith Nutrition Network ("The INN" for short), serving hungry and homeless Long Islanders since 1983.  Please make your donation by sending a check payable to Christ Church, with "INN" in the memo line and mailing it to 55 East Main Street, Oyster Bay, NY 11771.

This goes on the Music page if we re-start concert series.

Christ Church is also host to a variety of extremely talented ensembles and performing organizations, such as The Long Island Baroque Ensemble and eVoco Voice Collective.  If you are interested in bringing your musical troupe to Christ Church, please click here for rates and information. Or, please contact Elisa Dragotto, Concert Series Director at (516) 922-6377.
