Missions & Outreach Ministries

The people of Christ Church seek to be the heart and hands of Jesus by aligning our passions and strengths with organizations that are working to meet the needs of our neighbors— here in Richmond and far beyond. Because God’s work is the healing of the world, we wish to focus our giving on life’s fundamental necessities—without which the ability to live a healthy life and fulfill one’s God-given potential is impossible. Accordingly, we partner with organizations working to end hunger, provide shelter, enhance educational outcomes, and ensure access to health care. And because we long for an equitable and just world in which the need for crisis responses are the exception and not the norm, we support organizations dedicated to systemic, transformative change. Christ Church organizes a variety of volunteer opportunities for parishioners and we encourage everyone to serve as they feel called!

Current Opportunities to Serve


Ice Cream Social and Book Party for our Micah Initiative Students
On May 12, from 12:45-3:00 PM we will help our little friends at George Mason Elementary School celebrate another great school year by providing an ice cream party and by giving them books to take home for the summer. Volunteer now.

For many years, Christ Church has been in a special partnership with George Mason Elementary School in the downtown neighborhood of Church Hill. Through Richmond Hill’s Micah Initiative, we support GMES by tutoring students, providing support to teachers, and through a one-on-one reading program.

Why George Mason Elementary School?

The Richmond Public Schools serve the most distressed portion of our area’s young people. These children come from families which have the lowest income, the lowest literacy level, and the highest degree of emotional and situational stress. These schools often have less resources to meet these challenges. The children of central Richmond, and those who support them, need the steady and concerted support of the entire community to succeed in school and in life.
This is why as disciples of Christ we answer the call to serve. It takes a village to raise a child. All of metro Richmond is our village!
