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.

Monthly Mission Highlight

Each month we hightlight a cause that we are working together to address.

FEBRUARY MISSION HIGHLIGHT: Being the heart and hands of Jesus to our neighbors

The two biggest factors that lead to homelessness are poverty and lack of affordable housing.

Homelessness has a profound impact on families. Housing instability can jeopardize children’s performance and success in school, leading to lasting achievement gaps. Homeless families have more health problems; it’s harder for parents’ to find a job and stay employed, and homeless children have twice the rate of emotional and behavioral issues—including anxiety, depression, and withdrawal.

CARITAS helps our most vulnerable neighbors break the cycle of homelessness and move from crisis to stability. CARITAS families will be staying at Christ Church February 24-March 3. You can help!
