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

DECK OUT THE DORM DONATIONS NEEDED

Richmond Hill's Armstrong Leadership Program trains and develops inner city youth, preparing them for success during and after high school. Armstrong High School is located in the center of five public housing developments where family hardship is a common reality. Many students are vulnerable to the surrounding negative influences and have few adult figures in their lives to turn to for support. As a result, the Armstrong Leadership Program recognizes the importance of supporting these youth, so that they can reach their utmost potential and overcome the tremendous adversities that they face in their lives.

At Christ Church we are called to live and love more like Jesus every day and we are committed to supporting organizations that enhance educational outcomes. We are blessed to support the Armstrong Leadership Program and hope you can help in supporting one student in a very special way.

CARITAS FAMILIES

CARITAS provides shelter, food, and necessities on a weekly basis to individuals and families in need of immediate assistance. Christ Church hosts CARITAS guests for 2-3 weeks each year and it takes over 100 volunteers to help make our campus a home during these host weeks.
