Relax into Summer Schedule

Our summer schedule begins June 16 and continues until the Sunday after Labor Day.

Come as you are and join us on Sundays for worship:

  • 9 a.m. – Traditional service with Eucharist, in the Chapel, and
  • 5:30 p.m. – “Simple Sunday service” with Eucharist, in the Chapel.

Informal potluck gatherings:  On June 30 and July 28, stay after the 5:30 p.m. service for an informal potluck dinner (6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.).

Music: We have opportunities for you to select your favorite hymns  for a service on a specific Sunday, while helping us fund our pianist to accompany the service. We need a total of $100 per week. Please contact Pam Goody at for details and to arrange your selection.



View New Exhibit in Art Gallery

Feel like taking a ride? The Community Art Gallery at Christ Church is featuring a vibrant solo exhibit by artist Marne Rizika, titled “Earth Movers: Paintings, Drawings and Prints”. All members of the Needham community are welcome to stop in to view the exhibit during the following hours: Mon – Thurs 9-1;  Sun 9-11.

Marne’s fabulously bold and bright tractor paintings evoke another place and time, with long summer days outside in the fields. Her work has been shown throughout the Northeast and beyond. With a strong interest in architecture, construction, mechanical objects, and the transformation and reinvention of landscapes, Marne dedicated 8 years to on-site sketching at the Big Dig in Boston, the largest public highway project in U.S. history. Her work will be exhibited at Christ Church through the end of July, and a portion of the proceeds from sales will go toward the restoration of the church organ.
