Christ Church on the Common

The Episcopal Church in Gardiner, Maine

Outside Our Walls

“Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”   –Teresa of Avila


At Christ Church, we believe that we are called to be the Church outside our walls—to be the body of Jesus in the world.  These are just a few of the ways we serve the wider community.
