Invitation to "While We’re Apart" by Christ Church Bronxville

By VIncent Preti, Communications Director at Christ Church Bronxville 

Apr. 1, 2020: While we’re apart from one another helping to flatten the curve of COVID-19, we invite all in the community to join us on our new webpage, aptly titled While We’re Apart. The webpage includes various digital resources to help us keep faith and community at the forefront while we are unable to physically be together. Here are some highlights:

Daily Livestreams: On Sundays, at 10:00 AM, we are holding livestream services directly from Christ Church. We are fortunate to have much of our staff living in the parish complex, enabling us to offer these services, live music, and sermons to the community. The bulletin is published weekly on our website and sent out through our parish newsletter. Additionally, every weekday we are livestreaming our Noonday Prayer Services and a Musical Meditation at 12:00 PM.

Church School at Home: Though Church School isn’t in session, we’ve created Church School at Home, weekly step-by-step lessons centered around Biblical stories. Each lesson includes video instruction, cartoons, prayers, and interactive crafts. There are two lessons released every Friday: one for younger children in the Godly Play Class (ages 3 - 1st grade) and one for older children in the Godly Dialogue Class (2nd - 6th grades). Although the lessons were designed for those age groups, all children (and all adults) will certainly be able to follow along and take something from both lessons. We encourage parents to follow along with their children and get the whole family involved! 

Classes for Adults: Periodically, we will be holding Zoom classes. Our first class will be a two-part series on the power of Holy Week as story, liturgy, and a model for life in these times. The class begins on Wednesday, Apr. 1, at 7:00 PM and will continue the following Wednesday, Apr. 8, at 7:00 PM. A Zoom link will be provided on the While We’re Apart webpage. 

Weekly Digital Schedule:

-Sundays at 10:00 AM: Sunday Livestream from Christ Church

-Monday - Friday, 12:00 PM: Noonday Prayer Livestream and Musical Meditation from Christ Church

-Wednesdays at 7:00 PM - Short Series Zoom classes for adults

-Fridays: Church School at Home activities distributed

We will soon announce our digital schedule for Holy Week and Easter. Stay home, stay safe, and remember that you are always in the loving presence of God.

Christ Church Bronxville

Christ Church Bronxville, or "CCBNY" as it's known in the community, is the village's Episcopal church, whose beginnings date back to 1898. The current church, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was completed in 1926 and was designed by Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, who also designed St. Bartholomew's in New York City and the Chapel at West Point.

CCBNY offers a wide array of programs to its parishioners, who live throughout southern Westchester. The acclaimed music program boasts five choirs; international outreach efforts to Cuba; and education and service programs for family members of all ages. CCBNY is also home to the renowned children's music program Young at Arts (http://www.youngatartsny.org), and Eliza Corwin Frost (www.elizafrostschool.org), a nursery school for children ages 1 to 5.

Our services are as follows:
8:00AM Rite I Spoken Eucharist
10:00AM Family Choral Eucharist
5:00PM Informal Eucharist

"No matter where you are on your spiritual journey there is a home for you at Christ Church. Our worship, music, education and outreach challenge us to embrace holiness and fearlessly share Christ's love."
