Christ Episcopal Church

Riverton, New Jersey




  • Welcome




Christ Church has been welcoming friends, neighbors and visitors for over 150 years. Historic Riverton’s first congregation, Victorian Riverton’s only Victorian house of worship has been the spiritual home of Christian people of this stretch of New Jersey’s Delaware River waterfront since 1855. Traditional but not stuffy, our diverse congregation hails primarily (but not exclusively from) the Tri-boro area of Riverton, Cinnaminson and Palmyra and neighboring communities.


Know that whether you are a long-time Rivertonian, new to the area, or just passing through, that you are most cordially welcome to join with us in the worship of almighty God. Our doors and our hearts are open to you.


Christ Church is handicap accessible via a ramp on Fourth Street. We are also air conditioned in the summer.


Come and join with us, and our hope is that you will enter in peace, and leave with the conviction of the Psalmist, “I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!


Welcoming Prayer

Holy Spirit living within us,
guide our hearts and minds as we welcome
today all those who worship with us at Christ Church.

Give us discerning hearts so that everyone who crosses
our threshold feels welcomed in the spirit of your love.

Help us to recognize each person as an
individual sent by you who will enrich our lives.

And most of all, O God, let this be a place of love
and acceptance of all your children; in the name of
your Child, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
