Welcome to Our Schedule of Worship Services
Holy Eucharist on Sunday mornings at both 8 and 10. The 8:00 service on Sunday is a Rite I Holy Eucharist using the Book of Common Prayer. That means that we use traditional, Elizabethan language in the prayers. Our 10:00 Holy Eucharist uses contemporary English. That service also features our choir leading us in song, supported by our pipe organ. We also offer Church School for kids and a nursery for little ones.

Summer Worship Schedule: Beginning on Sunday, June 23, our summer worship services will be on Sundays at 9 am and 5 pm.
Jazz & Musings, Sunday, June 9 at 7PM
The theme for the 22nd evening of jazz and readings formerly known as Jazz Vespers is "What more can I say?" Songs by George and Ira Gershwin, Isham Jones, Jerome Kern, Burton Lane, and Johnny Mandel will be introduced with some quirky readings that cover the gamut from a 17th-century poem, "To His Coy Mistress" to a rant by Frank Zappa, a husband-wife argument from Steinbeck's "Winter Of Our Discontent," and a quip from Mae West.
Our musicians are Leigh Henry, Vocals and Bongos; Dave Savitsky, Sax; Martha Meyer, Keyboard; Matt Dwonszyk, Acoustic Bass; and Jim Royle, Percussion.
A reception is sponsored by the Men's Group and the CCP Choir following the concert.

A Prayer from our Discernment Committee:
Almighty God, you know the needs of your Church in every place: look graciously upon us, the people of Christ Church Redding, and grant us the guidance of your Holy Spirit as we seek a new Rector for this parish.
Give us discernment, wisdom, and confidence in your timing.
Guide the members of our committee, as they labor to be faithful in seeking your will.
We pray for the life of our parish, that we may continue to be strengthened in our mission to be Jesus Christ’s heart, hands and feet to our neighbors no matter where they are on their journey of faith.
Bless us with mutual trust and respect, courage, and foresight as you shepherd our community through its journey.
Grace us with continuous direction and inspire us toward genuine self-reflection.
All this we ask as we walk in your ways to the glory of your name. Amen.
