Welcome!

We look forward to meeting you!

Christ Church is a small but vibrant Episcopal congregation serving the Seacoast region of the Diocese of New Hampshire. We strive to live the message of Christ, in which all are welcome. Christ Church is the home of Little Blessings Childcare, which serves the greater Seacoast area, with families currently residing in over a dozen towns in southern New Hampshire and Maine. Owned by and housed in Christ Church, it continues to improve and enhance its program. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental, worship and service-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and to be. We hope to provide a space that welcomes both the spiritual seeker and the seasoned disciple so that people from many starting points can find their home in God with us. If you are seeking a spiritual home or are just exploring the life of faith, we hope you will walk with us on that journey of discovery. We are in a shared ministry with Trinity Episcopal Church, 200 High St. (Route 27) in Hampton. This new model of shared ministry allows for creativity and the use of joint resources in witnessing and outreach to the Seacoast community while allowing us to maintain our unique, individual presence in Hampton and Portsmouth. We look forward to welcoming you this Sunday. The Rev. David “Chip” Robinson Vicar

Meet our Vicar!

David “Chip” Robinson became our Vicar in 2012 after eleven years as rector of the Church of our Saviour in Milford, followed by a brief stint as interim priest at Church of the Holy Spirit, Plymouth.

Fr. Chip received his Master of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary, and his undergraduate degree from Salisbury University (Md.).
