Christ Church has a variety of opportunities for growing in the knowledge of Christ. On Sunday mornings, Christ Church clergy and laypersons teach adult classes on various topics beginning at 10:00 am. Bring your Bible!

Other opportunities for study include the Men's and Women's Bible Studies, Neighborhood Groups, and Education for Ministry (EFM), which meets during the week.

Adult Christian Formation is an essential ministry of Christ Church. We offer a variety of Bible studies and small group studies which equip adults to grow more fully into the ‘stature of Christ’ (Ephesians 4.13).

Weekly Bible Studies for men and women meet at Christ Church Downtown throughout the school year. Coffee and tea are served and the groups are open to all.

Men's Bible Study, a study on Galatians , Tuesdays beginning September 11 from 8:00-9:00 am, Epiphany Rm., led by Father David.

Lectionary-based study, Gospel reading - Wednesdays, 7:15 am, in the Undercroft. This class seeks to explore the history, understanding, intent and applications of the scriptures to, in and for our mission and discipleship in our daily lives. Members participate in the discussions with their thoughts and comments, so we learn from each other and grow in the understanding of how we can commit ourselves and our lives to the services and missions we are called to perform. Come at any time, each week does not build on the next. Led by Charles Wentworth.
