In 2012 a group of Anglicans from Peters Township decided that it was time to build a new and Biblically faithful expression of the Anglican tradition here in Washington County. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh was welcoming and generous to us, allowing us to worship in and later purchase the unused St. Genevieve's Church building on College St. in Canonsburg. The Anglican Parish of Christ the Redeemer was born in May of 2012. The Rev. David Wilson retired in July, 2018 and the Rev. Eric Rodes accepted the call to be Redeemer's new Rector (pastor) in August, 2018.
Christ the Redeemer is a growing church that loves to tell the old, old story of Jesus to all who will hear and knows that we need God's grace at every moment in other lives. We want you to know that God is for you, and that it is His character to always have mercy. We love you and we invite all who are interested in the Good News of Jesus Christ to come and worship with us.
Anglicanism is an old tradition that finds its roots in the Protestant Reformation and sees itself as a reliable and time-tested way to be a Christian.
We believe the Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit and is the supreme authority for our faith and practice.
We affirm the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds as accurate summaries of core Christianity.
We affirm that to be redeemed is the gift of God to us by the atoning work of Christ and that we receive that saving redemption only by grace through faith.
WHAT WE DO
We have a variety of ministries here at Redeemer and are eager to see where God will take us next. We have our monthly diaper pantry which serves hundreds of children in our area, providing them with essentials such as diapers that aren't covered by WIC or foodstamps. We also offer a variety of Bible studies throughout the week, and children's ministry on Sunday morning. We have many young families and are excited by both our present and future.
Christ the Redeemer is part of the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh, and the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). We are constituent members of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON). It is our prayer that our Lord will use us as we seek to build a vibrant and faithful Anglican church around the world.
