In the first century C.E., Jesus of Nazareth inspired a movement. A community of people whose lives were centered on Jesus Christ and committed to living the way of God’s unconditional, unselfish, sacrificial, and redemptive love. That vine sprouted many branches that have found their way around the world.
Christ Church began as a small group of people in the 1890’s who dreamed of having an Episcopal church in Dublin, Georgia. That dream was realized in 1898 when the present building was constructed and consecrated on February 5, 1899 by then-Bishop, The Right Reverend C. K. Nelson, the 3rd Bishop of Georgia. Christ Church has been here ever since. We are the stewards of the oldest public building in Laurens County, a testament to our living history.
The parish hall was completed and dedicated in honor of a long serving family of parishioners in 1956. One hundred years after the founding of Christ Church, in 1994, a parishioner secured the title to a vacant lot behind the parish hall, and the garden was cultivated. The Episcopal Center, the house facing Madison Steet was added in 2012.
A feature of the Garden is the Columbarium, a place for the interment of ashes. Several parishioners, who have since joined the communion of saints in glory, ashes are interred there. The Columbarium was dedicated on May 19, 2012.
Hundreds of people's stories intersect with ours, and there are many stories of Christ Church to be told. We welcome you to join your story with ours and with the greater story of God!
