Our Work in the World

Serving others (being Christ’s heart and hands in the world) is fundamental to our identity as Christians. Therefore, we at Christ Church actively serve Christ by giving our time, talents and financial support to those in need both within and beyond our parish.


Our focus has been on feeding, children’s, and housing ministries and services to the elderly.  We have hands-on group service, a variety of collections throughout the year and grants to several agencies.

Our parishioner’s hands-on ministries extend through the year and include:​​

  • Weekly banana delivery to Cameron Community Ministries

  • Weekly food for the Pittsford Food Cupboard, especially breakfast cereal. We also have parishioners who volunteer weekly.

  • We provide weekly tutoring at School #9 through the Adopt-A-Classroom program housed at St. Paul’s Rochester.

  • Every other month our parishioners prepare and serve lunch at A Meal and More, a soup kitchen located in at Christ Church, Rochester.  

  • Four times a year we prepare and serve a Sunday Celebration dinner at Cameron Community Ministries.

  • We participate in hosting of RAIHN (Rochester Area Interfaith Housing Network) at First Presbyterian Church, Pittsford, four times a year.  This was our first full year with this program and participation continues to grow.

  • We sponsor Mitzvah Day Twice a year.  Activities include sorting and distributing gently used clothing, books and magazines to local agencies, creating floral arrangements for Veterans and cleaning the church kitchen and gardens.  Our new project for the year was working with the Town of Pittsford to clean up the Auburn Trail. 


We sponsor many collections throughout the year. These include:

  • Special collections for the food cupboard, Mitzvah Day, teddy bears for Golisano Children’s Hospital, socks for the homeless, paper products for Zion House, Avon.

  • School supplies and uniforms for the children at School #9 and Cameron Community Ministries. 

  • 30 complete turkey dinners for families associated with the Rochester Child First Network. 

  • Moew than 270 Christmas Angel Tree gifts for families from Cameron Community Ministries, CASA and Baby Love, and food for the RAIHN dinners.

  • In response to the refugee crisis in Europe, we raised $5332 for relief efforts sponsored by St. Margaret’s Anglican Church, Budapest, Hungary.
