The Episcopal Church in the Heart of Sussex County

Chartered August 15, 1774

Christ Church, Newton, is the Episcopal Church in the heart of Sussex County. We are centrally located just off the square in Newton, south of the intersection of Route 206 and Route 94.

Christ Church is the oldest church in Newton and the second oldest in the Diocese of Newark. The parish traces its origin to December 29, 1769, when a Congregation in Communion with the Church of England was organized in what was then called New Town. The parish was incorporated by royal charter on August 15, 1774. The sheepskin charter currently hangs under glass on the west wall of the nave.

Today Christ Church, Newton, is renowned for its beautiful architecture, breathtaking music program, lively children's activities, and its outreach to the community. The congregation at Christ Church Newton is a uniquely harmonious blend of people from a broad spectrum of political beliefs, gender identities, ethnic groups, and socioeconomic backgrounds who work together to be Christ’s presence in our community. Our congregation is growing every day.

Inviting God's people into worship, community and spiritual growth by commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through service to others, Christian Education and stewardship.
