Located in the historic Riverside area of Jacksonville, Florida.
Christ Church of Peace is a worshipping and ministering community of believers on a spiritual journey of discovery and growth with a Christian foundation, embracing aspects of other faiths, and welcoming people of all races, genders, sexual orientations and special needs and/or challenges.
Sundays ~ 10:30 AM
Each Sunday we gather for a service that is a blended style worship that includes contemporary and traditional styles in our music, prayer, teaching, preaching, and communion. Conveniently scheduled -- neither too early nor too late -- our service moves quickly from chiming of the hour to fellowship. Regardless of your faith or denominational background, you will feel comfortable and at home with family and friends in our place of worship. Come, visit us on Sunday and experience the warmth of a friendly place you can call your spiritual home.
Christ Church of Peace believes in serving and giving back to the community. Along with spiritual activities and social events, we tithe to a number of vital community services and provide several ministries of our own:

Since we paid off the mortgage on our property and replaced the roof, we have been undertaking several smaller projects to beautify, update, and improve our facility We recently updated our restrooms, painted the front porch floor and secured the new bench/furniture, and replaced the ceilings in the narthex (lobby), conference room, and administrative office. We stripped the kitchen floors and laid new ceramic tile. We are patching and painting the walls in the kitchen. We want our facility to continue to serve our church and our community for years to come, and we are blessed by the gifts of many to make these improvements happen. Thank you to everyone involved, but especially to God!
