Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Christ Church

Christ Church

Marked by its Georgian Colonial architecture and bordered by a tree-lined brick path, small park and cobblestone alley, Christ Church maintains an active congregation with weekly services and offers tours throughout the day. Once a week, this church in Historic Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood rings its original eight bells, which proclaimed the United States’ independence from England in 1776.
