Our Sunday services are open to everyone – no matter your previous church affiliation or current position in your spiritual journey. Christ’s Church Albany is simply about helping people love Jesus, love each other, and love the world.
We gather at 25 So. Allen Street, The Elks Lodge, located near Albany’s Madison/Western Ave. split. We kick things off with Café time and children’s check‐in at 10:30am. Be sure to look for our signs around the immediate area to help you find us.
What to Expect on Sundays
What to Expect
We enjoy a welcoming, laid‐back atmosphere with casual dress and plenty of coffee,as well as homemade goodies. Services last about an hour and include a teaching, music, and reflection. All who choose to do so may participate in open communion. For your little ones, we offer a secure children’s area where kids can learn about Jesus in a fun environment.
After each service we offer a 10‐minute class covering 10 things about Christ’s Church Albany. This is a great chance for you to ask questions and get a better look at who we are. The 10 is held in the first row immediately after service.
We have arranged access to plentiful parking for Sunday services. Spaces surrounding The Elks Club, spaces at the St. Peter’s Dental Center, spaces at the Trustco Bank, spaces on adjacent streets such as West Lawrence or Allen Streets.
We want to be good neighbors, so we kindly ask that you utilize these parking options and avoid using spaces needed by the Madison Avenue businesses, restaurants and cafés which are open on Sunday.
Speaking of the great businesses in the area, we encourage you to patronize them before or after services. We love the choices!

- Junior’s Bar and Grill, 1094 Madison Ave.

Serving Teams make everything from Sunday services, Café snacks, and CCKids to community events happen for Christ’s Church Albany.
All of our teams are made up of normal people who believe that they have time and talent to share with others.
How do you feel about tension?
Do you enjoy unresolved conflict?
Do you relish unclear directions?
If you are like most of us, the answer is a resounding NO! We like things to be in nice clean packages that we can either accept or reject. When it comes to religion this is definitely the case. We want answers, truth, and clear rules. This is what makes Jesus so difficult. Jesus is messy.
Jesus regularly takes on issues by not choosing sides but choosing to live in the awkward middle – in the land of AND.
Join us Sundays at 10:30 am, 25 S. Allen.
