PRESERVATION

In 2018 the Sanctuary at Christ Church was in urgent need of repair. Decay of the aging walls threatened the stability of the structure, and the stained glass windows. Extensive preservation was needed immediately. A Preservation Team was formed lead by Bill Egan, a structural engineer, and member of Christ Church. C.W. Brinkley, Inc., and Epiphany Glass Studios were employed to work with Bill to stabilize, repair, and preserve the building, and restoration was performed on all stained glass windows.

This work is now complete, but your help is still needed to assist with the huge financial obligation this tiny church membership had to assume to save this historic church.

Please consider a donation to the

Preservation of Christ Episcopal Church

111 S. Church Street

Smithfield, VA 23430.
Thank you!
