Christ Episcopal Church is located at 824 Fairmont Avenue, across from the historic Highgate Mansion & Carriage House.
Christ Church Fairmont is a warm and openhearted parish with a rich history of serving God, the community, and each other. The members of the church are dedicated and spiritually strong. The worship of the church tends to the traditional and reverent, but laughter and the occasional baby noises are more than welcome. The church is a large, older building with character and characters!
Our Episcopal congregation in Fairmont dates from the early 1850’s. In 1952 services were held at the parish’s first formal location on Washington Street in Fairmont. A cornerstone was laid for a parish house at our present site in 1926, and, and the parish house served as the foundation for the current church, which was consecrated in 1956. A Lady Altar and bell, rescued from the church’s former location on Washington Street, are important features of our church today. The Reverend Robert P. Atkinson, who was rector when the church was consecrated in 1956, later became Bishop of the Diocese of West Virginia.
