Winchester Avenue Christian Church was chartered in 1899 and just celebrated 117 years of ministry (113 of them in the present building). The church is a congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The Disciples were the first religious movement to be born on American soil. Our early leaders taught Christian unity, centrality of the Lord’s Supper (Communion) and strived to restore the first century church. When visiting with us you will note that we practice believers baptism by immersion and communion is celebrated weekly. Our services are traditional in format but are leavened with spontaneity and life.
Pastor Ben Manning has served as Senior Minister since January 2012. He is a retired Army Chaplain who brings a wealth of experience, high energy and love for the ministry. We are a church where all God’s People are made to feel welcome and accepted. We strive to serve all ages and are constantly seeking ways to enhance our ministry and mission.
