Additional comments re: compensation, benefits and housing.

Rectory is located on the church campus in the heart of beautiful downtown Madison. The first floor was renovated in 2022.

Liturgical style and practice


Beautiful music is integral to our services, and the acoustics in our sanctuary allow it to be showcased perfectly.


We’re a congregation that prides itself on a rich history that includes our historical church and rectory nestled among award-winning gardens. Christ Church provides a respectful and accepting environment that welcomes parishioners from diverse social and cultural backgrounds to worship God together.


When there is conflict at Christ Episcopal Church, it resides under the surface. That's where we like to keep it. We handle our differences in a context of prayer, trust, and love. We pray for those who disagree with us; we trust that the hearts of those who disagree with us are in the right place; we love those who disagree with us--understanding it is quite possible that it is they who were sent to help God change our own hearts.


Our prayer is to find a faith leader who will join us as we strive to grow in faith, following the example of Christ, strengthen our community outreach and impact, continue our rich tradition of inclusivity, develop our engagement with members of all ages, and value the unique wisdom of our aging parishioners and lay leaders.

We fervently hope to find an energetic, optimistic rector with an appreciation for our uniquely historic Church and town, while joining us as we continue to expand our progressive influence in the beautiful community of Madison, and grow together in our Christian faith.

We pray that this 3/4 time position will enable the right candidate to fully embrace and explore the many social and cultural opportunities that our vibrant community offers.
