Christ Church is welcoming a new building for a new era.
The Fallbrook congregation, formerly known as St. John's Anglican Church, has been conducting services at Living Waters Christian Fellowship Assembly of God Church for the past two years. The church began sharing space with Living Waters after legal battles over property rights and organizational authority allowed the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego to take over the former church property (which is now operating as St. John's Episcopal).
The members at St. John's Anglican had previously voted to secede from the Episcopal Church, which is the North American branch of the global Anglican Union, and reaffiliated with a more theologically traditional conservative archdiocese in Africa. Disagreements regarding homosexuality and biblical authority are at the core of an ongoing dispute between the Episcopal Church and hundreds of its congregations, as well as Anglican bishops in other countries.
After the move to the Living Waters campus, St. John's Anglican changed its name to Christ Church. It's now affiliated with the recently organized province of the Anglican Church in North America, which hopes to be recognized by the Anglican Union as a parallel North American branch of the global church.
Christ Church's post-move growth takes a big step forward this week with the expected delivery of a five-piece manufactured building. After some preparation involving fire sprinklers, accessibility ramps and other matters, Christ Church will open its new space on the Living Waters campus very soon.
