Outreach: Helping our Neighbors

Christ Church has had a long tradition of outreach ministry. Various projects are oriented toward the Christ Church Parish Family, others toward the local community and still others with a focus much more global.

Outreach and Social Justice Group

In keeping with the traditional Lenten Discipline of almsgiving, Christ Church is seeking to expand its ministry footprint by being more dedicated to outreach ministries in our the wider community. We are looking for a few volunteers to gather in the next few weeks to plot our next steps forward - from possibly adopting a refugee family, to creating a food pantry for our community, to ideas we haven't thought of yet, we want your help, and your input. Please contact Fr. David at dsibley@christchurchmanhasset.org if you'd like to participate in this important task of gospel ministry.

Use Amazon Smile

Did you know every Amazon purchase you make can benefit Christ Church? Amazon donates 0.5% of every purchase made using Christ Church's AmazonSmile address to our Alms Fund, which provides food and shelter for the needy, scholarships for youth, and other charitable outreach. Help make a difference for the items you'd be buying anyway. Make a bookmark for our AmazonSmile address and visit it for all your Amazon purchases!

Episcopal Charities Appeal

Episcopal Charities funds social outreach and justice programs throughout Long Island. Checks should be made out to Episcopal Charities of Long Island and may be mailed to Christ Church, 1351 Northern Blvd, Manhasset, NY, placed in the offering at church or sent to Episcopal Charities of Long Island, 36 Cathedral Avenue, Garden City, NY 11530. If you are sending in your contribution directly to the Diocese, please note 'Christ Church, Manhasset' on your check.

Helping Hands

There are times when some of our Christ Church family need assistance, whether it is to have a meal provided for them or to be driven to an event, a doctor's appointment or to Church. If you would like to join this group of volunteers or if you have a need for a "helping hand", please let us know or talk to the Rector. Thank you in advance.

Food for the Hungry

As we continue to support the Long Island Council of Churches food pantry in Freeport, your donations of boxed pasta, canned goods, and staple non-perishable items are especially valued. Please be cautious not to donate food that is past its expiration or “use by” date.

We are now in need of a new team of volunteers to assist with shuttling food donations on a regular basis. If you’d be willing to volunteer to help deliver Christ Church’s donations, please contact the church office at 516-627-2184, or email Father David at dsibley@christchurchmanhasset.org.


Yet I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; O my God, do not delay.    Psalm 40:17
