More than 260 years old, Christ Episcopal is the oldest church in New Bern and one of the oldest in North Carolina. This church building is actually the third to stand in this area. The first, completed in 1750, was later destroyed by fire. The foundation of that first church is on the current church grounds. The second church was completed in 1824 and destroyed by fire in 1871. The church seen today, completed in 1875, is a Gothic Revival building incorporating surviving walls of that second church. The steeple, with its four-faced clock, is one of the identifying marks of the downtown New Bern skyline. Among the treasures on display are a 1752 Book of Common Prayer, a huge 1717 Bible and a five-piece silver communion service given to Christ Church by King George II. Each bears the royal coat-of-arms. Church tours are available between 12:30 and 4 PM with a phone call to the office.
