By building relationships in communities locally and globally, Christ Church Cathedral aims to empower others to glorify God and live with dignity. We’re all broken, just in different ways. By walking with others in relationship, we believe that God will change our hearts and use us to change the lives of others.

Angel Tree

The Christ Church Angel Tree serves the children and families of Harrison Elementary school, guests of Room In The Inn, and Moveable Feast, by providing Christmas gifts. For many these presents will be the only gifts they receive. Volunteer opportunities include assisting with sign ups and gift distribution. If interested in sharing in the true meaning of the Christmas season please contact Paige Kikuchi.

Christ Community Cupboard

The Cupboard provides clothing and household products free of charge to clients referred by local school Family Resource Centers and other agencies. The Cupboard is open Saturday, 10:00am to Noon in the basement of Christ Church Cathedral. To volunteer or donate, contact Kathleen Imhoff.

Emergency Assistance Fund

EAF provides financial assistance to clients in need of immediate help with rent, utilities, water, or sewage bills. Social Workers make referrals on behalf of clients in need. Clients may receive a limit of $100 per year. The Fund is supported by contributions from the congregation and is not a line item in the budget. Calls are taken once a week by volunteers on a Monday or Thursday from 10:00 until noon. Checks are then sent to service providers only. To volunteer or make a donation contact Muffy Stuart.


Habitat for Humanity

Biannually we partner with other churches in our community to build a Habitat for Humaity house for a family in our neighborhood.

Harrison Elementary Mentors

Mentors tutor at-risk students at the school for approximately one hour per week. A police background check is required. Training provided. To volunteer for this fun ministry, contact Loys Mather.

Kenyan Girls Forward

Most young girls in Kenya are not able to attend high school without additional financial support.  The government does not provide education beyond the elementary years. Without an education the options for a successful life are extremely limited.  Working in partnership with the  Kenyan Rural Women Peace Link, Bluegrass Community Foundation and the ICAN international foundation the Kenyan Girls Forward initiative encourages individuals or groups to sponsor a girl for the four years of her high school education.  ($350.00 for each year) To volunteer, call Jo Robertson at 333-1941 or Carolyn Witt Jones at 333-0944.

Lexington Pride Festival

We partner with the Lexington Pride Festival in support of the LGBTQ community. We support and affirm everyone!

Moveable Feast

This community based organization prepares and delivers hot, freshly cooked meals five days a week and a bag of groceries for weekends to people living with AIDS/HIV-related illnesses as well as individuals who are patients of Hospice of the Bluegrass.  The meals and groceries are delivered regardless of the weather by volunteers.  There is always a high level of need for these volunteers.  To volunteer, call Cissy Collins.

Refugee Resettlement

We partner with Kentucky Refugee Ministries to help find housing and furniture for families who have relocated to the Lexington area. Most recently we assisted a family from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Room in the Inn

​Room in the Inn, a movable shelter, has begun. Christ Church is honored to host 15 men for housing, dinner, and breakfast Wednesdays in November - February. We have expanded the program to every Wednesday this year to allow for more people to serve and experience this powerful ministry. For more information contact Robert Fugate.
