When Father Batchelor retired, Father Richard Tickner was assigned to serve as priest-in- charge in 1971. Under his leadership parishioners built the current church. They did much of the work themselves.

 

The Sanctuary was built to seat 250 people. 

 

The first service in the new church was held on Palm Sunday, April 11, 1976.

In August 1978, Saint Christopher’s welcomed Father Christopher Kelly. During his tenure the Christian Education building was built and completed in September 1982. It houses the offices, six classrooms, and restrooms. There is also a fenced-in playground next to it. 

 
 

Following Father Kelly’s retirement in 2002, the parish was served by a number of interim clergy including Father David Sutcliffe and the Reverend Deacon Donna Hall. Father Terrence Taylor served as priest-in-charge between 2006 and 2009.
