Welcome to Christ Church
Letter from the Rector
Welcome to Christ Church Cody. We are so glad to have you with us.
Here at Christ Church we value inclusion, spiritual growth, education, leadership, outreach and love. We extend a warm welcome to all who enter our doors and invite everyone on a journey to deepen their faith through education. The fruits of the welcome and our ongoing journey are the creation of leaders involved in God’s mission and outreach to the greater community. And in all that we do here at Christ Church we try to surround one another with the love which is Christ’s. We believe Christ Church is a valuable resource in our individual spiritual journeys and we know that our church community is enriched by the active presence of all our members.
Thank you for your commitment to the body of Christ here at Christ Church in Cody.
Reverend Mary Caucutt

History and Holy Spaces
Helvetica Light is an easy-to-read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.
The "Little Church" or "Poker Church" is the first home of our church. The space is historic, being one of the first church buildings in Cody and supposedly the product of a historic poker game between Buffalo Bill and friends.
The Little Church is currently located on our main campus, hosting special services in the summer and events throughout the year. Adjacent to the building is our beautiful Memorial Garden.
Our main gathering place for worship, the "Big Church" houses church offices, parish hall, adult education space and library, and the Little Explorers Preschool. The space was constructed in the 1960s and has been our home ever since.
The space is large and welcoming, hosting two Eucharistic services every Sunday at 8 and 10 am. Many of our special events and classes are held either in the adult education space or parish hall throughout the year.
The establishment of a chapel on the North Fork was the Christ Church Men’s Club main project in 1964. The construction of the chapel was completed November 1, 1965, and by June 1966 agreements to house the priest at a nearby lodge were signed. Wayfarer's Chapel's first service was held in 1966.
Services are held on Sundays from mid June through the end of August.
