Christ Church, founded in 1817, is a historic Episcopal church located at 3115 O Street, Northwest, Washington, D.C., in the Georgetown neighborhood. Its first rector was Reuel Keith (1792-1842), who with William Holland Wilmer rector of St. Paul's Church in 1818 founded an Education Society to train Episcopal priests. Rev. Keith left this parish in 1820 to accept a position at Bruton Parish Church and teach at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, although he later returned to the new national capital and taught and at the Virginia Theological Seminary when it was founded in 1823..
The current church building, built in 1885-1886, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. It is significant for its architecture.
