Christ Episcopal Church is a historic Episcopal church on NY 20 in Duanesburg, Schenectady County, New York. It was built in 1793 and is a two-story, rectangular meeting house with a freestanding tower. The square tower with octagonal spire was erected in 1811. Also on the property is a contributing carriage shed and cemetery.[2] General William North (1755 – 1836), who owned the nearby North Mansion and Tenant House, is buried in the crypt.

The property was covered in a 1984 study of Duanesburg historical resources.[3] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
