Christ Church Oahu is an Anglican Church in Kailua. We are a new church and really just getting started. We began gathering people in March of 2019. We are a growing group of people committed to starting a vibrant church ohana. Our tag line “Loving God, Living Aloha” summarizes our vision. We feel blessed by God in our efforts and hope you will come and visit us. The Rev. Ed McNeill is our Pastor. Ed has led churches in Canada, California, and now Hawaii. He has coached church planters and helped start several churches before leaving St. James in San Jose to move to Oahu and start Christ Church Oahu.

In 2017 Ed resigned his position as Rector (Sr. Pastor) of St. James Anglican Church and moved with Evelyn to Oahu. Ed resigned his position to answer a call from God to move here and plant a church. Upon arrival they sought to become familiar with Hawaiian culture and values. Ed found work teaching Scuba Diving at Aaron’s Dive Shop in Kailua. Ed is committed to starting an Anglican Church that loves God and lives Aloha. You can call Ed at 729-2134 or email him using this contact form.

Loving God, Living Aloha

In the early spring of 2018 a tag line, or short summary of organizational focus, for Christ Church came to Ed. “Loving God, Living Aloha”. This captured his nascent vision which still needed to be articulated. Ed intentionally waited a year before beginning to gather people to start Christ Church. Ed was particularly concerned that the Anglican Church he started respected and reflected Hawaiian culture and values.
