Christ Church Durham Parish has had a presence in the Nanjemoy community since 1661. The history of the church reflects our caring and compassionate love for local neighbors. For over 350 years we have been a holy site where people can come to worship God and receive pastoral care.

Through our outreach we provide assistance to our local neighbors such as food and sometimes clothing and toys from our Joe’s Place Food Pantry. Fresh, clean water is always available from our well.

In addition, we partner with local organizations to help provide meals for families at the local elementary school, and volunteer our time and resources wherever we can. Below are some of the things we have been up to!

Who We Are

4H has always been an important part of Southern Maryland activities for youth.

Our club focuses on demonstrations done by the members and a monthly activity. We also have a yearly swim party in July and a yearly hayride in the fall for our club. In addition, we discuss and participate in events sponsored by the Charles County 4-H. Some of our members have participated in state and national competitions as well.

What is 4-H?

4-H provides learn-by-doing educational opportunities for youth that will enable them to become the leaders of tomorrow. 4-H is the youth arm of the University of Maryland Extension, a joint venture with U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Charles County government. 4-H is in every state, D.C. and in military bases around the world.
