Christ Church is an historic church located at Melendy Road and US Route 5 in Guilford, Vermont. Built in 1817 and designed in the Gothic Revival style, it was the first Episcopal Church in Vermont and was part of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts until the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont was created in 1832. On May 13, 1982, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Christ Church ceased to be an active parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont before the 1900s, but has never been deconsecrated and is still used occasionally for Episcopal church services.[2] It has been restored and is now maintained by the Christ Church Guilford Society which uses it primarily as a venue for musical and other cultural events as well as weddings and civil unions.

The pianist Rudolf Serkin is buried in the church cemetery.[3]
