The Christ Church Episcopal is a single-story, frame building with a concrete outer foundation measuring 25′ x 50′ raised on wood posts set on stone. This vernacular Gothic Revival style structure has a steep gable roof of corrugated iron with a tall steeple/bell tower on the entrance end, which terminates with a cross. Architecturally, Christ Church Episcopal is only one of a few nineteenth-century frame churches on the island of Hawaii. It is actually the oldest wooden Episcopal church in Hawaii. Culturally, the church has been a religious, educational, and social center for Kona.
