Christ the King Episcopal Church – Lackland

The congregation of Christ the King Episcopal Church was established as a mission from All Saints Episcopal Church (5001 Crestline Road) in 1953. Needing larger quarters by 1975, the congregation acquired a 1907 Methodist church from Parker County. The church structure, used at the time as a hay barn, was moved to the present site on Lackland Road and restored. The gabled, wood-frame structure has a cruciform plan and a steepled belltower between the south and east wings. The Gothic Revival style structure exhibits lancet-arched windows and door. During restoration, the angle of the steeple roof was altered and church offices were constructed to the south, with a covered walkway leading to the church. The early church stands out amid the mid-twentieth century development of the far West Side.
