Dear Friends in Christ,
Emmanuel Episcopal Church is a Christian community providing loving faith formation, service, fellowship, and worship for over 160 years. We are delighted to welcome you here and are so grateful for your visit.
You might be curious about who we are at Emmanuel. We are a small church – in size, but not in heart. We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive community. While many of our parishioners grew up at Emmanuel, with deep ties to the community, Emmanuel also draws worshipers from throughout the metropolitan Richmond area. Our beautiful 17-acre campus provides an oasis for worship, service, contemplation, and play.
Perhaps you’ll join us for worship. Our intimate sanctuary provides multiple opportunities for worship each week. Perhaps you are a gardener with an eye to community service. Our regionally recognized FOOD Faith Garden is a community garden with plots available for families and organizations in our area. Perhaps you love exploring history and the lives of those who’ve gone before us. If that’s the case, we hope you’ll spend some time in our historic cemetery.
The people of Emmanuel are dedicated to exploring new ways to reach out and share the good news of Christ and to find the many ways that we might live into our name, Emmanuel, which means “God with us”.
We are growing and we hope you’ll grow with us. Wherever you may be in your faith journey, please know that there is a place for you here at Emmanuel.
