“You are entering a conversation that began long before you were born and will continue long after you are dead.” This sign greets worshippers as they enter Winchester Cathedral in England. Jesus walked the earth, preached, taught, healed and passed along a message of hope, love and justice. Since his death, Christians formed churches to worship and serve the world in Jesus’ name. We inherit a tradition of worship that incorporates singing, Scripture reading and a weekly celebration of the last supper. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate fully in worship and Holy Communion, especially children. If you want to learn more about the Episcopal Church or membership, please speak to our clergy.
In the repetition of our rituals and the receiving of blessed bread and wine, we open our hearts to the mystery that is God. In the greeting of one another, we open our hearts to each other. When worship is concluded, we open our hearts to the world. Welcome to the lively, ancient, beautiful conversation.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Wilkesboro, N.C: A physical landmark of beauty and a spiritual beacon of hope since its founding in 1836. A parish with a long and storied history, at St. Paul’s we pray together, work together, learn, laugh, and sing together. We try every day to share a little bit of God’s love with our hurting world.
The Holy Eucharist (Rite II) is at the center of the community’s life and is celebrated at 8:30am and 10:30am every Sunday. The Wednesday evening Eucharist is at 5:30pm in our historic chapel.
As we celebrate God’s love and try to extend that grace into the world through prayer, worship and outreach we invite all to join us. You are welcome here.
