a traditional Episcopal church
The Anglican Church of the Holy Comforter is a parish of the Diocese of the Atlantic States of the Anglican Province of Christ the King. Established in 1983, the parish recently celebrated its 35th anniversary. We welcome visitors, and inquirers are encouraged to contact us and to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the truths of historic Christianity as expressed in Anglicanism.
Our primary service is the Holy Eucharist at 10 a.m. Sundays. Children’s Sunday School is held during this service. A nursery is available, though infants and children of all ages are always welcome to attend the service. Adult Bible Study meets at 9 a.m. in the library of the Parish Hall. We are now studying the highlights of the Old Testament, starting with Genesis and the creation. After services, please join us in the Parish Hall for coffee and conversation. Take pot luck with us on the first Sunday of each month. On Wednesdays, Evening Prayer is said in the chapel at 5:30 p.m.
