About St. Bede's

lessons and carols

Join us for Lessons and Carols on Saturday, December 24th at 4pm followed by refreshments and Holy Communion for those who wish to attend.



Bishop_Rector St. Bede's is a community of Christians who seek to learn from and emulate our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that Christ offers us a new life, which we can begin to grow in immediately, and which will be perfected after our passing through this world. We therefore see the Christian life as something to be lived presently, and not only as a hope for the world to come. Our particular practices are rooted in the conviction that the 'faith once for all delivered to the saints' is the product of divine revelation, and is to be reverently received by the people of God. The creeds of the church, in particular the Apostle's, Nicene, and Athanasian creeds, are, we believe, accurate statements of the teachings of Holy Scripture. Our worship is largely liturgical for similar reasons. We believe that worship should be a reverent response to the character of the true and living God, and that it ought therefore to carefully reflect God's revelation of Himself in Scripture. Our worship services therefore are carefully and thoughtfully prepared celebrations of God as revealed in the Bible.


History of St. Bede's

St. Bede's was founded in 1980 as a mission of St. Jude's Anglican Church. St. Bede's is a member of the Anglican Episcopal Church, and is a cathedral parish, meaning that our parish is also the home church of an active Bishop.  Additionally, we are within the United Episcopal Church of North America, and more information can be found at www.unitedepiscopalchurch.org

Our Goals

  • To encourage one another in a sincere love for God with all of our heart, soul, and mind.
