What Do We Offer?

We offer something for everyone . The Open Episcopal Church is committed to sharing Unconditional Love with all, without exception more>

We are part of the Open Episcopal Church, a small Church with a big heart !. We are a Church without walls or barriers. We are called to share Unconditional Love with All…..with YOU. It doesn’t matter what you believe, where you come from or who you are - we minister to ALL without exception using language that connects with you. Where you need someone to talk to , to celebrate a significant life event or to offer a more traditional style of Ministry-we are here for you.

Sadly, two thousand years after Jesus delivered his radical teachings , Churches still don’t get it - rather than love, they continue to reject, condemn and ostracise - we offer a different vision and an approach that we believe takes us back to basics and the real message of Jesus:


“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ (Matthew 25: 35-36).

Many people ask where our Church is –  Jesus spent most of his time WITH THE PEOPLE, sharing, bringing God to them in terms of unconditional love. People see Church as going to a special place – going to meet with Jesus when in fact Jesus is waiting to come to them , not in a building, or at a certain time on a special day.  We bring Jesus to you.
