to love and serve the world.

We are a congregation of the Episcopal church located in historic downtown Frankfort, capital city of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
People of faith have worshipped at this site since 1836.
We open our doors daily for timeless worship, thoughtful study, meaningful service, and hearts embraced by Christ. 

Look around and get a feel for our church -

We are an affirming church. 
We believe God accepts people of every race, culture, age, ability, gender, sexual orientation, educational level and economic status... 
and so must we.
