Worship and Pray With Us


Caring for our neighbor and adhering to all CDC (Centers for Disease Control & Prenvention) and State of Emergency guidelines, the Episcopal Church in Delaware has suspended all in-person worship services in the diocese through May 15th due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. However, there are many of our churches, as well as our bishop, the Rt. Rev. Kevin S. Brown, that are holding daily and weekly  services via livestream. We invite you to join our community in livestream worship during these times. View all of the listings below to find worship options in the Episcopal Church in Delaware.
