The Missions of the Apostolic Episcopal Church constitute its tangible engagement with the work of the Lord, offering opportunities for worship, instruction and fellowship. As a geographically widespread church, small in numbers, the challenges of mission are significant, and the promulgation of a List of Missions is as much an aid to members of our church in keeping in contact with their co-religionists as a guide to those who are new to us. It should not be thought, however, that our scattered nature compromises our witness to Christ. Unity in faith and vision is a strength of our communion, and our aspiration is to build on that strength in the years to come.
The family of the Apostolic Episcopal Church includes a number of churches with whom we enjoy relationships of intercommunion or close friendship, and several of these missions and places of worship are listed below for the benefit of our members.
The work of the Apostolic Episcopal Church in the United States is divided into four Provinces: East, West, Central and South, of which the East is the parent Province, reflecting the legislative Charter held by the Church in the State of New York.

Ministry in Great Britain is now conducted via Community Services Ministries, a long-standing mission of practical assistance to those in need in the local community. Although small and with limited resources to draw upon, CSM undertakes a wide range of work among those in need and seeks to bring knowledge of the love of Jesus Christ to those who are at present outside the reach of the Church.
In addition, occasional services take place at a number of churches, sometimes in collaboration with other denominations.
