Missions

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.
