The mission of the Church of the Holy Apostles is to nurture a sacred community that embraces all, inspires faith, and creates leaders who reach out in Christian service.We welcome those who are single, married, divorced, partnered, LGBT, filthy rich, dirt poor, or struggle to speak English. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, thin as a rake or could afford to lose a few pounds. We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or can’t carry a tune in a stainless steel bucket. You’re welcome here if you’re ‘just browsing,’ just woke up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury or haven’t been in church since little Jack’s baptism or Uncle Fred’s funeral. We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up far too fast. We welcome soccer moms and football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians and junk food eaters. We welcome those who are addicted – whether in recovery or not. We welcome you if you’re having problems, you’re down in the dumps, or are suffering in body, mind or spirit. We extend an especially warm welcome to those who don’t like ‘organized religion’ (don’t worry, we’re not that organized.) If you blew all your money on the horses, you’re welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work or can’t work, can’t spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church. We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throat as a kid, or got lost finding the beltway off I-95 and ended up here by mistake. We welcome tourists and locals, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts and hardened ones … and you!

8am - Spoken Mass
Our early service is an often intimate gathering, sharing the Holy Eucharist in a Rite II service that allows participants to focus contemplatively on the beautiful words and rituals of the Episcopal Church in the Book of Common Prayer, and leave refreshed and nourished with all of Sunday left ahead of them.
9:30am - Sunday School & Youth Group
At Holy Apostles we know that growing up isn't easy, but we believe that developing a strong spiritual life in a young person alongside their body and mind will help them to become confident, compassionate, and joyous. Sunday School & Youth Group meet their group leaders in the fellowship hall downstairs, children under the age of four will have activities and games provided in our nursery.
10:30am - Family Service with Choir & Children's Chapel
Our later service couples a joyful energy with our deep traditions as our choir leads the congregation in a wide array of beautiful music. Children are invited during the reading of scripture to experience worship in our Children's Chapel before returning for holy communion. Our nursery is available between 9:15am and 11:45am every Sunday so that parent's can participate in Adult Education and Worship.
