Welcome to St. Bride's Church (Episcopal/Anglican)
Thank you for looking at our website! We hope this will give you an idea of who we are and what is our purpose. We invite you to join us.
Saint Bride's is the Anglo-Catholic parish in southern Virginia. This means that we are fully Anglican (from the Church of England), yet follow the theology and liturgy of the Catholic Revival in the Church of England, known as the Oxford Movement. Every Sunday we offer a simple Low Mass and a High Mass (with incense, chanting, classical yet singable music with pipe organ). We have a statue of Our Lady of Walsingham from England (the first Shrine to a vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary, ca. 1061) with votive candles. We also say the Angelus at the end of every Mass, and have a Rosary Group.
Our members include former Roman Catholics, Congregationalists, Methodists, Baptists and Presbyterians as well as life-long Episcopalians. They may have attended Anglo-Catholic services on vacation or while in the military and felt drawn to the beautiful liturgy. St. Bride's provides a common tread in the expression of strong traditional liturgy, Bible based teaching and a small church experience.
This is a wonderful and warm parish to live out a traditional Anglican life as a disciple of Jesus Christ, in the fullness of the Catholic Faith.
Childcare is provided at both Masses. Join us this Sunday!

We continue to pray for a priest to be our spiritual guide and leader. Please join us in praying the St. Bride's Prayer below:
Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, sustain the patience and unity with which you have blessed us. Grant us wisdom to discern your will in our search for a priest who will guide and direct us in our spiritual life, as we witness to the traditional expression of the Christian faith. All this we ask through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
