Saint John’s Concord is an Episcopal Church. The Episcopal Church in the United States is considered a Protestant church, although you may find our worship style similar to the Roman Catholic Church. Our presiding bishop is Michael Bruce Curry, the first African-American bishop to serve in that position.
The Episcopal Church was founded after the Revolutionary War, when the church was separated from the Anglican Church. Our style of worship is a liturgy-style. Our service styles can vary but are always guided by our Book of Common Prayer and supplemental liturgies.
All are welcome to worship and serve in our church. Women and members of LGBT community can be ordained to the priesthood. In 2015, same-sex marriages can be performed and blessed in the Episcopal Church.
