AN INVITING CHURCH
celebrating God's love at work in our lives and in the world

Valuing scripture, tradition and reason as the foundation of our faith, Eastern Shore Chapel is a welcoming church in the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia. We seek to be conduits of God's healing and restoration, working toward openness and understanding, justice, and healing and wholeness of life for all people.

 

Our Virginia Beach Episcopal Church welcomes everyone into the full life and ministry of the church. If you're looking for a Spirit-filled, Christ-centered community where you can grow in your faith and relationship with Jesus, you'll feel right at home in our congregation.
