St. Bede Episcopal Church welcomes you! We love God, serve every person, and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. We nurture spiritual growth in our faith community and share our passion for Outreach with the greater community. Come and help us discover where God is leading us. Whatever your religious background and however you have found us, ALL ARE WELCOME!
We at St. Bede's exercise our Freedom by the ways we adapt the Traditions of the Larger Church to the Needs and Circumstances of the Place and Community where God has Planted us. St. Bede's is an Organic Part of the Episcopal Church and of the Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church is made up of regional Dioceses that guide large clusters of Congregations and Mission churches like ours.
Our regional leadership comes from Bishop Melissa Skelton as we are a part of the Diocese of Olympia, named after the City where it was first established (though its offices are now in Seattle). Bishop Skelton envisions a church that is a safe and authentic community in which to explore God's infinite goodness and grace as revealed in the life and continuing revelation of Jesus Christ.
We at St. Bede's are exceptional in that we are a Mission Church, with a special, closer relationship to the Diocese and Bishop.
