“This is the Lord’s house, home of all God’s people, school for the faithful, refuge for the sinner, rest for the pilgrim, haven for the weary. All find a welcome.”

~ Hymn “We the Lord’s People”

We value one another. We have fun together.

~ we give strength and comfort to one another in times of difficulty and rejoice together in times of good fortune and grace.

There is more grace in the search for meaning than in absolute certainty.

~ we believe Jesus wants us to use use our minds, to work for justice, and to proclaim God’s love for all people.

All Are Welcome

 

St. Dunstan’s is a progressive Episcopal church that strives to be a place of welcome, refuge, prayer, learning, and challenge.

We are much more than a neighborhood church.

We are located in an Atlanta neighborhood (that borders Buckhead and Sandy Springs), but we are much more than a neighborhood church.  We have members who come to us from Vinings, Smyrna, Marietta, Mableton, Kennesaw, Midtown, Roswell, and Spaghetti Junction. Many of our parishioners drive by other Episcopal churches to get to us.

We think that’s because we offer something special. 



At St. Dunstan’s you will find an intimate, caring community that finds more grace in the search for meaning than absolute certainty.  We invite all people to join us around God’s altar, and to receive nourishment and strength through the body and blood of Christ at the Eucharist.

We value good liturgy and music, strong preaching, and invigorating Christian education for all ages. We believe we are called to be stewards of God’s creation and cherish the beauty of the land that surrounds us.

We also value one another. We give each other strength and comfort in times of difficulty and rejoice together in times of good fortune and grace.  We enjoy having fun together.

The words from another hymn, “Let Us Build a House,” express it well:
“Let us build a house where hands will reach beyond the wood and stone to heal and strengthen, serve and teach, and live the Word they’ve known. Here the outcast and the stranger bear the image of God’s face: let this house proclaim from floor to rafter: All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place.”

We invite you to join us!

We value questions and doubts,

and believe that when these are accompanied by curiosity and courage, a deepening of faith occurs.

We are rooted by our traditions,

engaged by our present, and open to God’s calling us into the future.

We believe the Church is called to be an inclusive community,

and we strive to respond faithfully to that call.
