Yes, we’re part of that Episcopal Church!
Did Bishop Michael Curry catch your attention during the Royal Wedding, or in the media recently? We’re proud that he’s our presiding bishop… and his message about the liberating and life-giving love of God is the same one you’ll encounter in the company of the Episcopal Church here in the Pemi-Baker Valley. With the Church of the Holy Spirit, Plymouth, we welcome you to the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement. Come and see!
Rector’s Messages. We have recently added messages written by Kelly Sundberg Seaman to our website! Click the tab above to the right titled “Rector’s Messages” to view them by month.
We are a plucky, dedicated group seeking to live in, with, and through Christ in all that we are and do while caring for those in our small town of Ashland, the geographical center of New Hampshire and the gateway to both the Lakes region to our east and the White Mountains to our north.
We are currently actively discerning what it means to be an Episcopal Christian in both a multi-faith and secular world as well as a mission church in the 21st century situated in a town with significant social needs and by extension outreach opportunities. We have a growing partnership with the people of the Church of the Holy Spirit, Plymouth. In January, 2018, we welcomed the priest we called together to serve as Rector, Vicar, and Episcopal Chaplain to Plymouth State University.
We have been a congregation for 160 years (actually predating the founding of our town), and worship in a historically protected and quite beautiful church building.
We are moving ahead determined and eager to engage in another 160 years (and beyond) as a regional spiritual center where a true and open welcoming is the rule not the exception. Our mission focus is food, with a focus on doing what we can to help provide food for area schoolchildren in need. We are a healthy mix of progressive, creative, and more traditional theologians and thinkers, seasonal attendees and regular attendees, young and young at heart.
