All Are Welcome,
No Exceptions

Emmanuel Episcopal Church is a thriving, engaged, and creative parish.

Inclement Weather Policy

Emmanuel follows the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) system regarding closings for inclement weather. If ACPS are closed, then Emmanuel is closed as well. All day and evening church activities and meetings are cancelled. This applies to weekdays and weekends. If ACPS have a late opening or an early closing then we will follow their lead as well.

This inclement weather policy includes the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Sunday services as well. . In the event of a Sunday closing, an e-mail will be sent to all who currently receive the weekly e-news; and the closure will be placed on the website as well. 


We work to:

Worship With Us
Sundays at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.

On any given Sunday you may see young families with children, retirees, singles, and teenagers. Some are life-long Episcopalians, others grew up in different faith traditions, and still others grew up without any church background at all. What we have in common is a desire to grow in our knowledge and love of God and to enter into an ever-deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.

Come join us in the pews anytime—in person or online!
