Who we are

We are a community of Christians on a faith journey together. As part of that journey we worship, study,enjoy each others' company, and help others. We would welcome your energy, curiosity, and enthusiasm. Bring them all and join us. We worship together on Sunday mornings at 8 and 10 am.

The 10 am service and the following adult forum are accompanied by Sunday School and child care. We have a glorious choir and there is much singing and participation in the service. We use the Book of Common Prayer.

A core Resurrection commitment is outreach to help others. On the last Saturday of every month many in the congregation join together to distribute food to the hungry as part of the ALIVE! ministry in Alexandria. We bag groceries, distribute snacks and drinks to waiting people, read books to children, and offer various services. We invite you to help us. Come between 8 am and 9 am for the morning.

We also participate in VOICE, a nonpartisan coalition of some 50 faith communities and groups that are working together in northern Virginia to bring justice into the public arena. We have participated in events to hold banks accountable for questionable lending practices and to press for creation of affordable housing as a public policy. We hope to assist in organizing Alexandria faith communities to support its local issues.

Resurrection has always been on the cutting edge of social justice. We assisted in establishing community resources to help low income people with housing and rehabilitation such as Carpenter's Shelter and Community Lodgings. We welcomed women as ordained priests long before the Episcopal church did as a whole.  We are in a Diocese that blesses gay anad lesbian unions.

 We warmly invite you to join us.
