The Episcopal Church of New Hampshire comprises 48 congregations from Colebrook to Nashua, Claremont to Portsmouth. We are discovering God's mission in the world and listening to what God calls us to challenge and confront anew. We do this work in churches, communities, forests, on mountaintops, and on the sea.
Our purpose is to claim the power of God's love in our life - in worship, learning, and service - as we share the love and joy of Jesus Christ with others.
We invite you to explore the information on our website and to reach out to us with any questions!
Our Mission Priorities
The Episcopal Church of New Hampshire abides and grows in the True Vine who is Jesus Christ (John 15). Living in the Vine, we seek to follow God’s call to the mission of restoring the world. Vines are agile, strong and curious. Vines slowly and steadily seek where they can thrive. And then, they bear fruit. We have discerned Four Mission Priorities, which provide a trellis where we hope to flourish and “Tend the Vine” – this is our life in Christ.
Our Four Mission Priorities:
Congregational and Mission Vitality -- developing the ability of congregations to grow, prosper and extend their ministries,
Investing in Leadership -- making investments in the development of both lay and ordained leadership
Support of Ministry to Children, Youth, Families and Young Adults -- supporting the children of our parishes, communities and state
Advocacy for Upholding the Dignity of Every Human Being and Care for the Creation --acting as advocates and teaching others to lend their voices to this work.
