New name, same loving God

The Episcopal Church of North Texas is a new name for this diocese of The Episcopal Church that since 1983 has been the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. Our name has changed but our loving, liberating, life giving God has not.

Doing church differently

Our congregations are returning to in person worship, so the diocese is now featuring the live streamed services of our congregations.

Greetings from The Episcopal Church in North Texas

The Episcopal Church in North Texas and the entire Episcopal Church, welcomes you in the name of Jesus Christ.

We are a welcoming and affirming group of local Christian communities in and around the Fort Worth area who are united with The Episcopal Church, a province of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and a part of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.

We pray that you will be inspired to learn more about The Episcopal Church. You might just be surprised at what you find.

When you are ready, we would love for you to visit one of our congregations.

Be alert, be calm, and take precautions against the coronavirus

Evangelism Intiative launched

For the unchurched, the dechurched, those hurt by the church, those told God hates them.
