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

The diocese is offering online worship opportunities for the duration of this public health crisis
