Holy Comforter Church
Founded in 1893, Holy Comforter Episcopal Church, in the heart of Atlanta, seeks to restore all people to unity with God & with each other. Call us, email us, or visit us and join us for worship.
We are proud to be a unique worshiping community full of people who are fully human. As an Episcopal Church, our worship derives largely from the Book of Common Prayer. We love that our worship and our community are welcoming, warm, open, fluid, sometimes loud, and always interesting. We laugh a lot. Not all of us are Episcopalians and not all of us believe the exact same things, but we work to love each other unconditionally. Sometimes we are really good at it and sometimes we aren't. But we always do this work together and would love to welcome you into this Christian community. Even if you don't know your way around the Book of Common Prayer, someone will help you find your way through worship. Together we can learn how to be better humans and better Christians.
About 60% of this congregation lives with mental illness and all of us participate in the life of this community. You are welcome to join us for Wednesday Evening Worship service and community dinner - worship at 6:30pm (dinner following) or for Holy Eucharist on Sundays at 10:30 am. We also gather for the Friendship Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Friendship Center is a community supported day program for people living with severe and chronic mental illness. You can learn more about the Friendship center on their website: friendshipcenter-atlanta.org
Support for the Friendship Center and Holy Comforter comes from the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta and various parishes and foundations. Almost 50% of our support comes from individuals like you! Thank You!
