Serving God's People for over 130 years! 


Welcome to Atonement

Welcome to the Church of the Atonement, an Episcopal church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. For more than 130 years, Atonement has been a witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our Edgewater neighborhood and in the wider community. Today, we continue in that witness as an active, visionary, and inclusive congregation that serves God through daily prayer and worship, the practice of lifelong Christian learning, and ministries of outreach and justice. 


Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your walk of faith, you are most welcome here. Your presence, your faith, your prayers, and your questions are wanted here. Your gifts and your energy are needed here. You are invited to come and see what God has in mind for you here.

Mass of Thanksgiving


Atonement will hold a special Mass of Thanksgiving on Thu., Nov. 24 at 10 a.m. The Rev’d Tom Scott will be preaching. Come feed yourself spiritually before feasting on your Thanksgiving meal. This service will not be streamed on YouTube.

Understanding the prophecies:
A two-part series


Please join us in the Elizabethan Room on Sun., Nov. 27 at 10 a.m. for a forum led by Kenneth Seeskin on Jewish concepts of prophecy. Advent is a time when Christians are reminded of prophecies about the coming of the Messiah. Our understanding of prophecy is deeply grounded in the traditions of ancient Israel and Judaism. Seeskin, a professor emeritus of Philosophy, Jewish Studies, and Religious Studies at Northwestern University, will help us gain deeper understanding of those traditions. Plan to join us next week for the conclusion of this series.

Advent Lessons & Carols

Mark your calendars for Sun., Dec. 4 at 5 p.m. when we host our Service of Lessons and Carols. This annual tradition will feature music by MacMillan, Vaughan Williams, Weir, Dunphy, Howells, Wood, and Manz.
