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.

Forum: Facing Islamophobia

Join us Sun., Dec. 3 at 10 a.m. in the Elizabethan Room for our next parish forum. How can we unpack “Islamophobia” that has once again become headline news?  In the Abrahamic tradition, Islam shares more with Christianity than sets it apart, so if God’s love and compassion for all humanity unites us, why does Islam disturb us?  This Forum will explore what it means to be a Muslim, tenants of faith that we share, and things on which we diverge. We’ll conclude by asking, if Islam is not a problem, where does our phobia come from?
