Jamestown and Its Church: A Nation's First Parish

December 3, 2006

Organized in 1607 as part of the emerging English colony, the Jamestown Church became the first Protestant congregation to endure in the New World — the parish to which the Episcopal Church traces its origins in the Americas. The 400th anniversary of these beginnings will be marked in spring 2007 with civic and religious observances, the advent of which invites Episcopalians to learn more about the history and heritage of their unique faith tradition.
