Welcome to the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas
The Episcopal Church is home to about 11,000 people in 44 congregations in cities and towns across eastern Kansas. Our congregations make up our diocese, and our diocese is part of the wider Episcopal Church, which in turn is part of a larger, global community of Christians in the Anglican Communion.
In the Episcopal Church there is room for your questions about God, faith and the church. There’s a place for you here.
You are welcome to worship at any of the congregations of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas. Inside the doors of our churches -- some large, some small -- you will find services that offer beauty, warmth and a sense of community.
You can find an Episcopal church near you in eastern Kansas by using the "Find a Congregation" drop-down menu at left, or to see a list of cities where there is an Episcopal church, please click >>HERE.

Advent and Christmas
Advent is the period that leads up to Christmas and includes the four Sundays before Dec. 25. This year is begins on Nov. 27 and runs through Dec. 24.
When you visit an Episcopal church in the next few weeks, you likely will see an Advent wreath – a ring that includes four candles (purple or blue) and often some seasonal greenery. A candle is lighted each week of Advent, to mark the coming of the true Light, Jesus, when we celebrate his birth at Christmas.
Advent is a time of preparation, to make ourselves ready to receive the message of love, peace and life that Jesus brings. In churches you may see some greenery, but things like Christmas carols come later. In the Episcpal Church, we celebrate Christmas beginning with Christmas Eve services, and for 12 days afterward.
Whether you are searching for a place of quiet contemplation during Advent, or a place to celebrate the festival of Christmas, the Episcopal churches in eastern Kansas welcome you. You can find a church by clicking on the drop-down menu at the left, or by clicking >>HERE.
