Please consider this to be an invitation to you to come worship with us and share our fellowship joyfully praising Christ in a caring and compassionate family of Christians.
As we prepare to celebrate our 175th year as a parish, we are appreciative of our rich heritage and tradition but we are far more focused on where we are going than where we have been. The wisdom of many years serves as the foundation for our leap of faith into the future.
During the past year we have undergone the process of calling a new rector for our parish and after prayerfully seeking God’s will to guide us in this journey He has led us to an exciting conclusion. The Rev. Nicholas Hull has accepted our call to be our next rector! Fr. Nick comes to us from Trinity Episcopal Church in Columbus Georgia where he has served as curate for the past two years. He is a graduate of The University of the South: Sewanee and received his M.Div. from Virginia Seminary in 2014. Fr. Nick will begin his tenure this fall accompanied by his wife Leandra Burke and their pet dogs Bean and Peanut. We know our future will be filled with great promise and unlimited opportunity.
Christ Episcopal Church is very pleased to welcome their new minister, The Reverend Nicholas Hull. A graduate of the University of The South and The Virginia Theological Seminary, Reverend Hull has interned in Atlanta, Dalton, Georgia and Washington, DC. He and his wife, Leandra, are avid out - door enthusiasts and are very excited about the many opportunities and events in our area. Reverend Hull's first services in Martinsville were held on October 16th.
