  • My friend and I had a chance to visit love ones at the Arlington Cemetery. I was surprised to see the grave site of Kennedy, Megar Evers and many more.  more »

  • [FULL DISCLOSURE: I am a member of this church, but I will confine my review to the Historic Church and grounds. I date this as having "visited" in Oct of 2016, since that was my only option.] If you ...  more »

  • Friendly people, lovely music, inspiring sermon.
  • The Falls Church Episcopal is a warm, welcoming parish with incredible passion for Christ, community, and service. It is also a fascinating mix of history and new energy. While the church predates the City, the congregation is the best kind of start-up. After a more conservative faction of the church (nationally and locally) left to join the Anglican church, the Falls Church Episcopal finds itself with a dedicated group of progressive, inclusive, joy-filled members. My wife and I (and 2 year old son) joined the church about a year and a half ago. I tend to be introverted, but from day one, I was welcomed and immediately plugged in. John Ohmer is the pastor, and he is real power in the pulpit. The Virginia Diocese sent us a rock star to help restart the church, and we feel fortunate every day. His theology is inspired and stimulating, his counsel is wise and comforting, and he is simply a fun guy. One more thing - the coffee hour is legendary. It's worth trying out the church on a Sunday even just for the banquet that's provided after.
  • In the summer of 2013 my family and I were welcomed into The Falls Church Episcopal as new arrivals from Arizona. In fact, our Episcopal community in Phoenix recommended that we specifically seek this community out. Something special was happening there that we might want to be a part of, we were told. Just go check it out. And so we arrived over Memorial Day, 2013, in the historic church, which was less than half full. After getting our first, satisfying taste of a John Ohmer sermon -- plain-spoken, humble, wise and funny -- we stayed for coffee hour, which grew to coffee 90 minutes. We hadn't even moved here yet (we were just in town house hunting at this point), but made friends whom we keep today. Our kids met friends their age, too (and learned the virtues of free food at coffee hour!). We went back to Arizona that May, contented in the knowledge that we had found both a physical home and a spiritual home on our brief visit. By the time we'd returned permanently to Falls Church in August, we came back to our two homes, and have been nestled in ever since. Our kids have joined the Falls Churchlings choir group, and Rhian and I help out how we can in this close-knit, family-friendly spiritual community. All the while, the community has grown and grown, from dozens to hundreds of congregants, young and old, newborn to octogenarian. Our Phoenix priest was right: Something special is happening here, and we do want to be a part of it. We're so grateful we checked it out.
  • Great church!
  • The parish also talks about how they lost their appeal to the supreme court to be able to keep their property, even though they have jumped ship and joined the Anglican Church of Nigeria.
