Holy Comforter is a welcoming, worshiping community committed to living Christ’s unconditional love through fellowship, service, and kindness. We are a compassionate, affirming, and loving community.

WHAT IS THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH - The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which is a group of churches across the globe with historic roots in The Church of England. The word Episcopal simply means “bishop”, affirming that we have bishops as spiritual leaders. We are neither Catholic nor Protestant, but incorporate elements of both. One of the distinct elements of Anglican Churches is The Book of Common Prayer, which shapes the way we pray and worship together in our communities.

Thank you for visiting The Episcopal Church of the Holy Comforter in the heart of Burlington, North Carolina. HC has a long, inspired history. For over 150 years, our parish has been an important part of the community with a deep sense of service and outreach to all. God’s Love is the heart of the community, the center of the Church, and the message of the Cross. Love for our God, Love for our neighbor and Love for ourselves will pour out of us when we tap into the love that God has for us. We seek to be rooted and grounded in the Love and Grace of God that is in Christ Jesus, to preach Christ Crucified with our feet and hands as much as with our mouths, to live sacramental lives, and to engage with each other and our neighbors practically, with love in our hearts.

Holy Comforter is compassionate: We believe that God cares deeply for all human beings, and that all have sacred dignity. We do acts of social justice, not because they are trendy, but because they are how we live out God’s call on our lives in the world.

Holy Comforter is affirming: If you’re wondering if there is anything that can exclude you from God’s love or being accepted as you are in this community, the answer is no. We all have things that make us unique: race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, etc. We value your uniqueness and want to celebrate that with you.

Holy Comforter is a loving community: We don’t always get it right. We sometimes disagree. But even in those moments, we choose to love each other. Jesus told us to love the Lord our God with all our hearts and to love our neighbors as ourselves. We strive to live out this commandment.
