Sunday Worship in Austin
The Austin Convocation of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas welcomes YOU! We are doing great things in diverse worshiping communities, and they are waiting to worship with you on Sunday, July 8, 2018. Below you will find offerings in all shapes, sizes, locations, and rites. Each church has prepared a description of itself in its own words, and we invite you find one that speaks to you. Please don’t be dismayed at the distances — some of our newest church plants are a little further out but have much to offer and share. We’ve got hidden gems all over the city.
