Who We Are

St Albans is a mid-sized parish, traditional liturgy based on Rite II found in the 1979 Episcopal Book of Common Prayer with the use of outside sources and progressive ideas. We are a diverse parish with ties to the refugee community having members from both the Karen and Chaldean Communities. We are also multi-generational with something for all ages. Our church's identity is tied to community outreach. We work with the Episcopal Refugee Network, run a Refugee Food Pantry on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Offer classes for English as a second language, provide tutoring and mentoring for school aged children, minister to the homeless in Wells Park once a month. We have an active and thriving Sunday School and Children's Choir, a small but mighty ECW and partner with other like minded churches in El Cajon including First Presbyterian, First United Methodist, St John's Lutheran and Iglesia de JesuChristo Dios es Amour

Our Services

What are services like?
Worship at Saint Alban’s is eucharistic-centered following the Book of Common Prayer (1979). Sunday morning services are more traditional and include singing hymns, scripture readings, children and adult sermons and Holy Communion. Incense may be used on the major feast days. Midweek services are brief, spoken and informal – more like sitting around the fire place in a friend’s home. The monthly Wells Park service ministered by the Welcome Church is the least formal and includes Holy Communion. All are welcome to come as you are and to be fed spiritually by the Lord through his Word and at his table.

What is the community like?
Diverse - a mixture of ages and cultures. Warm, welcoming, friendly and inclusive.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Everyone is welcome at St Albans - We welcome the faithful, the seeker, the curious and the doubter, for God's embrace is wide and God's love and salvation are for All!
