St. Gabriel's Episcopal Church in Douglassville

"Learning and Doing the Work of Jesus"

We seek to "learn and do the work of Jesus" that lives might be transformed through the love of Christ.  We care for children at our Good Shepherd Learning Center, Sunday School and Youth Groups. We help care for senior citizens at the Keystone Villa. We care for community groups like AA, Al-Anon, Boy/Girl & Venture Scouts, and more. We care for the people we serve through the ministry of Hopewell Love. We are the church that has worshiped in and served the Douglassville area since 1720, celebrating 300 years in 2020!

We believe God loves you whoever you are!

All are welcome at St. Gabriel’s, regardless of race, class, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. Come in and look around.

Come and visit us anytime for worship and other activities.

WE ARE PART OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH, USA, and entering an exciting time 
re-imagining our church denomination (click here) and our diocese (click here for info about our Bishop Search!)
