About Us

Our Mission:  To be a joyful Christian community in the Episcopal tradition, striving to be in relationship to God and each other as Christ has taught us, ever trying to sense and to serve God’s plan with great love.

Our History: Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill was established in 1941 by the Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS). The Very Rev. Alexander C. Zabriskie, then Dean of VTS, served as the first rector. The Rev. Robert F. Gibson, Professor of Church History (and later Bishop of Virginia) served as Priest-in-Charge. Services were held in the historic Immanuel Chapel on the seminary campus.
