Originally established as the African Church, the African Episcopal Church of St. Thomas was founded in 1792 as the first black Episcopal church in the USA. Now in its 227th year, this vibrant ministry flourishes as an open, Christ-centered community of faith where the Gospel is taught, lived and spread.
