Who We Are

Welcome to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church – we are so glad that you are here! Since the 1870’s, God has gathered a beloved community of Jesus to worship and serve here, and where all are welcomed. We are committed to provide a holy place for worship, Christian Formation for all ages that is compelling and life-giving, opportunities to reach out in love for those in need, and an enthusiastic hope that all who call St. Mary’s their spiritual home can participate in every area of our common life in Christ. The spirit of St. Mary’s is grounded in a deep sense of gratitude for God’s goodness and love. We give thanks for you and for your life, and we are grateful to God for the opportunity to welcome you!

St. Mary’s Church, Dover Parish in the Diocese of Virginia, is a community of faith nestled in the countryside of Goochland County, just west of Richmond. We come from many different backgrounds and many different places to worship God in one of the most peaceful settings one can imagine.

Come for a visit or join us as a new member of our congregation. If you want to know more about us, feel free to reach out to our clergy.
