We strive to serve God and God's People in Syracuse, NY
Welcome to St. Alban's Episcopal Church, Syracuse.

Each Sunday we gather for Holy Communion at 9:30, with social time following at coffee hour. Before the service Mother Julie leads Bible Study at 8:30 a.m. There are many opportunities to be involved, whether it is being part of the service, bringing cookies to coffee hour, or participating in community outreach.
St. Alban’s is a progressive, inclusive congregation. We welcome everyone regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, or sexual orientation. While many members of our congregation were raised in the Episcopal Church, others have joined us from other denominations. If you are curious about what it means to be an Episcopalian, we would be more than happy to answer your questions.
Commitment to Our Neighbors
Our congregation places a high value on being part of the community in which we are located. Our building is used by three Neighborhood Watch groups, various 12 Step groups, and we are known as the church where you can get your taxes done for free by an IRS trained volunteer.
We serve God and God's people.
Furthermore, we engage in a number of outreach initiatives to support organizations working in the community, . The issues on which we focus most of our attention are Food Justice and Refugee Assistance. Throughout the year we participate in a number of outreach activities focused on these two issues, including cooking food and making sandwiches at the church twice a month, volunteering at a food bank on Syracuse’s south side and collecting food for local food banks, volunteering at food banks and collecting items for newly arrived refugee families.
