Aquia Episcopal Church

Aquia Episcopal Church

Built in 1757, Aquia Episcopal Church in Stafford, VA is a welcoming church for people of all ages and backgrounds as we grow closer to our Lord and Savior. Our church is located in the Fredericksburg community.

We joyfully respond to the Love, Grace, and Fellowship of God, the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. At work in our midst, we celebrate His Presence by Sharing His Abundance and Proclaiming His word throughout the world.



Aquia Church will reopen its doors for worship in our historic church building starting on this Sunday, May 30 (Memorial Day weekend), with in-person worship services indoors at 10:30 a.m. and at 4:00 p.m. There will be no attendance limits, mask-wearing will be encouraged for everyone 5 years old and above but not required, and the church will continue to provide masks and hand-sanitizer for those desiring them. Congregational singing will be permitted once again. Communion will still be served with wafers only. The south transept of the historic church (the south ‘wing’ on the side with the pulpit) will be reserved for those who want to sit alongside others wearing masks; everyone sitting in the south transept will be expected to wear masks. Opportunities for fellowship and refreshments in the great hall before or after indoor worship services will be added gradually but not immediately.

The Sunday 7:30 a.m. virtual/electronic worship service over Facebook Live will remain in place for the time being, with an eventual return to an in-person service at 7:30 a.m. 

Also, we shall return to offering Sunday school in person on the lower level of the Christian Formation and Fellowship Building 9:30—10:15 a.m. for only June 6 & 13, which are the final two Sundays for the current Sunday school year; and we might be able to offer a Sunday school simulcast over Zoom for those two Sundays.

In addition, ministry groups desiring to resume their usual activities indoors are permitted do so starting on Tuesday, June 1. Ministry group leaders and members should be in touch with each other in order to set their schedules, with group leaders contacting the church office right away about their plans.
