The Anglican Church of the Valley is a welcoming, Bible-based, Protestant Christian church that continues the faith, liturgy and traditions of the Anglican Communion, a worldwide group of churches with roots in the Church of England. It is a member of the Anglican Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic, a diocese of the Anglican Church in North America [ACNA]. We use the beautiful new ACNA 2019 Book of Common Prayer with traditional hymns from the 1982 Hymnal..

During the first months of the COVID crisis, the Rev. Alan Lipscomb recorded prayers, Scriptural readings and a homily so that members and friends might digitally share a short time with each other and God each week. He continued this weekly video for several months after services were resumed - and has created them on special occasions and when the service had to be cancelled for other reasons.
We worship in accordance with the Anglican Church of North America’s 2019 Book of Common Prayer. Our service is traditional and vibrant, featuring hymn singing, scripture readings, scripture based preaching and a reverent celebration of the Lord’s Supper where we fulfill Jesus command to “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you: Do this in remembrance of me.” (Matt. 26:26, 1 Cor. 11:24) We practice open communion, so any baptized Christian who repents of their sins and recognizes Christ’s true presence in the sacrament is welcome at the Lord’s Table. We print the entire service in our worship aid each Sunday, so it is easy for visitors to follow along.
The Anglican Church of the Valley holds regular Sunday worship services at the beautiful and historic Temple House of Israel, 15 North Market Street, in Staunton, Virginia. The Temple is in the block immediately to the North of the Stonewall Jackson Hotel and the American Shakespeare Center. We look forward to your visit. If you need help finding us call 540-466-8484.
The Anglican Church of the Valley is now holding services at the Temple House of Israel 11 a.m. Sundays. Sunday School will not be held for the time being. In accord with governmental regulations, we are taking a number of steps to insure the safety of those present. For details on the precautions, please click here. Services will be in the Community Room at the Temple.
We are a community of traditionally minded Christians who are pleased to be able to worship in the Temple House of Israel Synagogue which always serves to remind us of our continuity with the faithful of past ages. We gather at 10 am on Sunday mornings for an Adult Study Group followed by a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 11.
We are a close knit and welcoming community, with many retired clergy, military and lawyers in our
midst. We look out for each other and are always ready to lend a helping hand in times of difficulty or
crisis. I hope you will consider paying us a visit and get to know us better.
