In the Episcopal Church, a bishop visits each church in the diocese at least once every three years to worship together, support the ministry of the congregation, and form relationships. Churches will be contacted individually to schedule and coordinate a visitation.
Our Provisional Bishop is with us for one year on a half-time basis. She is visiting as many congregations as her limited schedule will allow. If there is a service or event happening at your church separate from a Sunday morning, that may be another opportunity for a “visitation”.
