Yeocomico Church

During these shortest days and longest nights of the year, Cople Parish is offering a service that is for everyone, but especially for those who struggle to find the joy of the Advent and Christmas seasons. During the service, we light candles and focus on our personal needs in an atmosphere of quiet contemplation. 

There are those who come to a Blue Christmas Service because they are trying to cope with the death of a loved one. Others are grieving over the loss of a job, the loss of their health or vitality, the loss of a dear pet, their change to empty nesters, or their addictive behaviors either past or present and the pain they have caused others. Some find they experience during this time of year, a malaise of the spirit and "Joy to the World' is so very hard to capture. This gentle space and time helps us to remember that there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

To celebrate the Feast of Lights as Epiphany draws near we will be holding a service on JAN 6th, to celebrate the coming of the Magi and the Light of Christ.

Who are we?

Cople Episcopal Parish is a warm, welcoming iparish that worships in different church buildings on Sunday mornings. Each of our buildings of worship have different histories and characteristics, yet at the same time, we are one parish:  one in community, one in service,  one in celebration of God's good gifts.

We are a historic parish, founded in 1664, and our worship and spirituality are deeply rooted in classic Christianity, and at the same time we are focused on serving those in need and loving one another.

We are an inclusive community of faith, living out God's love with each other, our community, and the word through worship, outreach, spiritual formation, and fellowship.We welcome all, without exception.

Our services include readings from the Bible, prayer, a sermon, and music. Our guide for worship is the Book of Common Prayer (Prayer Book for short), which expresses our reverence, values, and what we hold in common. At most Sunday services, we offer the bread and wine of Holy Communion.This is the central event in Episcopal worship, and with Baptism, expresses our belief in God's enduring love and presence in the world.

We generally gather for fellowship and refreshments, what we call Coffee Hour, following the Sunday morning service. Coffee Hour is an important time to meet new people, to greet old friends, to catch up over a cup of coffee, and engage in warm conversation.

On Sunday there is an early 9 am service in Tidwells at St. James Church, followed by a later, 11 am service in the Kinsale area at Yeocomico Church. The third church building, Nomini Church, is located in the Mt. Holly area and is used a few times a year (Christmas, Holy Week, 5th Sundays). On these occasions we worship as one gathered church.
