The Orthodox Christian Community of Edenton, North Carolina Welcomes You to St. George's Orthodox Church!

Holy Pentecost

Countdown to Holy Pentecost and the Decent of the Holy Spirit!


Welcome! We love visitors! We warmly welcome you to join us for a service. In the meantime, explore our About Orthodoxy page for more information on Orthodox Christianity.

St. George's Orthodox Church is a member of the Orthodox Church of America operating under the Diocese of the South.

Did you know that Orthodoxy predates all other forms of Christianity? Founded on the Day of Holy Pentecost, 50 days after the Holy Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, Orthodox Christianity dates back to approximately 33 AD! The general structure and many particulars of the Divine Liturgy have remained unchanged since the time of the early Church. The description provided by St. Justin the Philosopher and Martyr in the middle of the second century is still a good summary of our Eucharistic Liturgy. St. Justin's Weekly Worship of the Christians is located in the Supplemental file of About Orthodoxy.

 Our Parish is located in historic Edenton in Eastern North Carolina on the Chowan River and Albemarle Sound. Whether you are a local resident or a visitor to the area, we invite you to come out and take part in our services, where you will experience how the Apostles and Saints worshipped nearly 2000 years ago.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to embrace the fullness of the Orthodox faith; encourage the dicipleship of believers, equip the faithful for ministry, and evangelize to those unfamiliar with the Good News.

The Very Reverend Thomas Moore Visits St. George's

The Very Reverend Thomas Moore, Dean of the Carolina Deanery, visited St. George's Orthodox Church December 7-8, 2018. This was his first visit since St. George’s took possession of the former St. John the Evangelist Church as its new home. After a short Vesper service on Friday evening, which demonstrated the excellent acoustics inside the St. George nave, parishioners accompanied Fr. Moore and St. George’s resident priest, Rev. Dr. Benedict Churchill, to a dinner held at the Nothin Fancy Café in Edenton, North Carolina. The potential for the Carolina Deanery to hold its annual retreat in Edenton was discussed. Saturday morning, Fr. Moore visited St. George’s again, this time to get a better view of the Church in the daylight. Fathers Moore and Benedict, along with several parishioners then met at the Edenton Coffee House for coffee and pastries before Fr. Moore left to continue his visits to other churches in his jurisdiction. It was a pleasurable and memorable experience for all, and parishioners are waiting with eager anticipation to learn if the Carolina Deanery will hold its upcoming retreat in Edenton.   



The Nicene Creed Summarizes What Orthodox Christians Believe

 I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages. Light of light; true God of true God; begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by Whom all things were made; Who for us men and for our salvation came down from Heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man. And He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried. And the third day He arose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; Whose Kingdom shall have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spoke by the prophets. In one Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Experience Orthodox Christianity


Orthodox Christianity differs from Western Christianity in a number of ways: We are Catholic, but not Roman. We are Orthodox, but not Jewish. We are not Protestant, but the Bible came from us. We are not denominational, but pre-denominational. Orthodox Christianity is the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church as practiced by the early Christians


The Carolinas Denery Perform Concert at St George's in Edenton

The show was co-sponsored by St. George’s and the Chowan Arts Council. The Carolina Deanery is part of the Diocese of the South of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA).

Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America Issue Statement on the Sanctity of Life

Thursday, January 31, 2019

The Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America affirms the sanctity of life based on the firm conviction that life begins at the moment of conception. The Assembly remains steadfast in its conviction that any interference in the development of life is a serious issue, and therefore it regularly participates in a variety of relevant events and also releases pertinent statements on the topic.

While recognizing that there are rare but serious medical instances where mother and child may require extraordinary actions, the Assembly of Bishops is deeply concerned that the taking of innocent life through abortion has become an acceptable cultural norm. This phenomenon – increasingly prevalent throughout contemporary societies – was exacerbated by a recent law of the New York State Senate (Bill S.240). The Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America categorically denounces these adverse developments that allow for abortion, under certain unjustifiable circumstances, even within the third trimester of existence.

The Assembly of Bishops further reminds the faithful that Christ is a beacon of hope in this challenging world. Accordingly, the Church is always prepared and willing to support women who are considering abortion to find alternative avenues to alleviate any burden, physical and spiritual. The Church is ever a mother – loving, understanding, nurturing, praying, and protecting all human life.
