On Sunday, November 15, 2015, at 10:00 AM Light of Christ Anglican Church dedicated its new church building at 9500 Northumberland Highway in Heathsville, Virginia.
The Rt. Rev. John A. M. Guernsey, Bishop of the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic, led a Service of Dedication with the following words:
Through the ages, Almighty God has moved his people to build houses of prayer and praise, and to set apart places for the ministry of his holy Word and Sacraments. With gratitude for the building of Light of Christ Anglican Church, we are now gathered to dedicate and consecrate it in God’s Name.
Peace be to this house, and to all
who enter here.
"Never forget that the true glory of the
Light of Christ Anglican Church is found
in the presence of Jesus"
