Welcome!

Saint Joseph’s Episcopal Church, aka “the little church with the big red doors”, is located on Main Street between Ninth and Iredell Streets in Durham, NC, across from Duke University’s East Campus. Our community life is rooted in the sacraments, daily prayer, study of the Scriptures, and fellowship with members, friends and neighbors inside and outside our walls. Following the example of our patron Saint Joseph, we want to make our church home a place of warm hospitality grounded in God’s love and to take that love out into the world.

We welcome all people to Saint Joseph’s Episcopal Church regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.  All persons are welcome wherever they are on their faith journey and life journey. To learn more, please visit our  Welcome Statement.
