We welcome you to
The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea,
a historic landmark church.
The first church building of Bethesda-by-the-Sea was built in 1889 and was the first Protestant church in southeast Florida. The second church was built in 1894 and still stands today as a private residence on North Lake Trail. The present Gothic structure was built in 1925, its cornerstone being laid on March 15, 1925.
Over the years, thousands of visitors have taken time to pause and reflect in this place. Beautiful stained glass windows fill the visitor with awe as sunlight illuminates the brilliant colors of the windows, casting ethereal images in the shadowed church.
We welcome you to join one of our many services. We provide a large-print version of our Sunday service leaflet that is available from one of our ushers. We also provide headsets to enhance hearing. We offer child care for children through two years old every Sunday and offer Christian Education classes for children three and older. Please
