Where Did We Begin
On Sunday, October 1, 2006 a small group of Anglicans from the Tri-State area of Kentucky, West Virginia, and Ohio met at the Barboursville, WV City Hall to worship together for the first time. This initial service was the culmination of months of prayer and planning by a group of about twenty-five (25) people who had long felt the desire to worship under the banner of traditional orthodox Anglicanism.
After this inaugural meeting we met in the main conference room at the Barboursville Hampton Inn that we affectionately referred to as – St. Hampton’s.
On Christmas Eve 2008 we celebrated our first service at St. Mary’s thanks to a collaborative effort with the Pallottine Sisters.
Due primarily to renovations occurring around St. Mary’s Hospital, in 2012 we moved our services to 2 pm and met at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. We returned to St. Mary’s in 2013.

We initially associated with the Anglican Province of Christ the Good Shepherd, one of the “continuing” Anglican communions, under the leadership of Bishop Mark Camp. As historic North American Anglicans began to realign themselves, All Saints sought out affiliation with the Anglican Mission in the Americas (AMiA) and was received as a parish in the AMiA in January of 2009 by Bishop Doc Loomis.
In 2012, the parish became part of the Anglican Diocese of the South (ADOTS), under the direction of Bishop Foley Beach. ADOTS is a part of the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA).
As part of the ACNA, we are now in communion with millions of Anglicans around the world, and are united with some 100,000 Anglicans in nearly 1,000 congregations across the United States and Canada into a single Church.
Come and find your place with us, worshiping in the historic faith and serving God as Christians all over the world have down through the centuries.
