St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is a downtown parish in the heart of Chattanooga, Tennessee. We are a diverse parish that actively celebrates the love of Jesus Christ within our parish walls and throughout the greater community. St. Paul’s is home to a community where the best of Episcopal traditions embrace open-minded conversations; where beliefs are put into action; and each person is encouraged to seek God and progress on their own spiritual journey as we gather at the Lord’s Table each service. The Church itself, an historical Chattanooga landmark, serves as a gathering place for worship, celebration, fellowship, outreach, solace, and learning. We welcome all persons, no matter their station in life. Whether you are visiting from another city or are seeking a spiritual home in Chattanooga; and whether you are a confirmed Episcopalian or new to the Episcopal Church, we invite you to explore our parish in person.
The founders of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church first met in 1852 and held services on 2nd floor of Thomas McCallie’s General Merchandise at 4th and Market Streets. In 1853 ten families met at home of Col. James A. Whiteside on Poplar Street to organize the parish. We currently hold services in our second Nave on Pine & 7th Streets in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. Built in 1881, our Nave is on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
