Church of the Resurrection is a vibrant Episcopal church, located on the corner of Gregory Lane and Kahrs Avenue in Pleasant Hill, that has served the surrounding area since 1959.  Our community is made up of people of all ages, religious backgrounds, political positions, family configurations, ethnicities and church experience.  We share a love of and connection to God and each other, a sense of meaning and belonging, a yearning to grow in our faith, and a desire to serve Christ by reaching out to others in the community.  We also have a lot of fun together.
           
          Church of the Resurrection is part of the Episcopal Diocese of California, which is made of up approximately 80 churches in five Bay Area counties.  The Episcopal Church played an important role in the early history of San Francisco and Grace Cathedral, one of the city’s landmarks, is our diocesan center of worship.  The Diocese of California is overseen by our Bishop, the Right Reverend Marc Andrus.

         The Diocese of California is part of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America (ECUSA), which includes congregations and dioceses in all fifty states and a few foreign nations.  The Episcopal Church has its roots in the Church of England, and also in the colonial period of United States history.   The head of the Episcopal Church is the Presiding Bishop, the Most Reverend Michael Curry.
       
        Through its historical connection to the Church of England the Episcopal Church is a member of the Anglican Communion, a world-wide association of 38 self-governing churches or provinces in over 160 countries which share an historical connection with Great Britain and the Church of England.  The Archbishop of Canterbury is the titular head of the Anglican Communion.  Although he has no power outside of Great Britain, the Archbishop is accorded honor and respect as the senior bishop in the Anglican Communion.
