Gethsemane Episcopal Church began with a handful of people in 1856, seeking to establish a worshiping community in the soon to be burgeoning city of Minneapolis. For over 150 years, Gethsemane has been sowing seeds of worship, community, and justice. If you have further questions about the church, or would like to know more about our worship, mission, and ministry in the community, please stop by for a visit. The best way to get to know us is to join us for worship on a Sunday. All people, of every race, class, gender, sexual orientation, belief, and those seeking to learn more about their faith journeys, are welcome to experience and join our community. Our services are Sundays at 8 o'clock and 10 o'clock.
