Welcome to 2019!

The Church of the Holy Spirit is a rural Episcopal parish located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, near the college town of Mars Hill in Madison County, which is north of Asheville. Directions for getting here.

Many have come to Holy Spirit from other denominations, choosing this parish for its warm Christian community and its commitment to service. We accept others for who they are and welcome anyone, regardless of their social, political, and theological views. Come visit us soon. Here's when we get together:
