New Anglican Church in Virginia opens its doors

FAIRFAX, Va. (April 8, 2009) – The Anglican District of Virginia welcomes its newest member congregation, Restoration Anglican Church in Arlington, Va. The new church will open its doors on Easter Sunday for public worship. Restoration Anglican, led by the Rev. David M. Hanke, is a church plant of The Falls Church in Falls Church, Va.

“We are pleased to welcome Restoration Anglican Church to the ADV family. There is no question that planting new churches is the most effective way to reach the unchurched and Rev. Hanke is an exceptional leader who already has demonstrated his gift for building a community of faith through friendship. This new church underscores our shared goal of fostering orthodox Anglicanism throughout the area,” said ADV Vice-Chairman Jim Oakes.

“So many people have come together to help build the foundation for Restoration Anglican Church. We’ve already begun to create a community that connects people to God, to others, and to the needs around us, but our most important benchmark will be whether there are people who are far from Christ that have come into our community and been transformed by the Gospel. We’re excited to see what the Lord has in store for our congregation,” Rev. Hanke said.

Restoration Anglican Church is located at 1815 North Quincy Street in Arlington, Va. The church offers contemporary Anglican worship, small groups, children’s ministry and outreach opportunities. On April 12, Easter services will be held at 9:00 am and 11:00 am. To learn more about Restoration Anglican Church and access the church blog, sermons and a full worship schedule, visit:

I am pleased about this news. We don't have to agree on everything to rejoice in new beginnings for sisters and brothers in Christ.
