Owner Message

  • Our History: Over 120 years ago, a mere handful of Episcopalians joined together in Morristown to form All Saints Church. A priest from Knoxville agreed to come monthly by horse and buggy to conduct worship services for them. The congregation rented a hall over a storefront on Main Street and filled it with chairs and an altar. This was the first Episcopal worship space in Morristown. In the early 1890's, the tiny congregation acquired the first segment of the present building site for $500, for which they paid $100 down and $100 a year. To pay off their land debt, the women of the church sold baking powder, flavoring extracts, and spices. Through much perseverance and the Grace of God, the first Episcopal Church building in Morristown was eventually completed and dedicated by Bishop Gailor on the third Sunday after Trinity in 1902. But after WWI, the congregation dwindled to only two families and Bishop Maxon had to close the church. For a time, the building was leased to the Seventh Day Adventists. The development of Tennessee Valley Authority projects during the Great Depression is credited with bringing enough new Episcopalians to the area to warrant reopening the church in the late 1930's. During the time the church had stood vacant, vandals had set a fire that resulted in extensive damage. Once again, the women of the church led the fund-raising efforts by selling a variety of Appalachian craft items. After restoration of the sanctuary, the women's efforts led to the establishment of a fund for stained glass windows. Uplifting worship, bible studies, outreach projects, and other ministries for men, women, youth, and children await you and your family.
