Welcome to St. Bede’s Episcopal Church!
Welcome to St. Bede’s Church. We are a congregation of the Episcopal Church located in the City and Diocese of Los Angeles. St. Bede’s is the parish that serves the communities of Venice, Playa Vista, Mar Vista, Ocean Park. We also have parishioners from Marina del Rey, Playa del Rey, Westchester, Santa Monica, Culver City & West Los Angeles.
St. Bede’s is an inclusive Christian community, and we welcome all visitors and newcomers to worship with us at any of our services. Whether you are simply visiting or looking for a church home, you are welcome here for as long as you are with us.
If you are new to the Episcopal Church, the Eucharist (Communion) is the central focus of our worship. We invite anyone who feels drawn to join us in the service or at the Table to do so. You can also remain in your seat if you are unsure about participating.
If you are interested in becoming a member of St. Bede’s, please speak with the clergy. Please do not hesitate to contact the Rector (pastor) or other clergy if you have special needs such as baptism, confirmation, or marriage, or if you wish to consult a priest.
