Welcome to Calvary Hillcrest Episcopal Church in Delaware

Interior of Calvary, Hillcrest during a Service of Lessons and Carols just before Christmas.

“The Lord bless you, and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.”

Calvary Episcopal Church — just north of Wilmington, Delaware and just south of Bellefonte — is a Christian community in the American Episcopal tradition.

We welcome all people and seek to live in faithful witness to the message of Christ through worship and through service to others, reflecting the manifest glory of God.

Please look around our website and feel at home. We have been a vibrant part of the community in North Wilmington, Delaware, near Bellefonte, for over 150 years. We are proud to be part of the Episcopal Church of the United States of America and the Episcopal Diocese of Delaware.

If you have any questions, please let us know.
Come visit us! We’d love to help you get to know why Calvary is so special.
