Welcome to Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.
All are welcome at Redeemer
- All races
- All religions
- All countries of origin
- All sexual orientations
- All genders
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
Music by Alan Ridout in organ recital
Walter Knowles performs The Fourteen Stations of the Cross (1978) for organ by Alan Ridout (1934-1996) as part of a multimedia meditation. Photos of sculptures from Altenberger Dom, which inspired this suite, and poetry by Malcolm Guite are a part of the mediation.
This program is on the Richard Bond organ at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Kenmore, Washington, on March 31 at 7:30 pm.
Included with the program are Max Reger‘s and Johannes Brahms‘s chorale preludes on “O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden [O sacred Head, sore wounded].”

What is The Church?
When we talk about the church, we don’t mean the structure, or the land or the altar or anything like that.
When we say the church, we mean the people. The church is the community of the New Covenant. It is made real in the gathering of people who are welcomed into relationship with God and with each other. We believe that we are joined not just with the people that we can see, but with people in relationship with God throughout space and time.
In this community, we are not perfect. Instead, at its best, each of our flaws and foibles is held for us by the community so that we can move into closer relationship with God, who is always holding out welcoming arms. We hope that you might join us to experience what this means more fully.
