Saint Timothy’s Episcopal Church is a traditional, welcoming, and scripture based place of worship that leads to salvation through the celebration of the sacraments, service, fellowship, and outreach.
Our strengths are our adherence to basic Biblical Christianity, our faithfulness to the Anglican tradition, our diverse congregation, and our support of a fine Parochial School.
Saint Timothy’s is located in the North Hills area of Raleigh, NC. Holy Communion is celebrated at 9 AM and 11 AM on Sundays.
Please join the rest of your parish family through Holy Week and on Easter Day.

Good Friday is the most solemn day in the Church Year. It is the anniversary of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is a day of fasting, abstinence and penance. No celebration of the Eucharist takes place on Good Friday; this has given rise to the practice of receiving the Sacrament from the pre-sanctified host from Maundy Thursday. The Good Friday Liturgy has three parts: the Liturgy of the Word which includes the singing of the Passion According to Saint John, the praying of the Solemn Collects and Communion in one kind from the Blessed Sacrament (Mass of the Pre-sanctified). Our Good Friday Liturgy will be on Friday, April 18th at 7:30 PM. We will meditate on the Stations of the Cross at 2:30 PM.
Please be sure to sign up for the Easter Reception after the 11 AM service on Easter Day. Our Easter Reception has become a tradition at St. Timothy’s as we celebrate the Resurrection and break our Lenten fasts. Please plan to bring your favorite treat on a plate or tray, ready to put on our table, prior to the 11 AM service. Betsy James or another reception hostess will receive your dish for the Easter Reception.
For our Vigil Before the Blessed Sacrament from Maundy Thursday evening through Good Friday morning, we like to have at least two persons keeping the Vigil. If you are willing to commit to at least an hour, please print your name on the poster for that purpose in the narthex or the parish hall.
And Jesus cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, “What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Mt. 26: 40-41
