Office Hours: Monday – Wednesday – 9 am – 5 pm.
Open, inclusive, inviting, inspiring
St. Alban’s is a faith community where diversity is honored and celebrated; where acceptance, encouragement and love are given so that all people may explore their journey in faith; and where, through our many gifts, we cultivate a desire to give in thankfulness for all God has given us. We are of different ages from different backgrounds and during ‘the season’, different countries. We are straight, we are gay. Some are single, some married, some partnered, some – single again. We are women, men and children. Some of us live alone, some with others. People who come to St. Alban’s have all kinds of different reasons for choosing to make this a spiritual home – and this is a blessing.
So, no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
Please note: We are a small parish with a big heart. We operate thanks to a part-time staff and volunteers who enable us to provide rich worship experiences and to contribute to many outreach projects.
We are also a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida and are part of the world wide Anglican/Episcopal Communion. The Rt Rev. Dabney T. Smith is the Bishop of the Diocese. The Rt Rev. Barry Howe and J. Michael Garrison are Assisting Bishops.
The Rev. Gigi Conner is the Priest in Charge.

Re-imagine, Reconnect, Rejoice: A journey toward God
Featuring Brian McLaren, Sarah Bessey, and Fran McKendree. Here is an opportunity to talk about the church -does it have a future? Can the church of this century address the needs of people? Why do some people mark ‘none’ on a form that asks for religious affiliation? What does the church/Christianity have to offer to those who say ‘I’m done’ with church. How can we reimagine a Christianity that speaks to the disenfranchised? Our speakers will give us their thoughts which will might challenge us thinking and help spur on our conversations.
The Great Spiritual Migration. Brian argues that— notwithstanding the dire headlines about the demise of faith and drop in church attendance—Christian faith is not dying. Rather, it is embarking on a once-in-an-era spiritual shift. McLaren challenges readers to stop worrying, waiting, and indulging in nostalgia, and instead, to embrace the powerful new understandings that are reshaping the church.
Out of Sorts. “It’s about making peace with an evolving faith. It’s my way of leaving the light on for the ones who are wandering and wondering in their faith or spiritual journey. I believe that if our theology doesn’t shift and change over our lifetimes, it means that we’re not paying attention.”
And there will be time to walk the labyrinth, the Stations of the Cross, the Canopy walk up in the trees, get a massage, read a book, do some yoga, or just sit on the porch and talk to other people.
