Church of Our Saviour Oatlands Building Project begins!
November 2nd, 2014: Breaking Ground for the new Church of Our Saviour Oatlands
NEWS RELEASE. On November 2, 2014, the Anglican Church of Our Saviour at Oatlands held a ground-breaking ceremony for its new church building to be built at 20138 James Madison Highway, Leesburg, just north of the Oatlands Plantation on Route 15. Work on the preparation of the site for the new building is to commence later this month, pursuant to plans previously approved by Loudoun County. The new building, to be completed in early 2016, is about two miles north of the present historic church building, also located on Route 15 at the Goose Creek Bridge. The Church of Our Saviour at Oatlands is one of the oldest churches in Loudoun County, dating from 1876.
After the church’s regular 9:30 a.m. Sunday service at its old building, the Congregation gathered at the new site for the groundbreaking ceremony. The church’s Rector, the Reverend James Basinger, led the Congregation in prayer before turning the ceremonial first spadeful of dirt. Mr. Basinger notes that the church is especially thankful to have found a beautiful new building site so close to its present location and so well located for future church growth.
The Church of Our Saviour at Oatlands is a traditional Anglican church adhering to biblical Christianity and the liturgy of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. All are welcome and invited to services each Sunday at 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.
Further inquiries should be directed to the Reverend James Basinger at 703-777-1035.
