About The Church

Construction of the existing church building began in 1962 and the first service was held in October 1963.
Earlier, in 1960, the Manchester communicants of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Tullahoma, held their first meeting to establish their own church.
It was then that the Bishop chose St. Bede's for the mission.
St. Bede's celebrated it's 50th Anniversary and rededication of the building on October 13th, 2013.

St. Bede's Mission

Our mission is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.
We pursue this by prayer, worship, proclaiming the Gospel, and by promoting peace, love and service to others.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding:
in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight" - - Proverbs 3:5-6
