St Timothy’s is a place where we take the concept of community seriously – it is a place to retreat from the turmoil of life but also is a place where faith moves beyond the sanctuary. Here you will be inspired, think deeply, reflect critically, communicate openly. This is not a place where the congregation is called simply to sing and listen. We are active in our faith. It's a unique, diverse, multi-generational, inclusive community committed to the living the Good News of Jesus Christ and transform this world with the spirit of Aloha.
We are part of the Episcopal Church in Hawaii and connected to the world-wide Anglican Communion. Our history in the islands is unique and owes its presence to the efforts and patronage of King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma whose Christian witness founded the Queen's Medical Center; welcomed the establishment of the Church in Hawaii; and supported the founding of schools for the education of Hawai'i's children. We honor our Ali’i annually on or about November 23rd with the celebration known as the Feast of the Holy Sovereigns.
St Timothy’s Episcopal Church was founded in 1953 when ‘Aiea was still “country,” far from the big city. It moved from the area of the ‘current Aiea Shopping Center to its Moanalua Road location in 1970. The city has grown, and more development is projected. Yet, St. Timothyʻs remains a visible and vital leader in the community.
