Hagia Sophia Gnostic Church is the only fully sacramental and liturgical Gnostic Christian church within the Apostolic Succession operating in the Seattle area. We are the Seattle parish of Ecclesia Gnostica, and are not affiliated with any other Seattle religious groups. Hagia Sophia is welcoming and affirming to all seekers, offering weekly Holy Eucharist celebrations on Sundays, as well as occasional evening services including: Services of Healing, Benediction of the Most Holy Sacrament, Devotional Services to the Holy Sophia, and observation of holy days.
Our parish numbers about forty members, of whom anywhere from a handful to two dozen may be in attendance at a given service. We are hierarchical in matters of liturgy, egalitarian in all other matters. That is, the priest has the final word on all questions of ritual and on our calendar of services, but the parishioners retain authority over all other aspects of parish life. We govern ourselves informally by consensus, or more formally through parish meetings.
