Our Story

St. Aidan’s Anglican Church is a congregation devoted to  3 Principles:

Common Prayer
Common Worship
Common Life

St. Aidan’s Church began as a small group Bible Study outreach in Jessamine County from St. Patrick’s Anglican Church in Lexington.

We began meeting with five people for prayer and fellowship over a common meal in the Fall of 2008. As we met and prayed, the Lord planted a desire in our hearts to see a community of worshippers in Jessamine County, devoted to each other, and to reaching out to the least, the last, and the lost in our neighborhoods and workplaces.

Through 2009 and 2010, we met and prayed, and began to sense the Lord’s calling to plant a liturgical community in Nicholasville, Kentucky. We began gathering families and friends together, and in the August of 2010, St. Aidan’s Church officially launched as a ministry to Jessamine County.

Since that time we have grown as a community, and begun the practice of intentionally reaching out the communities in which we live, work, and worship with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. We started our annual Bazaar as an opportunity to provide free food and low-cost household goods to the community in 2011. In 2012, we started a small food ministry.

In August of 2014, we moved to our current space in the Lily Springs Shopping Center at 926 S. Main Street in Nicholasville. This has enabled us to increase our overall space as well as partner with the Jessamine County Food Pantry as a second food distribution site, and begin a children’s clothing ministry. In 2020, St. Aidan’s began hosting a Spanish-language service on Sunday evenings.

We invite you to join us as we reach out to the wilderness on our doorstep, and to seeing the first-fruits of the Kingdom of God right here in our midst in Jessamine County.
