Welcome to Saint Martin's Chapel!
This is the new Landing Page of Saint Martin's Chapel of Bakersfield, the temporary cathedral church of the Free Anglican Diocese of California (Worldwide Anglican Church). Located inside the heart of Saint Martin's Hall, our Chapel is home to the Diocesan Bishop's cathedra and his episcopal ministry to the great state of California.

As the newly appointed WAC Suffragan Bishop of North America, Saint Martin's Hall also serves as one of two administrative centers for the Worldwide Anglican Church in North America (WAC-NA). The other administrative center for the WAC-NA is home to the Matriarch and Archbishop Primate of North America, the Most Rev. Dr. Christine Johnson.

Select either the Diocesan page for Saint Martin's Chapel or the Home page for the Free Anglican Diocese of California below. Other ministries we offer include the Bakersfield Center for Pastoral Counseling and the A. David Parker School of Ministry. We look forward to worshipping with you at one of our services!
