Newport, RI View map


Built in 1902, Emmanuel Church is an Episcopal congregation located in Newport, Rhode Island, a historic seaport city of 25,000 residents at the southern tip of Aquidneck Island, the largest island in Narragansett Bay.

The church was designed by the noted church architect Ralph Adams Cram with the interior designed by Bertrand Grosvenor Goodhue, the church includes a limestone altar, carved wooden choir stalls, striking stained glass windows, monumental murals in the Art Nouveau style and an ornate oak reredos. The church comfortably seats 250 people. Emmanuel Church, one of Newport’s architectural treasures, is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Connected to the church is the exquisite All Saints Chapel, beautifully restored in 1983. It seats 52 people and is ideal for small weddings and renewal ceremonies, or as a pre-wedding gathering place for groomsmen and others in the bridal party. Valet parking in our church lot is available.
