Who Are We?
WHAT HAPPENS AT RED DOOR?
The Red Door Ministry at The Church of the Advocate, is located in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, and is a worshiping community of the Episcopal Dioceses of WNC. Most of our friends simply know us as The Red Door. Our ministry was established in 1997, making it one of the earliest to serve the marginalized and outside people in the downtown area. On Sundays, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist and offer a safe and sacred space for our congregation to enjoy conversation, creative expression through art, access to our First Aid station, The Basics Supply Closet and our Sole Mate Shoe Closet. A community meal is shared following our celebration and everyone is welcome to join us. Participation in the worship is NOT required to take part in any offerings. On Tuesdays, you will find us opening The Red Door for Lectio Divina, a community brunch with snacks, counseling and a place to just be.
