St. David’s is a big church with lots to offer. We want to make a place for you in the parish by welcoming you into smaller groups for spiritual development and community building. We also encourage you to take part in retreats and special events which are offered throughout the year. Once you find a place to plant your roots, your spiritual life, formation, and relationships will begin to flourish!
For people seeking a place to grow spiritually through Christian and other practices, The Abbey at St. David’s is a community in the heart of Austin and online. This is a natural extension of St. David’s role in our city since 1848: building connections in love, hope, joy, and vitality as we serve others. The Abbey is also an online hub for inspiring educational resources that people can access from anywhere. Find an online class, special event, or group to join and stay connected during physical-distancing!

St. David’s is committed to being a place that helps people grow into followers of Jesus, otherwise known as disciples. To encourage people to participate in the on-going work of discipleship, the church has developed The Discipleship Challenge, a month-long program based around fun and engaging activities that help us strengthen our discipleship muscles so that we can develop into more faithful disciples of Jesus.
