Bethesda Church, Saratoga Springs, was incorporated as a church on October 4, 1830, and accepted into the Diocese of New York on October 8, 1830.  Bethesda’s stone building, likely designed by architect Richard Upjohn, was completed in 1844. A new façade, designed by A. Page Brown and supported by Spencer and Katrina Trask, was added in 1887. The historic church interior is stunning with Tiffany windows and hammer-beamed ceiling supports.  Bethesda is well known for its music programs and its beautiful organs. A long tradition of service and outreach continues as the church nears its bicentennial in 2030. In 2018, Bethesda will publish Bethesda Episcopal Church: A Place of Worship and Healing in Saratoga Springs, New York, a comprehensive history.
