The unique story of a unique church began in 1931 with several area families creating a Sunday school in a private home for neighboring children.
A few years later, this evolved to include regular services at a local chapel.
A decade later of Presbyterians and Episcopalians worshiping together, this group decided to form the Indian Hill Church.
The Indian Hill Church is one of only a few successful dual denominations in the country. The church began as a fully constituted dual denomination under the auspices of its two regional governing bodies: The Southern Ohio Diocese of the Episcopal Church and the Presbytery of Cincinnati.
However, Indian Hill Church’s informal roots go back even further. The primary foundational concept was to provide a local church that would meet the needs of Episcopalians and Presbyterians living in the Indian Hill area, and to do so intentionally as an experiment in ecumenicity. There were risks involved in this experiment, owing mostly to denominational differences. And yet, Episcopalians and Presbyterians here were prepared to make this gesture because the rewards so clearly seemed to outweigh those risks.
Now, after more than 50 years, IHC can safely say that their church is no longer an experiment in ecumenicity. It works!
Indian Hill Church has shown that we can accept those denominational differences, be enriched by them, and use them in the creation of new traditions. The faith practices of those attending the church are those of tolerance. The heritage at the church is one of the future.
Indian Hill Church is now a citywide congregation, with a successful programs in Community Outreach and Education. The ministers are inspiring, while the choir thrills. Indian Hill Church would like to see itself as an example for acceptance. All are welcomed.
In other words, Indian Hill Church has shown that religious diversity can be an asset and not at all a liability. An asset for ourselves, certainly; and also for those parts of the world where religious diversity still can cause people to do terrible things to each other.
