Worship

Eucharistic worship in the round engages us and renews us through sacred liturgy, spoken word, vibrant music and joyous fellowship.

 

Worship at All Saintsʼ is. . .

  • liturgical (meaning it follows a script);
  • scriptural (at least three Bible readings are included in most services);
  • participatory (the congregation reads, sings and responds throughout the service).

What to expect

At All Saints’ Episcopal Church, we make a special effort to welcome all newcomers and visitors to our services. Our Sunday booklets are designed to make it easy for everyone to follow and fully participate in the service as each is comfortable. Everyone who desires to draw near to Christ is welcome to receive Communion at All Saints’. 

We love to celebrate and our liturgies are colorful and often eclectic.  Our congregation is comprised of members from different church backgrounds and religious
traditions, and we seek to embrace and celebrate our common life in ways that speak to all.

 

As we have discovered in recent group discussions, we are fed by different language and differing types of music. Variety, we have realized, is one constant that binds us together -- what feeds me may not speak to my neighbor this week, but next week he or she may find the old version of the Lord's Prayer answers a deep need. We see value in being exposed to others’ viewpoints, traditions, innovations, ways of seeing Christ and ways of worshipping.

Currently, on one Sunday per month we use newer liturgies from the New Zealand Prayer Book and Enriching Our Worship.

We look forward to meeting you!
