What should I expect on Sunday?
Q: How long is the service?
Our Sunday service lasts approximately 90 minutes. Coffee and snacks are available afterwards for those who would like to stay around and visit together.
Q: Is there child care?
Nursery is provided to care for your 0-3 year-olds, and to lead them in a Bible story and song. We encourage you to check in younger children 5-10 minutes before the service. You are welcome to come and get them either during the offertory music before Holy Communion or at the end of the service.
We offer Sunday School for your 4-9 year-olds, which begins after the Children’s Sermon. The children sing songs, act out Bible stories, enjoy a snack, and receive engaging teaching geared to their age. Afterwards, they will be brought back into the service during the offertory music to participate in Holy Communion.
Q: How should I dress?
Simply put, come as you are. We are a diverse church and you will find a diversity of dress. For most people, that tends to be something like jeans and a shirt, whether collared or tee. For others this may be a coat and tie. It’s not about the building or how you dress, but about worshiping God in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24)!
Q: Will I be singled out?
No. We will not ask visitors to stand and be recognized, to give a testimony, or anything like that.
Q: Will I be pressured to give money?
Never. While we encourage our regular members to be generous toward the needs of the poor and the mission of God’s Church, visitors are never asked or expected to give.
Q: Will I feel out of place if I’ve never been to an Anglican church?
We understand your hesitation. For many of our members this was their first experience in an Anglican worship service as well, but you have nothing to worry about. When you come through the front door, you will be warmly greeted and given a service leaflet where everything you need to know is clearly presented. It is our desire for warmth, depth, and joy to pervade the entire service.
We are a liturgical church. The word “liturgy” comes from a Greek word meaning “work of the people.” Therefore, you will notice that our service is quite participatory. There will be sitting, standing, and kneeling (if able). People are invited to offer prayers, either silently or aloud. Music is a mixture of contemporary, multicultural, and traditional hymns. Holy Communion is celebrated weekly and is open to all baptized Christians, regardless of denomination.
If you are curious about the meaning behind any of the things that we do, feel free to ask your neighbor or one of the clergy. While we believe the Anglican Church has deep roots and great riches to offer, we identify with the Lord Jesus and his universal Church more than any denomination.
