What to Expect in Worship at All Saints As discussed here, All Saints worships in the Anglican Tradition.
We have shaped our liturgy so that it allows for a more purposeful and personal worship experience. What this means is that the worship is connected so that the service builds upon itself; our goal is to avoid disconnected worship, and definitely avoid rote worship (a liturgy that is repeated week and week until the heart of the worship can be lost).
The sermon, based on Scripture is the center of worship. The minister leading the service will strive to shape the service around the themes of that day's Scripture.
If Scripture and the sermon are the center of our service, the Grand Finale is the Communion. We share the Communion in context of its biblical foundation - it represents God's promise that His people, redeemed by Jesus, are indeed restored into the family of God. Communion is meant to be a time of great joy - we celebrate this great redemption and in our participation in the Communion we reaffirm our commitment that we have real life only in Jesus Christ.
Any guest to All Saints that has been baptized in a Christian Church is welcome to take Communion. Note we do use wine. Any person who does not drink wine can receive Communion by simply taking the bread.
Our service actually begins at 8:55am when we open in praise music. This is to move us “out of the world” and into a spirit of worship. The liturgical service begins at 9:00am.
In the pews you will find a binder that contain our worship service and music; a visitor to All Saints simply needs to follow along in the binder.
When visiting All Saints, dress as you feel comfortable. We are casual, and our service will reflect that. Ties and jeans easily exist together.
Authentic worship should be something that attracts our spirit, and something that draws us back week after week. Whether it be preaching, music, prayers, communion, fellowship, or hopefully all of these things; we desire to create a place where God is truly worshiped and glorified, and His people are renewed.
