New to Church?
No problems someone will help you.
Going somewhere or doing something for the first time naturally causes nervousness and some anxiety. It requires becoming vulnerable and takes courage. Coming to a church – or returning after a long break - for the first time is no different. We hope that at All Saints, you'll feel welcome. We're genuinely glad that you've chosen to worship with us, and we look forward to meeting you. (And if you have children, we're happy to see them too)
You Can Participate.
Anglican worship is participatory. We generally stand to sing, sit during readings and the sermon, and stand or kneel during prayer. Practices vary; even among individual Anglicans. Some; but by no means, all of us kneel or cross ourselves at various points in the service. These actions are personal aids to worship and are purely optional. Please, do what you find comfortable.
You are welcome to take communion.
If you are baptised you may take the bread and wine, the bread only, come forward for a prayer of blessing or choose not to leave your seat at all. The communion table is God's table, and God's generosity is great. Children may come forward with their parents for communion or a blessing.
There will be an opportunity to donate to the work of the Church during the service. Once again this is personal and optional.
