Moving to Morning Prayer until September 6th

This past Sunday, we announced our intention to start using the office of Morning Prayer as our principle Sunday morning worship service. This will begin on Sunday (August 16) and continue for the next four weeks until the end of the summer (September 6). During that time, we will also host a series of conversations to help deepen our understanding and appreciation both for worship in the Anglican tradition generally, and Morning Prayer in particular. Through these discussions, we hope to hear from many of you about your hopes for worship at All Angels as we launch into a new program year on September 13.

Rector’s Reflections on the Pandemic

It’s been over ten weeks since our Rector was last in the pulpit, and offered some early reflections on what living through a pandemic was teaching us as a church. Almost three months later, a lot has changed in our nation and in our world. What is God calling our church to be and to do in this moment? Join us Sunday to hear more.

We would really value your feedback as we seek to improve your experience of online church. We don’t want to do online worship forever but, while we are doing it, we want it to be as good as possible.

The results of this survey will be collated and shared with the staff team and the vestry. The results will guide our planning over the summer and inform the shape of the service come the fall. We welcome honest feedback: if filling out the form raises questions for you please don’t hesitate to contact the clergy directly for further discussion.

Please fill this quick 10-minute survey and let us know your thoughts. This is an anonymous survey unless you give us your name (there’s an option to do that at the end).

We haveconsolidated all our adult education and prayer services into one hour on Wednesday evenings. Over the summer, two of our priests–John Schmidt and Jimmy Lawrence–have introduced a new series of videos called “Priests on Zoom Getting Coffee.” Each video includes a mixture of theology, personal stories, resources of going deeper in prayer and most importantly: coffee. You can watch last week’s episode here. Next week, John and Jimmy bring season one to a close with their season finale.

Both the prayer service and the study will take place on Zoom. Please RSVP to to participate. Hope you can join us!
