WHAT TO EXPECT AT ST. ANDREW'S
Both weekly services of worship follow the Anglican pattern of gathering, hearing and responding to God’s word, sharing Holy Communion and being sent back into the world to participate in God’s mission. If you are unfamiliar with an Anglican way of worshipping, you are invited to just relax and let the community carry you through the sacred experience.
Our weekly 8:00am Sunday worship is a traditional spoken service of Holy Communion using the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. It lasts about an hour and has a quiet, contemplative feel. Following communal worship, the community gathers downstairs for communal coffee, Timbits and conversation. These three additional comforts provide further strength as we face the challenges of the week. Come and try us out! Come for communion! Stay for Timbits.
Our weekly 10:30am Sunday worship uses a broad selection of contemporary language liturgies from various Anglican and Lutheran sources. The schedule of biblical readings used in worship are most often taken from the Revised Common Lectionary. It also includes a variety of music and programming for children and youth. Following worship, the community once again gathers for coffee, treats and conversation. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
WHAT WE BELIEVE
At St. Andrew’s, we strive to live out an historic faith in ways that make sense for our contemporary lives. It is an on-going journey of faith that is best discovered by joining us for worship, community events and various adult spiritual education opportunities.
In general, St. Andrew’s is part of the Diocese of Calgary of the Anglican Church of Canada, a member province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. As such, we affirm the historic creeds, most notably the Apostle’s Creed and Nicene Creed, as the basic expression of our beliefs. Other historical Anglican documents that inform who we are include the 39 Articles of Religion, the Lambeth Quadrilateral, the Solemn Declaration, and the Five Marks of Mission.
