All Saints Episcopal Church
100 North Drew Street • Appleton, Wisconsin 54911 • (920) 734-3656
We welcome you and would like to help you feel comfortable observing or joining our worship. If this is the first time you have visited an Episcopalian church, you will notice that:
•The bulletin you were given as you arrived, with the Book of Common Prayer (red) and The Hymnal (blue) helps us all join together in worship.
•Our priest leads us in worship and guide us through the service.
•We treasure our roots in the traditional liturgy (the form of the service) and music of church tradition.
•We stand, sit or kneel at various times during the service, according to custom as well as our own abilities and preference. You will find it easy to simply follow your neighbor!
•Wheelchair seating is available next to the front pews under the lectern. (Our building is accessible.)
•A hearing loop is installed.
•Everything, from the architecture of the building to the pattern of our worship, is focused on the mysteries of the altar.
•All baptized Christians are welcome at our altar. If you wish to receive Communion, follow the people seated in front of you to the altar rail, where you may kneel or stand. Cup your hands to receive the wafer and take the base of the chalice in your hand to guide it to your lips. You may choose to receive only the bread or only the wine, or simply to receive a blessing. Simply cross your hands over your chest as the cup or chalice is passed.
•We love it when babies and children join in our worship, and we are not disturbed by crying, fussing or joyful noise. Some parents choose to keep their children with them throughout the service; others make use of our nursery, only collecting their children for Communion.
