christmas services

Bell

Each of our CHRISTMAS SERVICES has a different character. 

5 pm is a simple service of telling the story of that night in Bethlehem 2000 years ago. Members of the parish bring forward parts of the nativity scene and then we share in Communion and favorite carols. Sign up to bring in the parts of the scene by email to info@allsaints.be or on the sheet in the church cafe.

11 pm is the traditional service of Carols, Candlelight, Communion & sermon which ends at midnight.

11 am celebrates the day, "yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning"  with communion & homily.

christmas eve dinner

YOU DON'T HAVE TO COOK A WHOLE CHRISTMAS EVE DINNER -- join with fellow parishioners and bring a dish to share as we have a meal together after the 5 PM service. Sign up in the church cafe or at info@allsaints.be

first sunday after christmas

The first Sunday after Christmas we'll keep our tradition of giving thanks for our gifts. Bring one gift you received this Christmas that has special meaning for you this year to church that day and if you want you can share the story. Then we'll give thanks for gifts, those who give, and the greatest gift of all, the birth of Jesus. (We have a baptism that day too!)

what we believe:

As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and we believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Episcopal Church has members in the United States, as well as in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands.

We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.

The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity.

Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions and is celebrated in many languages.

Both men and women, including those who are married, are eligible for ordination as deacons, priests and bishops.

We believe in amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.

Lay people exercise a vital role in the governance and ministry of our church.

Holy Communion may be received by all baptized Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church.

We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.

We affirm that committed relationships are lifelong and monogamous. Episcopalians also recognize that there is grace after divorce and do not deny the sacraments to those who have been divorced.

We affirm that issues such as birth control are matters of personal informed conscience.

We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion.

All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.
