Participating with God

For the Life of the World.

  • See, we believe that God loves all of creation, and wants us to participate with Him in bringing life to it. Read more...

We are Anglican, but...

You Don't Have to Be.

  • Every Sunday, before we break bread together, you will hear these words, “This is not Old North Abbey’s table, this is not an Anglican table, this is God’s table…” Read more…

Coming to the table

With God and One Another.

  • We have Communion every Sunday. We like to look at it this way: if God invited all of us to eat with Him, to talk with Him, to spend time with Him, that would be a hard invite to turn down. Read more...

Kids' Table

—We Love Tables...

  • We believe that church is vital to our children. We want to make sure that our children experience God’s love and we think we have a pretty good way of doing just that. Read more...

  • " A genuine, loving community that gives me hope in the midst of my doubt."


  • "A place of simple beauty…it is a place where I feel like all of the service is worship and points us toward God."


  • "A church where through the liturgy and the table I see, hear, and participate in the story of redemption every time."


  • "A community of broken but earnest people who want to be useful to God."


  • "A church that reorients me weekly to the Kingdom of God. Old North Abbey reminds us of who we are and who we are called to be."
