We Are Anglican


Fr. Aaron WrightWe are Anglican, but…you don’t have to be. That’s one of the beautiful things about Old North Abbey.
Many of us consider ourselves Anglican Christians, and as a church, we worship in the Anglican Way. However, many of us come from a number of different backgrounds. We are made up of Catholics, Baptists, Greek Orthodox, Presbyterians, Charismatics, Mennonites, Methodists, Church of God, Christian Church, Lutherans, and folks without any church background at all. We have gathered to be a local expression of the Body of Christ. At Old North Abbey, all of those different ways of being a Christian, or wondering what that even means, can find a home. If you listen long enough you will probably hear this little term called Via Media come out in a conversation at Old North Abbey. It means the middle road. Our diversity actually demands of us to find a space where we can all gather in unity, in a middle space. So, 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…” We think that communicates something profound about the work that God is doing in the world. We would love for this to be your experience.
