We do not merely provide fellowship. We are a faithful fellowship.
The Christian faith is not something we’re intended to go through alone. Ours is a communal faith, not a private faith. America is suffering from a pandemic of loneliness and isolation, and the church holds the solution in the communal life of the parish.
Article 19 of the 39 Articles states:
The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministered according to Christ’s ordinance in all those things that of necessity are requisite to the same.
This means that we are not just a community for community’s sake, but for deeper and more substantial purposes. We do not merely provide fellowship, we are a faithful fellowship.
We are faithful to orthodoxy, as we “hold and maintain, as the Anglican Way has received them, the doctrine, discipline and worship of Christ and to transmit the same, unimpaired, to our posterity.”
We are also faithful to one another, as we seek to provide opportunities for our parishioners and our community to develop meaningful relationships, to experience healing, and to receive support—spiritual, material, and emotional—in their lives.
Meals & Dinners
Coffee Hour Every Sunday & Monthly Lunches
The Hospitality Ministry provides a welcoming space for fellowship and friendship within the church. In addition to weekly coffee hour, we offer monthly meals in the Parish Hall after the Sunday Eucharist, continuing until June. After Choral evensongs and Festal services, we host candlelight receptions. We care for those in need with our Take them a Meal and Freezer Meals ministries. This ministry exists because many enthusiastic volunteers participate. All are welcome.
Acts 2:42 Groups
Various times at homes around the North Shore
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42). Launching in September, 2:42 Groups meet monthly at the homes of parishioners throughout the North Shore for a meal and Evening Prayer. These small groups provide an environment for deeper personal spiritual formation, in which seasoned Christians and newcomers alike can develop closer relationships and pray for and encourage one another on our shared journey of imitating and resting in Jesus “out in the world.” For more info or to join a group, contact Fr. Samuel.
Bible Studies & Prayer
Brunch Every Third Saturday, 9:30
Bible Study Thursdays, 9:30-11:00
We have a vibrant Women’s Ministry here at Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church with many opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth. We offer a Women’s Brunch ever third Saturday of each month, beginning at 9:30 in the morning. We also offer a Women’s Bible Study, which meets every Thursday morning from 9:30-11:00.
Sundays (after the service)
Every Third Saturday, 4:30-6:00
The Healing Ministry offers prayer after the Sunday service for physical, spiritual, and mental healing and comfort. It also offers a Third Saturday Healing Service every third Saturday at 4:30. We create a peaceful environment for people to come and still themselves before God and receive prayer and counseling. The Intercessory Team is a team that is in daily active prayer for the church and all those that serve in it. They meet weekly to pray over concerns and offer prayer during meetings.
Arts & Life
Films Worth Talking About
Bimonthly Saturday Nights
Films Worth Talking About is a Ministry for parishioners who enjoy movies and the fellowship of like-minded people. Attendees gather to enjoy a meal and good conversation, then move into a parishioner’s home theater to show films that can spark discussion from a Christian perspective.
Affirming Life Group
Second Wednesdays at 7:30 pm
The Affirming Life Group seeks to promote reverence for the sanctity of human life at every stage and to serve as Christ’s “hands and feet” in advancing His message of abundant life for all. Through prayer, education and action, the group seeks to broaden the recognition of the dignity and God-given value of each individual from conception to natural death.
Join us on Sundays at 10:00 am.
