About Our Church
All Saints Anglican Church is the Mother Church of all the traditional Anglican Churches near Hendersonville and Asheville in western North Carolina. All Saints Church is a parish of the Anglican Province of America. We are a part of the historic Holy Catholic Church, tracing our teaching and ministry to the Apostolic Church, and part of the worldwide traditional Anglican movement.
In worship, we use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer (BCP). This edition contains prayers and affirmations of faith dating to the beginning of Christianity, as well as the traditional Anglican / Episcopal liturgy. This liturgy has been in continuous use since it was published in 1549.
When we gather for worship, as an expression of devotion, it is customary to kneel for prayers unless a person is physically unable to do so. We stand in reverence at the reading of the Holy Gospel and in affirming our faith when reciting the Creed. We also stand to sing praise to God in our hymns. We sit for instruction during the reading of the Epistle and during the sermon. In general, we stand to sing, sit to listen (to readings and the sermon), and kneel to pray and confess (if physically able). Do whatever is comfortable for you. The easiest choice is to follow the lead of those around you.
When you join us here at All Saints, you are invited to review and use the small booklets in the pews entitled “For Our Visitors” to familiarize yourself with our form of worship.
