Worship & ARTS

Create. Respond. Worship. Grow.

In the beginning, God created. At All Angels’, our Arts ministry reminds us that we are co-agents with God in the world he’s made.

We believe the arts are a key way for us to witness God’s creative power on earth. In fact, it is through the arts that we experience the fullness of God, together. Through our Arts ministry, we worship and meet with God; are further formed into the likeness of Christ; and step beyond ourselves to serve and inspire those outside of our immediate church community.

Our Worship Arts ministry is much more than singing songs during Sunday services, though it’s certainly that, too. It’s also a pioneering approach that sees the arts as a fundamental expression of God’s command to “be fruitful and multiply”, a way for Christians to grapple with the human condition in a way that invites dialogue and fosters relationship inside and outside of the church, and as a soul-nurturing, community-building ministry that further knits us together in Christ.

We seek to fully integrate the arts into the mission of our church through worship services, ministering to artists of all kinds, commissioning and hosting art exhibitions, using our physical space in ways that affirm God’s creative power, and opening our doors and minds to the creativity on display in our neighborhood and city.

Through all of this and more, the arts allow us to meet with God and to be further formed by his creative power and saving grace. 

What We’re Doing

Worship Arts

We bring a range of performance and liturgical arts to give voice and vision to our worship. Music ensembles lead the congregation in song in 10AM and 5PM services. Children and adults alike present dramatic pieces to highlight special seasons. Sanctuary installations and worship folder artworks add depth and dimensionality to the liturgies of word and table. We welcome dynamic artistic contributions for worship!

Gallery Exhibitions

With functional gallery space on three floors of our Parish House, we love to display artworks on a rotating basis with special exhibitions seasonally.

Make Cafes

The Make Cafe series aims to nourish the creative life of God’s people at All Angels. Learn more about it here.

Connecting Artists

We gather the artists in our midst for dinner and fellowship each quarter, and Facebook and email groups allow for connections year-round.

There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation.
