Visiting With Us
What should I know before visiting an Episcopal Church?
Know, first of all, that you are welcome. You are welcome to visit, to worship with us regularly, as a baptized Christian of any denomination to share in the celebration of Holy Communion, and to become an Episcopalian if you wish.
When you worship with us, you may wonder when to stand or kneel. Practices vary--even among individual Episcopalians in the same parish. The general rule is to stand to sing hymns, to say the Creed and for the reading of the Gospel in the Holy Eucharist service. We sit during readings from the Old Testament or New Testament Letters, the sermon and anthems sung by the choir. We stand or kneel for prayer. The best guide is to follow others. If you don't feel comfortable kneeling or standing, for whatever reason, do what makes you feel comfortable.
When you visit an Episcopal Church, you will be our respected and welcome guest. You will not be singled out in an embarrassing way nor asked to stand before the congregation or to come forward. You will worship God with us.
