WHAT TO EXPECT
Our gatherings are meant to be causal, participatory, and engaging. This means music, the arts, teaching, time for dialogue, and the communion table are a regular components of our gathering. Most importantly, you have a major part to play in our gathering each week as we remember Christ together.
New Abbey desires to be organized through our local neighborhoods. We believe the life of the church should go far beyond Sunday gatherings. We believe in the investment of our whole lives in developing deeper community with all people in our local neighborhoods.
We call this neighborhood model, The Parish. Like the traditional Catholic or Episcopal church, our neighborhood church exist as part of a larger, unified family.
Historically, to have a parish meant to take spiritual responsibility for a geographic area. New Abbey believes in taking ownership, not only of the spiritual condition of the neighborhood, but also to find ways to tangibly love and create space for the reconciliation of our neighborhoods.
Our Sunday gathering is meant to be diverse in nature, reflecting the women, men, children and families from various cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and ideological values across the neighborhoods we find ourselves in.
