We are located at 2368 Eggert Road, Tonawanda NY 14150, near Sheridan Drive. Our church is just 19 minutes from downtown Buffalo and 6 minutes from the University at Buffalo.
We warmly invite visitors from all backgrounds to join us in our weekly services, Bible studies, concerts, volunteer opportunities and numerous outreach events. If this will be your first visit with us, here is what you can expect:
We have four “Holy Eucharist” services on Sunday: 8:00am, 9:15am, 11:00am and 1:00pm. We also offer a Saturday service at 4:30pm.
Each of our Sunday services have a different atmosphere:
• 8:00 am is a quieter, contemplative service without any music.
• 9:15 am is a contemporary service with our musical worship team. (The first Sunday of each month features traditional hymns).
• 11:00 am is a traditional service with hymns and choir. (The fourth Sunday of each month features contemporary music).
• 1:00 pm serves the South Sudanese community in Buffalo. All are invited to enjoy Anglican liturgy with traditional Sudanese music and prayer.
Both the 9:15 and 11:00 service offer a well-supervised nursery for infants and toddlers 2 and under and great kid-friendly program for children Pre-K through 5th grade.
Upon your arrival you will find a welcoming environment with a friendly greeter who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Anglican worship is defined by two commitments: To the authority of the Holy Scripture (the Word of God) and to the Holy Sacraments. Together Word and Sacrament point us to Jesus Christ and, in doing so, work to shape us into a faithful Christ-centered community.
The way we express this worship is known as the Liturgy. Far from empty ritualism, Anglican worship involves the active participation of the whole person: our mind, body, and soul. Everything you will see and experience in the service – the prayers, the symbols, and the actions – all invite us to share in the good news of God’s salvation. The reading and teaching of the Holy Scriptures (the ministry of the Word) prepare us for the culmination of our service, which is the receiving of Holy Communion (also referred to as "the Lord's Supper").
All baptized Christians are invited to receive Holy Communion with us. If you would like to receive but are not able to come forward please tell an usher. The priest would be happy to bring communion to your pew.
If you are not baptized, or would prefer not to receive the sacrament, we warmly invite you to still come forward and receive a blessing. You may indicate this to the priest by crossing your arms across your chest. As our valued guest your only obligation during the service is to keep an open heart to what God may desire to do in you!
After each service we invite you to our coffee hour in Fr. Amend Hall just behind the sanctuary where you can grab some refreshments and stop by our hospitality booth for a free gift. We’d love to meet you!
