We celebrate weekly Services of
Holy Communion
from the Book of Common Prayer 1662/1928
with Scripture Lessons, Anglican Music, and a Sermon
based on the historic Lectionary.

For the second and fourth Sunday of the month, we use a combined Liturgy for Morning Prayer and Holy Communion.  This is our time to learn and enjoy traditional Anglican Canticles without missing Holy Communion. 
First and third Sundays are Holy Communion alone.

For the fifth Sunday of the month (~4 times per year) we conduct a
Service of Morning Prayer only, using the opportunity for Lay Ministers to conduct Worship Services in the absence of the Rector.
Worship at
All Saints Anglican Church of Traverse City
Our Worship Liturgy is based on the
Book of Common Prayer, 1662. 
For the first Sunday of the month we use the 1928 American Book of Common Prayer, while on the third Sunday we use the 1662 versions with portions of contemporary language borrowed from the
Church of England's modernized version, known as Common Worship.

Scripture lessons are taken from the historic "Eucharistic Lectionary", the 1-yr Lectionary that governed Anglican worship for many centuries.

We sing hymns from the Hymnal 1940, occasionally supplemented with additional music from various sources.   The music is chosen specifically to enhance the meaning of the Scripture lessons appointed for a particular Sunday in the Church Year.

Through digital technology our congregational singing is accompanied by a Brindley and Foster Organ, physically located at St Anne's Church in Moseley, England, outside of Birmingham.  During the Service we listen to the world's finest choirs, presenting musical treasures from the past and the present. 
In all of our Worship we seek to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.
