When you look for a church, what do you consider important? Do you want one that both looks and feels like it is worshiping “in Spirit and in truth”? Is it important to celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday with seriousness and reverence? Should the congregation be small enough to know you personally, but large enough for real fellowship? Do you feel enriched by a blend of traditional and modern hymns that are sung with true feeling? Are you looking for a church with a style of worship, and a theology, that traces as far back as the Early Church Fathers? Then let me recommend the Anglican Church of the Resurrection, which meets in Brewster, Massachusetts, on lovely Cape Cod to you!
We are part of the Anglican Church in North America and we are in communion with most of the members of the worldwide Anglican Communion. We are heirs of the Great Reformation which was started and led by people like Martin Luther and John Calvin. In England the Church was reformed by Thomas Cranmer and others who wanted to return the Church to a form closer to the Early Church. Imagine, who would better know the mind of Christ and His apostles than those who lived soon after His death and while the New Testament was being written? When you read the writings of the Early Church Fathers like Ambrose, Augustine, Justin Martyr, and John Chrysostom you realize that they were passionately aware of the terrible nature of our sin, and of the amazing grace of Christ that cleanses us of it.
There are a number of other factors that stand out about this church. We have a number of veterans in our congregation, me being one of them, and we appreciate and understand them. We respect the whole Bible, realizing that when you disregard parts of it you’ve placed yourself above it and it can no longer teach you. We partner with the Brewster Council on Aging, the Lower Cape Outreach Council, and the NOAH shelter to work for the good of people on the Cape. We have a healing prayer ministry that is large and active. If you’d like to know more, please peruse this website. Better yet, come and join us on a Sunday! We’d love to meet you!
The Rev. Alan Wilmot, Vicar
