"More of the Story" speaks to our church's desire to move forward in a way that is faithful to our story thus far. God birthed All Saints Anglican Church in 2004 as a small group of people who met together, prayed together, and asked the question, "What is the Spirit doing among us and how should we respond?"
Fostering this ongoing posture of discernment has been the motor that has allowed our church to purchase a building together, call a rector, find episcopal oversight, launch new ministries, identify our Mission & Personality, transition to two services, and more recently, decide to develop our property and pursue church planting at the same time.
This discernment process has taken many twists and turns, and so far, it has led us to this present moment, on the cusp of building a Mission Abbey. Mission Abbey is how we answer the question, How do we develop our property and pursue church planting in a way that is faithful to our Mission & Personality? Answer: we build a Mission Abbey (read more here).
The first phase of our Mission Abbey will be its central piece, the Nave, which will include a narthex, a hospitality area, a nursery, bathrooms, the worship space, and behind it a sacristry and vesting rooms. Right now, the nave is designed to be a little over 15,000 square feet, holding around 330 people. The projected cost of the project is now near $5 million, which includes site development, two new parking lots, and all the furnishings and equipment.
