I’m New

What to Expect

Saint Paul’s Anglican Church is a warm and friendly congregation. We would love to have you join us for worship any Sunday. If you have any questions or needs while you are here, just ask someone and they will be more than happy to assist you. Some answers to common questions are below.

Los Altos Church Welcomes You

Our Sunday Service

10:30am – A service with a blend of hymns and songs led by our pianist Mrs. Sarah Macias. We follow the Anglican liturgy for Morning Prayer or Holy Communion, beginning with readings from scripture and a sermon, and prayers.

Should I bring money for an offering?

The Ministry of Saint Paul’s Anglican Church is funded by the tithes and offerings of our members. If you would like to make a contribution, you may, but please don’t feel obligated to do so.

May I receive Communion?

All Christians who have repented of their sins and have been Baptized in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are welcome to receive communion with us at Saint Paul’s. If you would like to receive, please come forward to the altar rail when directed by the ushers. If for any reason you are not receiving communion, you are welcome to come forward for a blessing. Please cross your arms over your chest if this is your preference.

What should I Wear?

Most people at Saint Paul’s wear dressy casual clothes for Sunday worship, but you will find some in jeans or shorts and others dressed up. Please wear something modest that makes you feel comfortable. God is far more interested in our hearts than our wardrobe. We’re just honored and humbled that you’ve chosen to worship God with us!

A Word to Parents of Children

We delight to have children and families join us for worship, and we want you to know that children are always welcome to stay with their parents throughout the whole of the worship service. If you feel you need to leave with your children during the service, that’s OK, but please come back!

Baptized children may receive communion at whatever age their parents feel that they are ready. Please speak with one of our clergy if you are not sure if your child is ready. Children who aren’t baptized or who don’t yet receive communion should cross their arms over their chest and the priest will give them a blessing at the altar rail.
