Who We Are

We are the progressive liturgical church of Western Springs. All are welcome to join us as we worship, serve, and learn. All are welcome- no matter who you are or where you find yourself on the journey of faith.

All Saints is a small, friendly community. We are "the church where everyone knows your name" and pride ourselves on a friendly and fun atmosphere. Services are held at 8:00 and and 10:00am on Sundays, with formation for all ages (yes, adults too!) at 9:00.

We worship in a "broad church" style, which will feel very familiar to you if you grew up in a Roman Catholic, Lutheran, or Episcopal setting. Communion is celebrated at each service, and we welcome all to God's table! When the worship service ends, we consider our service just begun, and are involved in our community as members of many clubs and associations. All Saints' Outreach Committee is also very active, and partners with local non-profits to support all our neighbors.

Are you looking for a new church in Western Springs? Do you want to connect with others serving God and loving our neighbors? Are you hungry to renew your connection with God, or feel that you're missing just a little extra purpose in your life? We invite you to join us and see if All Saints can be your home, too.

Our Services

What are services like?
We worship in a broad-church style that will feel familiar to many. Every Sunday we gather to read God's word, hear a response in the form of a sermon (the preaching is excellent!), and to pray and sing. We celebrate communion every week. Our liturgy may be formal, but our "vibe" is much more casual - you'll see folks in blue jeans and babies crawling around. The Episcopal liturgy often feels comfortable to those who have a background in the Roman Catholic Church, and can also be a way for those from less liturgical churches to experience the beauty of liturgy anew. Communion is open to all the baptized.

What is the community like?
We are a small, inclusive, family-like community. The church "where everyone knows your name" we pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly. Plenty of social activities reinforce our bonds and allow us time to have more in-depth conversations. We also value intellectual engagement and have adult education (almost) every Sunday between services as a forum to explore all kinds of theological topics.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You're still welcome, and we hope you'll participate to the extent you feel comfortable. Our service is historically grounded but relevant to contemporary life, and we think you'll take something away from the sermon that will help you in the coming week. We recite a creed each week as an affirmation of communal faith - you as an individual don't need to pass any test to be a member of our community. If you're here, you belong. It's that simple.
