WORSHIP SERVICE

Make plans to join us for a traditional Anglican worship service this Sunday. We welcome infants and children to worship with us during the service.  We have a monitored children's room and Sunday school that provides children a solid foundation in understanding Christ's teachings. There will be fellowship time after the service for you to meet our parishoners and their families.  The Sunday worship service lasts just over an hour and starts at 9:30 AM.   We also have Mass every Wednesday night at 7:00.  Parking is on the east side of our building and in back. Enter through either door, front or back.   We are located at 131 E. Boughton Rd, Bolingbrook, Il.  at the corner of Rte. 53 and Boughton.  Call us at 630-783-8280.  We look forward to seeing you.

  ALL SAINTS ANGLICAN CHURCH

WE LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU'RE HERE, AND INTERESTED IN OUR CHURCH. YET, MORE IMPORTANTLY, IT IS OUR PRAYER THAT THIS WEBSITE SERVES AS TOOL TO POINT YOU TO GOD, TO EXPERIENCE HIS LOVE AND GRACE.

All Saints Anglican Church was founded in 1996 to ensure the continuation of historic Anglican Christianity in the Western Suburbs of Chicago.  We are part of a nationwide body of traditional Episcopal Churches which stands for historic Christianity in the Anglican Tradition.  We uphold the faith and practices of the one Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.  Our beliefs are based on the teaching of the Holy Scriptures and the ancient creeds of the Church.  We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer as the basis of our worship. 


The parish moved to its current location in 2002.  In 2008, after retiring its mortgage, the church was consecrated by the Archbishop of Anglican Province of Christ the King.  In keeping with Christ's Commandment to "Love thy neighbor" this parish is open to all who seek His holy companionship.  Here, may those who sorrow, find comfort; the weary, find rest; the saddened, find joy; the lonely, find friends; the troubled, find peace and above all, may everyone of us find at work and in our daily endeavors, a lasting sense of God's Divine presence and unconditional love.

The Church is the Body of Christ and holds to these cornerstones:

  • The Bible (Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God
  • The Ministry (Bishop, Priest & Deacon) is the Apostolic Succession
  • The Seven Ecumenical Councils of the undivided Church
  • The Seven Sacraments which convey grace, which Jesus is known to us
  • The Apostles' Creed and Nicene Creed are our standards of Faith
  • The 1928 Book of Common Prayer is the basis for our corporate worship: 
  • Online version of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer



 

YOUTH

MINISTRY

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:  for of such is the kingdom of heaven."  Matthew 19:14


All childen are welcome to join in! Our young children (pre-school through elementary) leave the service before the sermon and return at Holy Communion.  We are currently using the David Cook curriculum.  We have a ton of fun stuff going on here. We get to learn about the life of Jesus and the Bible, while often digging into some games and arts & crafts.

Men's Ministry, Anglican Church Men (ACM) is a ministry

dedicated to the fellowship of men. We meet monthly and focus on Fellowship, maintenance of the Church and planning fun events for the parishioners. Fellowship focuses on improving our relationship with God and each other. We perform minor repairs, as our individual talents allow, that cover both inside and outside projects. We host several Fun events throughout the year, eg. a night out at a Drury Lane show, a Bratwurst/hot dog lunch following a service in the spring, a chili cook-off contest brunch following a service in the fall, a Pancake breakfast during Lent following a service, and the annual Church picnic in August. Last, we contribute to outreach efforts with both funding and sweat equity.

Outreach encompasses both those efforts within the Church and with outside organizations supporting the local community and our deployed men and women of the Armed Services.

WOMEN'S

Anglican Church Women (ACW) shall, through acts of Christian charity, help to support the mission of the church in this parish in such ways as shall be determined by the rector and the membership of the ACW.  The woman's ministry meets the second Sunday each month after Mass.

We organize monthly fellowship luncheons and encourage all women and men of the parish to attend the luncheons. We welcome all women of the parish to attend our meetings. Please plan to reap the benefits of
