All Saints Maastricht holds English speaking worship services usually twice each month. We meet at 10:30 in the back rooms of Onze Lieve Vrouw Basiliek in Maastricht. Our schedule of services is visible on your left. All of our services and events are relaxed and friendly affairs. Everyone is welcome, regardless of religious or denominational background, and there is no dress code!
A ‘typical’ worship service at All Saints consists of several different elements: We use the Bible, the Word of God, to share in a variety of ways the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We pray together and enjoy praising God with music from a variety of sources, both modern and traditional. Teaching, sharing, silence, and sacramental ministry also play important roles. We use international Anglican guidelines as a starting point for each service, but enjoy being creative within this structure. Whether the service is an all-ages service, a communion service, or a contemplative time of prayer, we prayerfully seek to focus on declaring the “worth-ship” of God in each service. Our worship does not end at the conclusion of a service, but continues on in our daily lives and activities. We seek “by the mercies of God, to present [our] bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is [our] spiritual worship.” (Romans 12:1)
Almost all of our Services include English-language “junior church” during the sermon. Our “GIANTS” (children aged 4 – 9) and “Double Digits” (children aged 10-13) meet to learn age-appropriate lessons about the word of God and Jesus’ teachings. Sometimes we hold all age services, which incorporate prayer, music, and lessons appropriate for our entire congregation.
After the service, we join together in fellowship to share a cup of coffee or tea, a bite to eat, and friendly chat. Fellowship is much more to us than food and drink: this is one of the ways we support and care for each other and provide support in times of need. During this time, there is always someone available and space set aside for prayer if congregants feel the need for extra, one-on-one prayer time.
