What to Expect
A LITTLE ABOUT US
Worship at Immanuel Anglican Church combines friendly, urban-Midwest informality with the grace and beauty of Christian rituals that date back thousands of years. The service is led by our Rector (head pastor), Father Aaron Damiani, with many lay leaders—men, women, and even children—actively taking part in proclaiming Scriptures and leading prayers.
Anglicans view worship as “a work of the people,” so the service is highly participatory. A detailed Order of Service is provided so that everyone may join in worship as much or as little as he or she is comfortable.

We meet for worship every Sunday at 9:00AM and 10:30AM at 640 W Irving Park Road. (Pre-registration is required of all attendees, to help us keep each service capped at 50 people.) Learn more about our regathering here.

Part of our worship each Sunday occurs through singing praises to the Lord. Scripture repeatedly invites us to “sing new songs” to the Lord. We see music as a way to express our thanks to God for all he has done.
In the Anglican liturgy there are four weekly prescribed readings from the Bible. One from both the Old and New Testament, a Psalm (which is read together as a congregation), as well as a reading from one of the four Gospels.
For thousands of years the church was exposed to God’s Word principally through the spoken voice. We embrace the richness found in the hearing of God’s word and hope that through the reading and listening of Scripture each Sunday the Lord will transform our hearts and minds to be more aligned with His.
We partake in Holy Communion (also called the Lord’s Supper or Holy Eucharist) whenever we are able to do so safely.
Jesus commanded this sacrament for the continued remembrance of the sacrifice of his atoning death, and so that we may receive strengthening and refreshing of our souls by the body and blood of Christ, and of the love and unity we share with other believers.
