Who We Are
Church of Our Saviour is a joyful church community in the Episcopalian tradition that was founded in 1867. Some might experience our service as a little bit old fashioned but all kinds of people worship here; liberals, conseratives, lots of young families, elderly and many nearby college students. We've been described as 'Old Growth Episcopalians' and 'The English country church on the edge of Boston' and even as 'spiritual comfort food'. I'm not sure I agree with that last one, but if it means that we help draw people into a deeper relationship with Christ, then...guilty as charged.! However, this parish while comforting has a long tradition of challenging the faithful as well toward a closer and more meaningful walk with God.
Liturgically, Church of Our Saviour has never been interested in catching the latest innovations in music or worship. We follow the 1979 Book of Common Prayer and we're neither 'high' nor 'low' to use the old phrases but somewhere right in the middle, always seeking to point toward the cross and the One died there and rose again. No tambourines!
Our rector seeks to preach sermons that are relevant to what is happening in the world, scriptural based, humorous when appropriate and never lengthy. The music leans toward English Cathedral style. We welcome all people to receive Holy Communion. Our Coffee Hour is not only delicious but very welcoming.
