How we worship

Our Christian family at St Andrew’s Anglican church embraces our apostolic, catholic, evangelical, and reformed tradition. In our international setting we offer a spiritual home for mainly English speaking people here in Moscow. We invite you on your journey from whatever Christian tradition you are even if you just wish to explore more about yourself and your own spirituality.

Every Sunday, we gather round the Table to hear and reflect on the word of God in an atmosphere of generous and attentive listening, enabling everyone with an opportunity to encounter God. We enjoy, in a community which shares bread, wine, fellowship at church. In doing so, we seek to look in two directions at the same time: towards God, worshipping him, and towards the world, showering it with his grace and goodness. We offer a Eucharist every Sunday on which we have two services; one at 8.30 and one at 11:00 using the liturgy of Common Worship.

The 8:30am Eucharist

This service uses the traditional liturgy which is very closely related to the Book of Common Prayer of 1662 using Order Two in Common Worship . It is a service without music and offers an atmosphere for quiet reflection and preceded by a time of morning prayer at 8am.

The 11:00 Sung Eucharist

This service uses the modern liturgy which reflects a structure which enables us to embrace the seasons of the church year. We offer a crèche and Sunday school each week and on the last Sunday of the month, we have a more informal family communion service at which we encourage reflections of the word and prayers from the younger members of our church.

Midweek Eucharist

We have a midweek service on Wednesday at 7pm using the contemporary Order One service from Common Worship.
