"I was a stranger and you invited me in" (Matthew 25:35)
Every church is unique and St. Timothy's is no exception. Even if some things feel new and unfamiliar to you, we hope the Q&A's below help you feel as comfortable and 'at home' with us as you can.
Some commonly asked questions
What time are services?
At present we have one Sunday-morning service at 10:00 am. However, starting on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm in October, we will resume our midweek Eucharists from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Also, on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 8:00 am, we have a Healing Service. More details can be found at www.stcraleigh.org/our-worship
What do I need to bring or wear?
It is our custom to provide full service bulletins with everything you will need to participate in our service, minus hymns (which are found in hymn books in the pews). As for what to wear, most adults in our congregation wear "business casual." As for children, it can be anything from formal to casual.
Where can I park?
When you pull into our campus from Six Forks Road you are welcome to park in any of the spaces to your right or in the small parking lot on your left as you enter.
What happens when I walk through the door?
Once you park, enter through one of the three front entrances. An usher will greet you, provide you a service bulletin, and offer any necessary information you might need - especially regarding COVID-related protocols. Five minutes before we begin organ music will play, at the end of which time the person leading will welcome the congregation prior to beginning the liturgy itself.
What about my kids?
Because of COVID restrictions we are not providing separate nursery or Sunday school. Children of all ages are welcome in the service , whether they are fast asleep or wide awake! If you desire a private place to breastfeed or to take an upset child you are welcome to use our designated Quiet Space, a small room near the entrance ways of the church.
Am I allowed to receive Communion?
It is our belief that anyone who has been baptised in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit may receive Communion, regardless of age or denomination. However, if you have not been baptized or do not feel comfortable receiving, you are welcome to receive a blessing from the Priest instead.
How long should I plan on being there?
Currently, our service lasts between 50 minutes and 1 hour. On the first Sunday of the month you are welcome to joins us outdoors after the service as we gather for coffee and doughnuts.
