Finding Rest in Worship
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
The Abbey intentionally doesn’t ask anything of those who come, except to receive the gift of this time and this space. We seek to support those individuals who carry so much of the responsibilities for their respective churches and communities.
It is a place of rest for those who are burdened by the weight of taking care of their families and others around them. It is a time of peace and comfort to those who are mourning, lonely or want to find a place of belonging without having to give anything of themselves before they are ready to do so.
One of the most striking aspects of The Abbey worship service is the aesthetics of the Church. The soft glow of candlelight, carefully selected music, and a time of silent prayer create a sacred physical space that fosters meaningful worship.
