What would it be like to live all of life in reference to Christ?

We’re gathering families, children, teenagers, retirees, singles, people coming from all walks of life… let’s follow Jesus together! We don’t think we’re better than others. We’re just beggars telling each other where we found Bread. Humility and faith are right at the heart of our message. We are because He IS!

About our name: Eucharist is the ancient Christian word used to describe the central elements of Christian worship: the bread and wine which Christians receive by faith as the living presence of the crucified and resurrected Jesus. The original Greek word simply means “thanksgiving.”

Our Diocese and Bishop: Churches for the Sake of Others is a missionary diocese of the Anglican Church in North America focused on planting new congregations all across America. Within the Bay Area there are currently six sister Anglican congregations who are part of our diocese. Our Bishop is Todd Hunter. Bishop Todd had a wide variety of experience leading in various Christian contexts before being ordained as an Anglican Bishop. He serves as the Rector of Holy Trinity Church in Costa Mesa, California, in addition to his duties as a bishop, speaker, professor, and author. He is married to Debbie and has two adult children.

 

Welcome to San Francisco Anglicans

Copy of SF Logo Background 3Welcome to San Francisco Anglicans! This website exists to help people get connected to congregations in the Bay Area that are affiliated with the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). If you’d like to get connected with a local priest in San Francisco, please feel free to reach out to Fr. Ryan Jones – ryan@eucharistSF.org or 415.685.3429. If you’re looking more broadly at the Bay Area, please reach out to Fr. Ed McNeill – ed@newanglicanchurch.com who is the Dean offering oversight of the Bay Area congregations connected to Churches for the Sake of Others (ACNA diocese).

If you’re looking for an Anglican congregation in San Francisco itself, Eucharist Church is what you’re looking for (since we’re the only ACNA congregation currently). We are a young congregation made up of Anglican transplants, newly confirmed Anglicans, people who appreciate a three-stream (Evangelical, Charismatic and Sacramental) approach to worship, seekers and more.

We look forward to getting to meet you!

Register today for the Always Forward Church Planting Conference

Are you discerning a call to plant a church, but not sure where to start? Is your church looking to learn how to grow and multiply in your local community? How can your diocese best raise up and send out church planters? How can you become a better team leader?

Get answers and meet other church planters at the Always Forward Church Planting Conference on Thursday, August 25 - Saturday, August 27, 2016, at Wellspring Anglican Church in Denver, CO. 

Always Forward is the official church planting arm of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). The national conference will provide four tracks of resourcing and discussion for the different lenses of church planting:

Track 1: Current Church Planters - For planters already in the field, content will address the practical work of starting a new church;

Track 2: Potential Church Planters – For those discerning a call to church planting, we will teach on the core character and competencies needed for church planting;

Track 3: Churches That Want To Plant Churches – For churches who want to multiply, this track will discuss models, processes, and best practices for church planting churches; and

Track 4: Church Planting Leaders – Designed to equip diocesan and network leaders to develop the proper convictions, culture, constructs, and collaboration to cultivate an environment for church planting.

To register for the conference, click here. The cost is $150 and includes all conference materials as well as lunch and dinner on Friday. Scholarships are available.

Click here for more information on hotel accommodations. Host homes are also available on a limited basis for active church planters. Contact Dan Alger at for more information.

Always Forward is a collaborative effort of the province, dioceses, local churches and people of the Anglican Church in North America working together for the planting of new Gospel-centered, sacramental, missional churches throughout North America. Click here to learn more.

2016 Anglican Family Symposium to take place at Truro Anglican Church

Building on the discussions from the first symposium, the 2016 conference will continue the conversation with some top-notch plenary speakers and practical workshops. Presenters will include the Rt. Rev. Dr. Graham Tomlin, Bishop of Kensington in the Diocese of London; the Rev. Dr. Tory Baucus, Rector of Truro Anglican Church; and Dr. Joseph Atkinson, Associate Professor of Sacred Scripture at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute. The 2016 Anglican Family Symposium is intended for clergy, lay leaders, parents, and anyone else interested in joining the conversation. Registration opens on July 12. More details can be found at our site.

“At the 2015 Symposium, The inadequacies of the current curricular-driven, age-segregated, programmatic models of Christian education were acknowledged” remembered Julia-Marie Halderman, one of the Anglican Family Working Group members. “There was a renewed sense of urgency to articulate a hope-filled, counter-cultural, life-giving Biblical theology of marriage, family, and singleness to an increasingly broken, fragmented, and lost society.” Video of the 2015 plenary addresses as well as articles from some of the workshop speakers are available on the AnglicanFamily.com website.

“This year we hope to dig into the scriptures to discover what a biblical theology of the family looks like” commented the Rev. Christopher Klukas, Chairman of the Anglican Family Working Group. “There is only so much formation that can happen on a Sunday morning. For the gospel to take root in a child’s heart, she must see the faith lived out in the everyday rhythms of her family. It is my hope that conference participants will come away with a renewed vision for ministry to children, youth, and families in our congregations.”

Anglican Family, a working group of the Anglican Church of North America Committee on Catechesis, is dedicated to the renewal of families for the flourishing of church and society through the resourcing of clergy, lay leaders, and parents in the work of faith formation.
