When & Where

The Parish meets for worship on Sunday mornings at 9 & 10:30am. Our worship services are held adjacent to Legacy Community Academy at 11940 Alpharetta Highway, Suite 128, Alpharetta, GA 30009. Childcare is available at 9am (Nursery & preschool only) & 10:30 (Nursery through middle school).

What is a worship service like?

Worship Services at The Parish are lively, welcoming, and reverent. We are always excited to welcome new guests, and we always make sure that our services are accessible for a first-time worshipper. We begin with music and a short lesson from the Scriptures, followed by a time of prayer and communion. To hear some of our most recent sermons, click here.

How long will the service last?

Our services begin at 9am and 10:30am and are one hour in length. Feel free to arrive as early as you like, and stay afterward to connect with those around you.

What do people wear?

Most people dress casually, so feel free to wear whatever makes you the most comfortable. We also love for everyone to grab a name tag on their way in.

What about children?

Children are important members of our church family. On Sundays at 9am, children’s programs are available for nursery and preschool age children. On Sunday at our 10:30am service, children’s programs are available for nursery through middle school. Elementary and Middle School students begin the morning in their small groups, and will join our adult worship service for worship and communion. You are always welcome to keep children of any age with you during either service.

The fourth Sunday of each month we meet for family worship which means there are no childcare programs available.  Since we welcome children in our worship services, we remind people in advance that there will be a few disruptions now and then, especially on the fourth Sunday. We believe that their worship matters to God and that they are learning to worship by being with us each week. To learn more about our family ministry program, click here.

Will I be asked to do anything unexpected?

As a church, we embrace the use of liturgy, which means the “work of the people.” So our worship services are led by the people, and everyone is invited to contribute by standing, singing, and reading prayers and scriptures together. We keep it very simple and will let you know exactly what to do.

Am I expected to receive communion?

We celebrate communion each week, but no one is required to come forward and participate. We invite anyone who is baptized and following in the way of Jesus to come forward and receive the bread and wine that is offered. If you would rather not receive communion, you are more than welcome to stay in your seat.
