Four Winds Anglican Mission is a faith community swimming in an ancient / future stream ( where we honor the traditions and wisdom of early church fathers as we share the Hope of Christ’s Gospel in contemporary ways), based in Columbia, TN. Four Winds is a part of the Anglican tradition, one of the first Protestant church denominations formed with a long history of bridge building between all major Christian church cultures and traditions.
Our service uses ancient forms of worship alongside progressive expressions of Faith. If you have never experienced any form of church liturgy it may feel foreign to you, but it will provide a new and deeper dimension to experiencing God.
Between the traditional sacraments, symbolism, call and response prayer, and imagery used throughout the service, it is impossible to absorb all the intended meaning and depth in just one sitting. Each week as you return to our services you will begin to sense the rhythm and the flow of our Faith heritage. Our worship is very intentional. It has purposeful ebbs and flows. Like a thoughtful poem each element builds upon the next and each layer builds upon deeper layers of meaning creating a rich tapestry of authentic worship and shared devotion.
Liturgy literally means, ‘the work of the people.’ This means that what we do in each service is done as before God, and we do it together. The ultimate goal each week is to pour ourselves out completely in worship to God that He might once again fill us anew. As we take this Pilgrim journey, we seek to bring a beautiful, truthful, and excellent offering to our God, together as a family of Faith. If you’d like to join us in our ancient-future worship, we would love to have you visit.
