The Music & Arts Ministry exists to help the church and our city more fully and deeply know, worship, and serve God. Through nurturing fellowship, spiritual growth, service, and creative collaboration, our ministry also seeks to develop our community's artistic gifts and encourage loving engagement with the culture so that we may more truly reflect God's beauty and show His love in Christ to the world. From our weekly services to the concert series, art gallery, and the various creative and cultural events throughout the year, we offer a wealth of opportunities to enjoy, grow in, and share God's beauty, creativity, and goodness.
Current Show: Communion
All Saints' 1st Annual Community Art Show
Featuring Art and Poetry by Members of the All Saints Community
Communion is a sacrament and the culmination of our worship together. As we feed on Christ by faith, in remembrance that He died for us, we’re not only united with Him but also with each other as a true community.
Communion is also:
· A body of Christians having a common faith and discipline
· Intimate fellowship or rapport
· An act or instance of sharing
Taken together, these various meanings of the word almost perfectly describe our 1st Annual Community Art Show: All Saints’ body of creative Christians, out of intimate fellowship and rapport with our community and God, share their creative gifts with us to the glory of our Creator who communes with us in Christ. In these artists’ visual art and poetry, we see a communion of distinct voices and varied subjects, styles, media, patterns, and rhythms that are united not only by common discipline and themes, but, more crucially, by common faith in the One who’s unseen power, light, and life infuses each work with beauty and joy.
As we gather here in community each week and to celebrate around the Lord’s Table each Sunday in worship, our hope is that this show will inspire deeper communion with God and each other and lead us all to share the beauty of community in Christ with the world.

As All Saints seeks to “live as the body of Christ in Austin for the world” we are continually asking how we are called to engage with the culture of which we find ourselves a part. The Cross & Culture series is a launching pad for thoughtful discourse on the dynamic and complex parts of our culture in which we participate daily, including everything from music and literature to movies and politics.
The topics and speakers selected each year help us to not only recognize Christ’s transforming presence at work in these aspects of our culture but, instead of simply navigating past them, to also participate in them more thoughtfully and faithfully.
All Saints' choir is welcoming new members, ages 12 and up! Some previous choir/singing experience suggested but not required. Contact Jamie Taylor for more information.
The choir will not be rehearsing over the summer, but will continue to sing in worship on Sunday mornings. New choir members still welcome!
