Music & Arts

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: "True to the Unseen"

Coming Up: Ordinary Time Community Art Exhibition

Current Show: "True to the Unseen"

Eastertide and Ordinary Time provide extended periods to explore the depth and power of God revealed both in Christ's resurrection and in the work of the Holy Spirit in His people for the world. Erika Huddleston's dedicated exploration of God's unseen power in the created world - and the beauty, vitality, color, and light in her work - helps us to more fully comprehend how the light of the world brought by the risen Christ now infuses the whole of God's creation and us, His people. Through the resurrection and by the Holy Spirit, we have become, with Christ, the light of the world, empowered to seek His kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven, enabled to fix our eyes on what is unseen.

Ordinary Time Community Art Exhibition - 2018

Submissions are now closed, and All Saints is reviewing artwork and poetry submitted by our worshiping community for an exhibition planned for the Gallery this July. The gallery has limited wall space, so art will be chosen to give the exhibition visual variety and​ to fit cohesively in the space.

If you have any questions about the show, please email Missy Wood.

  • MEDIUM: All 2D Art & Poetry
  • ARTIST NOTIFICATION: June 15th
  • ART GALLERY READY AND DELIVERED TO ​ALL SAINTS: June 29th
  • SHOW DATE: July 1st

Creativity is a way of living life, no matter what our vocation, or how we earn our living.”

Cross & Culture Annual Series

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.
