The Water’s Edge is a worshipping community in-the-making, learning how to walk the Jesus way together.
We draw on a rich Anglican tradition, somewhat dressed-down. So typically we tuck away things like processions and robes to focus on the simple stuff: on meeting Christ in scripture read, music sung, and the bread and wine shared at the Lord’s Table.
Water’s Edge begins at 4pm on Sunday afternoons.

One of the most common questions I have heard at Transfig throughout the pandemic, in all the chaos, shifting and pivoting, is:
“When will Water’s Edge be back?”
It is encouraging to know this service has had a deep impact people, whatever the reason: the intentional and thoughtful language in the liturgy, the singer-song writer reflection pieces paired with hymnody, or the family-style meal following the service. There are many elements to Water’s Edge that render it “alternative” to a typical service, but the worshipful and intentional community that has grown around it has been no less beautiful.
We are bringing the Water’s Edge service back as of Sunday April 10th. The services will happen monthly at first and, naturally, will look different than before. While we won’t be able to eat together around the table right away, we plan to return to that ritual when it is safer to do so, and are cooking up some ideas of other ways to “eat together” until then. As always, we will need scripture readers and prayer leaders, musicians and singers, in order to conduct the service, and we ask you to consider if there are ways you are willing to participate. Regardless of how you are involved, we are excited to welcome and reconnect with you, as we rebuild and re-form this community into its next embodiment.
Should you have any questions regarding what to expect, or are wanting to get involved, I am very happy to connect with you about it all. You are welcome to reach out by phone or email. Let’s talk soon.
