The Company of Servers was formed in the spring of 2009 for all who are servers in the Anglican Communion.
Membership is open to all ages, from the youngest, newest server, to those who have dedicated many years service. Members are known as Companions and become part of a national and international community of friendship, teaching, learning and support.
“Those who serve at the altar share in what is offered at the altar” 1 Cor.9.13
The Company of Servers hopes to raise not only an understanding of the hows and whys of serving but also encourage those who serve already to continue and feel valued. Through raising awareness of the ministry of those who serve at the altar it is hoped that others will begin to explore this essential role in the service of God and his Church.
Currently there are chapters in Bath & Wells, Exeter, London, Norwich, Ripon & Leeds, Salisbury, Southwark, St Albans and York. In addition, chapters are currently being formed in Chelmsford, Guildford and Manchester.
