Mission Groups in Seekers Church

Mission groups have been a core element of the life of Seekers Church from our beginning in 1976. A decade earlier the Church of the Saviour established mission groups as the place of primary belonging for everyone in the congregation. Today, Seekers mission groups are a primary place where we are living out God's call on our lives, the place where we belong most deeply to this small part of the Body of Christ.

This booklet provides information on:

  • Why we think mission groups are important;
    How they are structured in Seekers Church;
    How mission groups support our Christian servanthood in the life of the community and its service to the world;
    What a mission group and a participant can expect from each other;
    The significance of a mission group for its members;
    How to join an existing group; and
    How we nurture the birth of new groups.

Word and Music in Worship

This provides a framework for those involved in preparation for Sunday worship at Seekers Church. "Guidelines for Selecting Music", "Guidelines for Preaching" and "Guidelines for Liturgists" were prepared by Celebration Circle; "The Children's Word" was prepared by the Journeying with Children mission group. All are based in the experience of the community, and are offered with love and with the understanding that sometimes the Spirit of God moves us to ignore all rules and guidelines.

Worship with Seekers Church: A Visitor's Guide


Seekers Church is an intentional Christian community that has grown out of the Church of the Saviour, founded by Gordon and Mary Cosby in Washington DC in 1946. During its life, Church of the Saviour has developed a strong commitment to the priesthood of all believers, lived out through an outer journey of service to God’s creation, balanced by an inner journey of disciplined prayer and reflection to support individual discernment of God’s call.

Since 1976 when Seekers came into being as a separate congregation, we have added to these traditions a commitment to shared leadership, a readiness for conversation among the faith traditions we inherited, and new understandings of Christian commitment, and an invitation to all with full respect for the richness brought by people of different age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or spiritual tradition. We want to be a church for all God’s people.
