Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
- Romans 15:7
Thank you for your interest in St. Alban’s. We love having visitors and newcomers join us for worship. We would be delighted to get to know you better and become your spiritual home.
St. Alban’s is located at 301 Caldwell Lane in the town of Davidson. When you arrive, you can either park on the street or in the big lot behind our building. Wheelchair accessible parking is available in the circle drive to the west of the building or in the parking lot.
If you park in the back lot, you can follow the sidewalk to the rear entrance. Downstairs, you will find the choir room, classrooms for our youth and children’s ministries, as well as our Weekday Preschool. An elevator is available to take you to the upper floor if stairs are difficult. Upstairs, you will find the staff and clergy offices, the narthex (main lobby), the Reflection meeting room/Sunday nursery, and the nave (sanctuary).
On Sundays, we hold services of Holy Eucharist at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Our 8:00 a.m. service is simple, with no music, and usually lasts 45 - 50 minutes. Our 10:30 a.m. service is our larger attendance service, with hymns and musical anthems. It usually lasts about an hour and ten minutes.
If you are coming for the 10:30 a.m. service, look for a friendly Greeter to answer any questions or point you in the right direction. They can help you make a nametag and show you where to find our welcome desk in the narthex near the doors to the nave. The welcome desk has our newcomer forms. Please help us by completing the newcomer form so that we can be in touch and send mail/email to you appropriately.
On Sunday mornings, we offer a nursery for children ages 3 and under. The nursery is staffed by a mix of volunteers and paid attendants, often Davidson College students. All staff are background checked and trained in Safe Church procedures. The nursery is generally open from 10:15 a.m. through the end of the 10:30 a.m. service (approximately 11:45 a.m.) and is located just off the narthex (main upstairs lobby) in the room with double doors.
On the first Sunday of each month, we hold a brief meet-and-greet for newcomers following the 10:30 a.m. service. This is an informal chance to meet the clergy and our newcomer ministry team members. We’ll share a little bit about St. Alban’s with you and give you a chance to ask any questions you may have. This takes place in the Rector’s office, near the top of the staircase.
To officially join St. Alban’s, please contact our Parish Administrator, Jessica Ewell at (704) 892-0173 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be happy to help you!
