You may wonder when to stand or kneel. Practices vary—even among individual Episcopalians. The general rule is to stand to sing, for the affirmation of faith and for the reading of the Gospel. We sit during readings from the Old Testament and New Testament Letters, the sermon, and the choir anthems. Some stand, while others kneel for prayer.
All baptized Christians are welcome to receive communion in the Episcopal Church. A baptized child may receive Communion at any age; that decision is left up to the child and his/her parent.
