Resurrection Anglican Church will Launch Easter of 2024. Right now, the community is beginning to form as we plan and pray about how we can best build relationships and serve as a witness to the mercy and love of God to Midlothian. If you'd like to stay connected to what's going on in the growing Resurrection community, click here.
Resurrection Anglican Church aims to create a space for believers and those with questions to build community and grow in faith. Resurrection seeks to invite families in Midlothian into something that is both ancient and engaging with the world today. Our worship is rooted in the liturgical tradition of the Anglican Church, and passionately committed to hospitality and missional presence in our community. We long for those in our church to experience real communion with God and be formed to grow in love for one another and their neighbors.
The Vicar (lead pastor) of Resurrection Anglican Church is Lewis Lovett. Lewis, his wife Maggie, and their four daughters moved to Midlothian from Lexington, VA in the summer of 2022. Lewis was previously ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America and served for the last 7 years as the Campus Minister at Washington and Lee University with Reformed University Fellowship. Lewis and Maggie love having people over and enjoying the outdoors. You can find them in their yard or walking their dog Pippin around the neighborhood.
Lewis is a graduate of Wofford College and Covenant Theological Seminary. He currently serves as the the Church-Planter In-Residence at our sending church, Redeemer Anglican Church in Richmond, as he prepares for the launch of Resurrection.
We are part of the multi-ethnic, multi-national, multi-cultural Anglican Communion that is historically rooted in the English Reformation. Specifically, we are a mission of the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic in the Anglican Church in North America. As Anglicans, we want to express the liturgy of The Book of Common Prayer in a way that beautifully engages us, our children, and our neighbors.
We are committed to worship that is:
Spirit-filled: we believe God is always and everywhere present and active among his people. We anticipate the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the church for the illumination of truth, the conviction of sin, and the restoration of all things.
Bible-guided: we receive the Christian Bible as the true and living Word of God. We preach and teach from the Bible because we believe it is the inspired word of God, which leads us into the Church and a saving relationship with Jesus.
Liturgy-formed: we value the longevity of historic tradition, the rhythms of the church calendar, the centrality of the Communion Table, and our connection to the global Church.
Our essential beliefs about God are captured by the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds.
