Who We Are

The Swedenborgian Church Worship Resources website is a project of the Committee on Worship, a.k.a. (COW). The Committee on Worship is composed of ministers appointed by the Chair of the Council of Ministers to "consider and report on all matters connected with the worship of the Church"* and in this capacity now provides this website as a means of sharing worship resources throughout all Convention churches and bodies around the world.
*Bylaws of the Council of Ministers Article III Section 4.

Committee members are: Rev. Jennifer Tafel (chair), Rev. Alison Longstaff, and Rev. M. Judith Vandergrift.

Our mission is to "collect, store, correlate and disseminate information both within and beyond Convention"** about worship resources and ideas. The goal of this effort is to accumulate an accessible database for use by ministers, lay leaders, worship leaders, congregations and isolated members as they endeavor to live out Convention's purpose "to clarify and intensify our participation in and contribution to the Lord's New Age."***
