AST Special Services
Throughout the year, special services are planned and led by the Worship Committee.
Early in the Fall term, a Matriculation service is held to welcome new members (students, faculty, and staff) into the AST community. Often there is also an opportunity for the commissioning of new members to the Board of Governors as well as the Student Union Executive.
Each year, AST marks the beginning of the Advent season with a service of hope and preparation.
The beginning of the Winter term concides with the celebration of Epiphany. Recently this service has included a blessing of the residence building.
End of year Agape
The end of the Winter term and our year together as a community is celebrated with an agape (love) feast. Prayers, scripture, and worship are shared as we break bread together and reflect on the year of learning.
