We live in a culture where being in a church means shopping and consuming community. We invite you to find your plot of the garden within the community and the world we live in and get your hands dirty.

Liturgy

We live in a culture where being in a church means shopping and consuming community. We invite you into a beautiful alternative, Liturgy, which means “the work of the people”.

Every Sunday at 10:30am
@ Space12 (3121 E 12th St)

Greenhouse Kids

Weekly gatherings for shorties anchored by snacks, prayer and scripture to learn what it looks like to love God and in turn, their short neighbors. Greenhouse is available for kids under 12 on Sunday mornings during Liturgy after the announcements.

Rhythms of Liturgy

  • Worship. Resting in Love itself.
  • Confession. Reflecting and articulating the ways we’ve lived to earn love rather than living out of love.
  • Passing the Peace. Reminding each other we are always in the presence of God’s presence in times of difficulty and beauty.
  • Scripture. Finding ourselves as participants in God’s story.
  • Prayers of the People. Supporting and celebrating with each other through prayer.
  • Eucharist. Remembering that we are inherently lovable and loved by God. Dying to the ways we earn love to be resurrected into the resounding pattern of grace.
  • Benediction.  Being sent back to our city to live the church out of love.

ZAMYN Middle & High Schoolers

ZAMYN is our community of middle and high school students who are full participants in our liturgy and the life of our community. As they move through this vulnerable time of transition we journey with them through one-on-one mentoring, summer camp at Laity Lodge, and super fun socials.

ZAMYN

Formation

Participating with God’s grace in our life long journey as learners. The goal? To be like Jesus.

Midweek Groups

Clusters that meet throughout the week and throughout the city to facilitate spiritual formation and care. A central piece of these groups will be incorporating a Rhythm of Life that we each express in our lives.

More about Midweek Groups

Rhythms of Formation

These are rhythms and practices that we have found helpful in spiritual formation and development.

  • Rhythm of Life. Seasonal goals we set together in order to be spiritually formed together.
  • Lectio Divina. The historic practice of listening to, meditating on and savoring scripture.
  • Prayer of Examen. The Jesuit practice of reflecting on God’s love and presence throughout our day.
  • Fixed Hour Prayer. The Jewish rhythm of prayer throughout the day.

Community

Finding ways for our lives to intersect.  We can do more together than we can do alone. 

Post-Liturgy Lunch

Join us for lunch after liturgy to meet new people and reconnect with our community. We’d love to meet with you.

Partnerships

As a tiny slice of what God is doing in the world, we hope to connect with others locally and globally.

Local Partnerships

We have local partnerships to help us engage and serve the city of Austin. Our current partner is Refugee Services of Texas who welcomes refugees, immigrants, and other displaced people and supports them in integrating and thriving in their new communities. Some of our past partners include Mobile Loaves and Fishes, Inside Books Project, and Foundation for the Homeless. We have our very own Space12 as a vehicle to connect with the surrounding neighborhood of East Austin and we have also started a Good Neighbor Fund to help neighbors of the Vox community.

Global Partnerships

We have global partnerships with organizations in Delhi, India such as the Ashish Centre and the Create Commission. We long to learn from their expression of how the church should be lived out and we also want to generously share any resources that we might be able to offer them.

The Story of Vox

Origins

In 2006 a group of friends set out to learn how to be a church and Vox Veniae was born. Our hope was that we would be reflective of, learn from and reach the beautiful city we lived in. Over the years we moved from campus to Hyde Park and finally now to East Austin.
