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
@ Vesper (3106 E 14 1/2 St)
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.
Participating with God’s grace in our life long journey as learners. The goal? To be like Jesus.
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.

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.
We have global partnerships with organizations in Delhi, India such as the Ashish Centre. 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
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.

Over the course of our journey as a church community, our values have surfaced to the top. They capture who we are and shape who we hope to become.
From our Navigation Team to our Admin Team, everyone contributes to who we are as a church. We strive to hear and follow God’s leading for our community.

Journey of Empathy & LGBTQ Diversity
One of our values at Vox is Empathy within diversity. This means modeling Christ’s life of standing with those that are different than us, especially those who have been marginalized by society and religious institutions.
LGBTQ Journey Description
We understand the value and benefit for our church to being a part of something larger than ourselves. In the summer of 2011, Vox became a part of the ECC denomination.
