Worship engages our intellects and senses as we hear the Word of God, celebrate the Eucharist, and prepare to carry out the Gospel of Jesus in our lives. We gather at the Table, our altar, for the Eucharist or communion. As a liturgical church all participate fully in worship; liturgical means, literally, the work of the people.
8 am Sunday Eucharist
This service is quiet and contemplative. An ancient Anglican order of worship, Rite I, is used. Time for personal reflection and prayer is included. Afterwards people gather in the Parish Hall for coffee or tea.
10 am Sunday Eucharist
This service follows Rite II. Music is an integral part of the service. The choir leads the congregation in singing hymns of praise accompanied on the organ. Babies from the nursery and children from the Sunday School join us at the Peace, adding their own voices to worship. There is time for personal reflection and prayer. Afterwards people gather in the Parish Hall for coffee hour and fellowship.
10 am Thursday Eucharist
This service takes place in the Memorial Room as a small group of friends, old and new, gather to share the Eucharist. It is followed by Bible study of the readings for the week.
