WORSHIP

Sunday

8:00 am – If you are an early riser, if you like to skip the fuss, if starting your week on the wing and with a prayer appeals, the 8:00 am service may be for you! Built around the mystical sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, this service is a “Quiet Said Worship” with no music. The Healing Ministry offers prayer for individuals during this service every third Sunday of the month

8:45 am – “Rise and Shine” is a relaxed service geared towards families with young children. The service takes place in our warm and inviting Chapel which has soft chairs, carpet and plenty of cuddly stuffed animals.  Age appropriate church and love themed songs are sung accompanied by rhythm instruments in a freestyle way.  Echo-prayers, bells, sea shells and pictures help us through the liturgy, and children fully participate in the service. There is a brief family friendly homily and the Holy Eucharist is celebrated using fresh pita bread that is broken and shared.

10:15 am – This traditional celebration of the Holy Eucharist contains music primarily of recognized masters of church composition. This ranges from plainchants that go back to the origins of the Christian church, traditional Anglican chants, anthems, motets and carols from the Renaissance and High Baroque periods to jubilant and rhythmic new compositions by contemporary masters. Regardless of its style and era, all music is chosen for its quality and spiritual depth. The Healing Ministry offers prayer for individuals during this service every third Sunday of the month.
