Worship & Music

Worshiping God is the foundation of all we do. Our liturgy has its roots in practices as old as Christianity, and this ancient liturgy reminds us of the timeless mystery of God. Our worship expresses the concerns and the joys that we experience today. In our worship, we seek to find God in ourselves — in our stories and in the world we experience — and we offer our lives to the God in whose image we are created.

Our worship follows The Book of Common Prayer that connects us with Anglicans from around the world. We wrestle with the challenge of God’s word, we share Christ’s presence in the sacrament of Holy Communion, we experience the love of God in community with others, and we leave prepared to love and serve God in the world around us.

Our primary worship services are at 8:30am and 10:45am on Sunday mornings. At the 8:30am service, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist (Rite II) in a contemplative service without music. At the 10:45am service, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist (Rite II) with music from our organist and choir.DSC_0106 In addition, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist from the New Zealand Prayer Book at 5:30pm on Sundays. At our Sunday services some parishioners dress more formally and some parishioners have on blue jeans. However you chose to dress, you will not be out of place.

On Wednesdays, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist at 12:05pm in the chapel. This service includes prayers for healing and unction.

We celebrate the Eucharist accompanied by a bluegrass band at our annual bluegrass Mass and parish picnic. We also hold special services with other congregations, including in 2013 a combined celebration of Pentecost with Christ the King Lutheran Church.
