The Saturday evening service is informal, intimate, and held in the parish hall. It is well-suited to people who prefer smaller groups of people or who cannot physically handle standing up and walking to the front for communion. It is also an excellent choice for families with small children, due to the casual atmosphere.
Sunday morning worship, which has a traditional, somewhat formal atmosphere, uses a variety of liturgies (orders of worship) and is supplemented by our choirs and instrumental groups. We gather in the larger worship space, called the nave for Sunday worship.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered at all worship services.
Worship is also held on Wednesday evenings during Lent and Advent at 7:00 p.m.
