Everyone is warmly invited to join us in
worship and community life
BECOME A PART OF OUR FAMILY
Our worship services in alternative prayer is an important part of how we come together. The Anglican Church follows a traditional set of prayers from two books:
Book of Common Prayer (BCP): based on 16th Century rites
Book of Alternative Services (BAS): an updated version published in 1985
The Eucharist (communion) is offered during our Sunday service. All that are baptized are welcome to partake or come forward for a blessing.
SERVICE AT ST. JOHN'S
SUNDAY 11:00 AM
This service includes hymns sung from the blue book in the pews.
There is a leaflet, listing the various parts of the service. People may also choose to follow along in the green book in the pew.
After the service, there is time at the end of the church for conversation, coffee, tea, and baked goodies.
Last Sunday every month is Morning Prayer
Come as you are!
What to Expect
There's no dress code. If you don't yet feel ready to participate in one of our services, you are welcome to simply come in to watch and listen. Please be welcome to find a seat anywhere (they are not reserved). If you are here for our Sunday 11 am service, there is always coffee, tea and a chance to chat afterwards in the church. Please stay if you have time.
"Anglican services follow a pattern that begins with the gathering of the community, then listening to and reflecting on the Scriptures. The community then brings the needs of the world and the community to God in prayer, and the group partakes in the holy meal of bread and wine [the Eucharist], before being sent forth into the mission of daily life." -Anglican Church of Canada
Throughout the year, St. John's Church follows the Six Seasons of the Church - Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost - with a set list of Bible readings for the year. The liturgical cycle divides the year into a series of seasons, each with their own mood and theological emphases that are reflected in our chosen readings.
