Christ Church is a casual, joyful and welcoming place to worship. We follow the Rite II liturgy from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. While we draw from the riches of the 1982 Hymnal during worship, we also incorporate a variety of praise music from other hymnals and contemporary artists.

Our worship is centered around Holy Communion. This is where we come to God and open our hearts and minds to Jesus. It is through sharing in the bread and wine, the Body and Blood of the redeemer and open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We also offer healing anointing with oil during communion. Intercessory prayer also marks the rhythm of our faith community. Our parishioners share their stories of faith and request prayers from the community. A healing prayer team is available at the back of the church after the service to pray for anyone who wants prayer with laying on of hands.

In addition to our Sunday 10:15 a.m. service, we offer a Wednesday Evening Meditative Eucharist at 6:30 p.m. This service offers peaceful mid-week break from stresses of modern life. It is followed by a potluck Supper.

Finally, children are central to our worship. We offer our “All God’s Children service at 9:00 a.m. on the first and third Sundays of the month, geared towards young and special needs kids.

Children are also welcome to be present at worship for our principal 10:15 am service – we offer coloring supplies and stickers on the Children’s Welcome Table – or they are welcome to join our Sunday School program that gathers after the Gospel Reading.

If your youngest wishes to stay with you, there is plenty of space to allow them to move around at the back of the church.  We hope you will find our church a warm and welcoming place to worship!

Every Sunday we project our worship songs and the liturgical instructions for ease of use, to see a sample service click on the link below for the Powerpoint slides:
