Worshipping God together is the most transforming thing we do together. Worshipping God is probably the most important thing that we do. When we worship, we spend time in God’s Presence together, receiving His gifts of Grace and reminding ourselves and each other of the power, love and goodness we find in His Presence, and finally reaffirming our desire to carry and share that Presence wherever we go.
The Anglican way of worship has long treasured the way God gives Himself to us in the way Jesus taught us to share and consecrate Bread and Wine. This is called by many names; Communion, the Lord’s Supper, the Eucharist or Mass. By whichever name it is called, it is a wonderful gift of God’s presence to us, and when we worship together we will almost always receive God’s presence in this way.
We have the following regular times of worship:
Sunday 09:00 – a service of Worship and Holy Communion, with Children’s Church
This is our largest service, full of families and children. Our musical worship seeks to remind us of our hunger for God’s presence, and thanksgiving for His always responding to our hunger. There is a provision for children to learn about the Bible, to sing and to pray to God in the hall next door during about half of the total service.
Sunday 07:30 – a service of Worship and Holy Communion
At this service we enjoy and use the many visual and verbal symbols that we have inherited from previous generations. The music is often based on songs that are familiar to those who have worshipped in the Anglican way for many years.
Tuesday 10:00 – a time of Prayer and Intimacy with God
When we gather to pray on a Tuesday, we often have an idea of what we will pray about and what God will do – but just as often will we discover as we pray, listen and respond, that God had some other gift He wanted to give to us. The prayer service is informal, with a focus on listening together to what God is saying to each of us, and to us together, and responding accordingly in our intercession. If there is something you carry; a hope, a dream, a fear, an injury, or merely the desire for ‘more’ of God – come join us; there are no expectations on those who come to contribute or participate or share, though it is welcome – but we do have great expectations on God to surprise us.
Wednesday 09:00 – Mid-week service of Worship and Holy Communion
It is a great blessing to stop in the course of the week and receive again the gifts God has prepared for us. This service is not as large in attendance as our Sunday services; some of us particularly treasure “coming up for air” in the middle of the week, and some of us come to this service because our life situations prevent us from worshipping on Sunday mornings.
