Our worship

Archdeacon Patricia Malcolm reads the Gospel.

At Christ Church, worship is an active experience by people of all ages on pilgrimage with Jesus Christ. We speak, sing, kneel, stand, pray together.

As Episcopalians, we are blessed with a great resource for the worship of God, The Book of Common Prayer, which provides eloquent orders of service and beautiful prayers for all occasions.

Our principal act of worship is the Holy Eucharist, celebrated on Sundays at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., and on Wednesdays at 12:10 p.m. The word “Eucharist” is derived from a Greek word meaning “Thanksgiving.” Thus, the Holy Eucharist is our communal expression of thanks to God for the great gift of Christ Jesus.

At the Eucharist we gather as people gather for a festive banquet. Together, we partake of the word of God as holy scripture is read and preached. We gather at the Lord’s table and consume Christ, the Bread of Life, in the sacrament of bread and wine. By God’s grace, we seek to become what we eat: bread for a God-starved world.
