Sunday Worship Schedule at St. Paul's Anglican Church

 8:30 am Eucharist -  Our 8:30 Service is a traditional 1962 Book of Common Prayer Rite for the Holy Eucharist (page 230 in the Book of Alternative Services).  The Service is 1 hour in length.  The theme, Readings from the Holy Scripture, and Preacher are all the same for both the 8:30 and 10:00 Services.

10:00 am Contemporary Eucharist - A lively contemporary language Eucharist from the Book of Alternative Services with music, Nursery, Sunday school and a special prayer team. "Triple C" Service: On the fourth Sundays of the month, we share a special time together that is Christ-centred, Creative, and Compact. The Service is followed by a time of fellowship with refreshments (coffee, tea, juice and sometimes more).

Wednesday Service - 9:30 am Holy Eucharist: first to third Wednesdays from the Grey Booklet (a supplementary resource to the BAS), fourth Wednesday BCP, fifth Wednesday Celtic Liturgy.

Spring/Summer Service times - We have a single Sunday service time of 9:30 AM during July and August.

Communion: We invite everyone to the Lordís Table.  To receive  the Bread, extend palms, crossed and upward; when offered the chalice, please  assist in guiding it by holding the bottom edge with thumb and fingers.  If you prefer, you may receive only the bread or the wine.  We believe Christ is fully present in either element.  If you prefer not to receive the Sacrament, you may  ask for a blessing in the traditional manner of crossing your hands over your chest.

Our Worship at St. Paul's is Ö

bullet

Biblically. Each service contains four scripture readings, one each from the Old Testament, Psalms, Epistles and Gospels.  Much of the rest of the service is taken directly from the   Bible.

bullet

Sacramental. We believe that God is actively present in the world and in us.  In the sacraments we realize Godís presence and favour towards us.  Through the sacraments our sins are forgiven, our minds are enlightened, our hearts stirred and our wills strengthened.  The two primary sacraments are Baptism and Eucharist.  Other sacraments are Confirmation, Ordination, Holy Matrimony, Reconciliation of a Penitent, and Unction or anointing of the sick.

bullet

A Celebration of God's Love bringing to remembrance the mighty acts of God on our behalf throughout history; make Godís presence an immediate and personal reality; foster unity and community with all Godís people and equip us to serve God in the world.

bullet

Highly participatory. The clergy and congregation share together actively in prayer and response throughout the service.  Participation in our Eucharist is open to all who are baptized.

bullet

Poetic in Nature. Words, music and actions produce reverence and beauty as well as relevance and community.

bullet

Both Ancient and Modern. The basic forms of our services were in place by the third century.  Although they have undergone many revisions since then to meet the needs of different times and places, we value tradition and our connection with those who preceded us in faith. Our worship is thus both Catholic and Reformed.
