DURING THIS PANDEMIC, THINGS ARE CHANGING. SERVICES ARE ONCE AGAIN STARTING UP. SEE DETAILS BELOW. WATCH THIS WEBSITE FOR FURTHER UPDATES. IN THE MEANTIME, PLEASE BE SAFE.
There are currently two Sunday services, one at 9 am and another at 10:30 am. (same Order of Service).
Requirements to attend a service during the pandemic:
Pre-registration (Mon-Thurs, 9am - 1pm) 250-656-5322 or email@example.com
1 or 2 vaccines, wear masks.
In times when there is no pandemic, we have an 8 am Sunday service, a 10 am Sunday service, and on the 3rd Sunday of the month, an 11:30 am Sunday service. We also have a Thursday 10 am service each week.
At 8:00 a.m. a congregation of about 20 people gathers for a ¾ hour service using the Book of Common Prayer. This service is a traditional communion service, with a brief homily, characterized by a quiet and meditative atmosphere.
The largest service is at 10:00 a.m. This service is a family-oriented service with praise music as well as traditional hymns. Children begin the service in the church and then move on to Sunday School and re-enter the church in time to participate in communion. This service often follows the Eucharistic liturgy of the Book of Alternative Services, but occasionally alternates among the ancient liturgy from the Celtic Iona tradition and our own diocese’s more contemporary Island Liturgy. A few times in the year, the children lead the service with readings and more child-friendly music.
(On 3rd Sundays) The 11:30 a.m. service is a smaller, more traditional service that will use the liturgy from the Book of Alternative Services, with hymns supported by our wonderful organist.
We also worship at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday mornings. This communion service has an interactive homily where the 20 or so congregants are encouraged (but not required) to engage in discussing the Gospel lesson. Following the service, there is a Bible study which is attended by many of the congregants as well as others. If your calendar permits, you are welcome to join in the Bible study after the service, or you may choose to go on about your daily responsibilities.
At various times through the year, we also have additional services during the week. These additional services will be listed on the church calendar on this web site. During Advent and Lent, we gather for a contemplative Wednesday evening service at 7 pm. Our desire is to create a sacred space for worship and prayer. Sometimes this is found in silence and contemplation and sometimes in the joyful noise of our children. We welcome you to come worship with us and experience God’s presence in our community!
