What’s worship like?

Sundays at 10:30, a typical service includes music (congregational hymns, instrumentals, choir/soloist), prayer, conversation with our children, Bible readings, a sermon (reflection on our contemporary situation in light of the Bible readings), the Creed, an offering, and a blessing.

To unpack that a bit more:

Music

We like to sing, and hymns are expressions of faith. We sing old historic hymns and put them in dialogue with contemporary hymns. The range of music pretty much reflects the range of belief and questioning among us.

Prayer

We talk to God and listen for God. We pray for each other, and for the world. We usually sing the Lord’s Prayer, and do that while our children are still with us in worship so they can learn these ancient, wise words. In different seasons of the church calendar (Advent, Lent), our prayers sometimes use ritual to move us in different ways.

Children

We continue to listen for God through the voices of our children as they respond to Biblical story and/or Biblical teaching. This is a time in worship when anything can happen, and it often does!

Bible

We hear the story read aloud, opening ourselves to ways God might be speaking to our congregation, our community, and the global situation we find ourselves in.

Sermon

A time for ancient spiritual story to come into dialogue with our own life story – as individuals, as community, as a city, and globally.

Creed

Most Sundays, we invite the congregation to affirm the words of A New Creed [link] as one way of expressing our longings of spirit.

Offering

Financial gifts to enable the ministries of the congregation and the wider United Church of Canada are offered. Our church is funded by the generous support of members and friends.

Blessing

Our worship ends and our time of service begins in the confidence that we are not alone.

"I don’t know if I believe in God or not, but for an hour a week, this is a good place to think about that."
