How We Worship

Sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the whole earth.
Sing to the Lord and bless his name;
proclaim the good news of his salvation from day to day.
Ascribe to the Lord, you families of the peoples;
Ascribe to the Lord the honour due his name;
bring offerings and come into his courts.
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness;
let the whole earth tremble before him.
Psalm 96:1-2, 7-9

Worship of God is central to everything we do in this Parish, whether meeting in one of our committees, in one of our Bible Study groups, or even preparing for our annual Christmas bazaar! There is always a sense that what we are about is the glory of God who has done and is doing amazing things in our midst.

Corporate worship, typically on Sunday, takes on various forms and uses various resources. Most Sundays at 8 AM there is a said “traditional language” Holy Eucharist alternating between the Book of Common Prayer (p. 67) and the Book of Alternative Service (p. 230). We gather in our Chapel which gives us a sense of intimacy and contributes to the feeling of community that is vibrant and obvious! Breakfast out afterwards is a hallmark for many in this community.

At 10:30 on the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist from the Book of Common Prayer. On the fourth Sunday of the month we have Morning Prayer, alternating between the BCP and the BAS.  The other two Sundays are celebrations of the Holy Eucharist from the BAS (p. 185). After the 10:30 liturgy, an informal time afterwards in our Parish Hall contributes to the closeness that exists in our Parish. This feeling carries over as many people enjoy a meal out before heading home.

After the weekly 10 am Bible Study Wednesday morning in Sarnia we share in an informal Eucharist around the table.  Lunch out afterwoards is something to which we all look forward. 

Regardless of books or rites used, you will experience worship that is vibrant, relevant and meaningful.  Come see for yourself!
