How We Worship

As Episcopalians, we are a church that is both ancient and (post) modern, and this is reflected in all we do at St. Andrew's.  Our worship draws on prayers and practices from earliest Christian communities and is shaped in the Anglican tradition with elements that are faithfully, yet creatively re-imagined.  Our music includes both ancient and contemporary chants and hymns.  Much of our prayers are taken from the Book of Common Prayer, a compilation of prayers and forms for worship that give our services a sense of beauty and timelessness, while at the same time creating a bridge for God’s presence in our everyday lives. 

The central act of our worship is what we call the Eucharist, or Holy Communion, which gathers us in a thanksgiving celebration of the Last Supper with Jesus and his disciples over bread and wine.  We celebrate Eucharist most Sundays and invite you to experience the gift of grace in this sacred meal shared together.
