“Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.”
- Psalm 141:2
The worship of God lies at the center of all that we do at Christ Church and forms the foundation of our Christian community. Saint Matthew, in fact, reminds us that, before setting out to fulfill the great commission, the first act of the disciples was worship itself.
Each week, each day even, we gather in prayer to offer our gratitude to God from whom all life proceeds. And it is from this great well of gratitude that our lives and ministries – our hospitality and fellowship, our service to the poor within our community, and our formation as Christians – collectively flow.
As a parish within the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church, our worship is grounded in the rich liturgical heritage of The Book of Common Prayer, expressing a worship tradition rooted in two thousand years of Christian practice. Whether we gather for a formal Choral Eucharist sung by one of our liturgical choirs or the simple daily recitation of Morning or Evening Prayer in Saint Margaret's Chapel, the rhythm of daily worship underpins our life. We invite you to worship with us and experience what makes us who we are.
