Worship With Us

Our Worship Schedule

The prayer book is a banquet. Let us keep the feast.
Frank Griswold, 25th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

Our worship, in Word and Sacrament, follows the tradition of the Book of Common Prayer, first published at the English Reformation in 1549 and revised most recently by the Episcopal Church in 1979. Prayer Book worship assumes that our hearts and minds need to be transformed daily, weekly, and completely, and our Sunday liturgies are the starting point for that journey.

As we worship, God softens, comforts, and challenges our hearts and minds, allowing us to be transformed by his love and forgiveness, made known in Jesus Christ.

We believe in an experience of worship that allows us to move beyond being mere consumers, to becoming participants in worship, not just on Sunday, but in our everyday lives. Holy Communion is central to our Sunday worship, and our liturgies are enhanced by our rich tradition of Anglican choral music. We hope that you will join us.

Parishioners are vital participants in our worship services, from children serving as acolytes to adult members of the congregation taking part as intercessors, lectors, Eucharistic ministers and visitors, altar guild, ushers, and greeters. Learn more about Worship Volunteers here.

Bringing the Eucharist to the homebound is also an important piece of our worship offering. Indeed, our lay Eucharistic Visitors administered communion 1735 times to homebound parishioners and those at the Nathaniel Witherell nursing home and other town facilities during 2017. Learn more about Pastoral Care Volunteers here
