How we worship

At Church of Our Saviour, we seek to make worship accessible to everyone by creating a comforting, engaging and inspiring atmosphere. Regular corporate worship is central to what we do and who we are. It is about coming together to acknowledge the holiness of God, hear God’s Word, offer prayer and celebrate the sacraments, outward and visible signs of an inward and spiritual grace. Worship services are liturgical, following a set pattern of prayers with readings and responses which encourage active participation and the celebration of Communion.

Our worship is grounded by the Book of Common Prayer and the Episcopal Church traditions. Scripture readings follow the Revised Common Lectionary and the daily office readings.

Episcopal Beliefs

The Baptismal Covenant is the cornerstone of our faith. With God’s help, we proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ; we seek to serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself; and we strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.

Rooted in tradition, Episcopalians believe in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit as expressed in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. The Episcopal Church believes the Holy Scriptures, commonly called the Bible, to be the Word of God, written as inspired by God, and interpreted as inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Music

Music is a centerpiece of our worship at our 10am Sunday service and other special services.

Schedule

Daily Prayer

Daily prayer is at the heart and history of Episcopal worship. We gather for Daily Morning Prayer every Wednesday morning at 8:30 am.  On occasions, we celebrate the offices of Noonday Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline.

Special Services

The Episcopal Church has cycles of feasts and holy days – dependent upon the movable date of Easter Day and upon the fixed date of Christmas, December 25th. These feast days are special celebrations at Our Saviour, and we also mark other feast and special celebrations with special liturgies.

Baptism, which we call an initiation rite, is available for infant through adults. Likewise, Our Saviour offers a peaceful setting for the Celebration and Blessing of Marriage.
