About our Worship Service

 

We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.

Our worship service is a fairly traditional/blended Presbyterian service. Sunday worship starts at 10:00 a.m. with the greeting and announcements spoken to the congregation by the Duty Elder. Special music is provided most Sundays by our Organist/Choir Director and our talented choir. The children also contribute musically to our worship. Others are welcome to offer their musical gifts in worship, and often do. Each service a member of the church takes part in leading the worship by proclaiming the Scriptures, and one of our young people leads the congregation in the call to worship. After every service, all are welcomed downstairs to the hall for a time of fellowship and treats. During the Christmas season the Sunday School puts on a pageant which is always well received, and we hold two candlelight services Christmas Eve; one at 4:30 specifically geared to young children, and another service at 7:30.

We celebrate the sacrament of communion once a month – usually on the first Sunday of the month. Children are welcome to take part in the communion service and return from Sunday School to join with the whole church family in this important sacrament. Please check our calendar page for the schedule of communion services.

The children are with us for the first part of the service and then after a children’s story they go to their Sunday School classes. We are a “Leading With Care” community which means that we take extra precautions to ensure that young children and vulnerable adults are never in risky situations. All of our Sunday School teachers and other leaders in the church have had Police Checks.
