Elements of Worship

The Book of Common Prayer

We worship using the 1928 Book of Common Prayer

 

The Book of Common Prayer is one of the most influential works in the English language. While many of us are familiar with such famous works as, “Dearly beloved, we are gathered together here…” or “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,” we may not know that they originated with The Book of Common Prayer, which first appeared in 1549 during the English Reformation. Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, organized the traditional Western liturgy from Latin into an authoritative manual of Christian worship throughout England. As time passed, new forms of the book were made to suit the many English-speaking nations: first in Scotland, then in the new United States, and eventually wherever the British Empire extended its arm. 

Word And Sacrament

The essential elements of Christian Worship require that the Word of God is faithfully proclaimed and the Sacraments of the Church duly administered.

Can I Partake In The Eucharist?

As Anglicans, we allow anyone who is a baptized Christian to take Communion with us. 

 

We simply ask that you remember that the Sacrament of our Lord’s Body and Blood is a holy and sacred event. Therefore, come to the table willingly, thankfully, in reverence, and with a clean conscience. 

 

Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs

As a part of our worship, we sing, giving thanks to God and praising His name.
