8:30 am – Holy Eucharist
(Book of Common Prayer)
This service is conducted in the traditional
language found in the Book of Common
Prayer (BCP). This is a quieter, spoken service.
9:45 am – Holy Grounds
After the 8:30 service, people are welcome
to gather for a time of coffee, snacks,
and discussion based on one of the readings of the day.
10:30 am – Holy Eucharist
(Book of Alternative Services)
This celebration of the Eucharist is
in contemporary language. This is our main service
with plenty of music. Children’s programming is offered every Sunday morning during the 10:30am service. Children begin in church and follow their leaders to the Bracken Room after the opening prayers. They will return for communion. Children will using the “Whole People of God” curriculum and generally consider the same Bible readings that are used in church. Any child is welcome to stay with their families and there is a children’s activity area in the main worship space.
From the Sunday of the Canada Day long weekend until the Sunday of the Labour Day long weekend in September, we have just one Sunday morning service at 10 am.
I enjoy the style of worship, especially in a community where no one is anonymous. It feels like a family, which might be intimidating because it’s hard to break into a family, but St Augustine’s is open and welcoming.”
