Service Structure

The service runs for about 1 hour.

A typical service includes the following elements:

  • The Ministers and Warden will appear on the stage, and the congregation stands.
  • We sing 2-3 hymns; (if you don’t feel comfortable singing, or don’t know the hymns, you can just stand with us and observe);
  • Following the prayer book, we read the daily verses of Scripture, and praying a Prayer of Preparation and the Collect for the day.
  • We hear the Bible read;
  • We stand together as we declare what we believe in the words of a common creed;
  • We hear the Bible passage explained and applied to our lives (usually around 20 mins);
  • We often hear a short update from one of the ministry areas of our church;
  • We participate in Holy Communion.
