Worship in an Episcopal church traditionally takes place on a Sunday when we gather together in community.

We participate in creative, energizing worship to praise and thank God, to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ and to pray for ourselves and others. As Jesus invited us, we gather around a family meal table with bread and wine, to celebrate Jesus’ risen presence and to be renewed and strengthened for the work God gives us to do. Worship affirms our faith, reconciles us together, and prepares us to minister to the world.

Liturgy

Public Worship

Public worship (or liturgy) is how the unity of our members is most fully expressed. An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church (Church Publishing, 2000) explains that “liturgy expresses the church’s identity and mission, including the church’s calling to invite others and to serve with concern for the needs of the world.” Many liturgies of The Episcopal Church are included in the Book of Common Prayer which gives worship a familiar feel, no matter where you go.
