Liturgical style and practice

Sunday mornings begin with a spoken service at 8:00 am followed by a very popular family service at 9:15. Our 10:00 service features several of our choirs accompanied by the heavenly sound of our new organ. We at St. Andrew’s are fortunate to have a variety of services offered throughout the week as well. Overall, we are a somewhat traditional, “broad” (neither high nor low) church. We use the Book of Common Prayer and rely on music as we worship, mainly traditional Anglican choral music found in the Hymnal 1982; we also use some LEVAS and Taize. Especially at the 10:00 Sunday service, we use chanted psalms and Eucharistic prayer.


St. Andrew’s attracts a diversity of people to join our congregation.Although the congregation is predominantly white, we do have agood representation of people of color, including in lay leadershiproles. Similarly, the congregation is, like many churches, primarilymade up of older individuals, but we do have many families withchildren and youth, as well as young(er) adults. We have a longtrack record of being welcoming and inclusive to LGBTQ+ mem-bers.

One of the greatest strengths of our congregation lies in the strength and vibrancy of our key ministries.From the wealth of opportunities for connection and engagement in our parish, the following ministries are considered to be the heart of our community: ministry with families and children, music and performing arts, social justice ministry, and the Breakfast Program at St. Andrews.

Our longevity as a stalwart congregation hinges on both our strong core membership from multi-generational families and our relatively stable financial situation.


St. Andrew’s needs to work to cultivate connections within our existing membership, building a sense of tight-knit community for all members, including long-timers and newcomers. We believe that there are opportunities here to reach more people, but this must be done in concert with a strategy to build hospitality and welcome into our congregational culture.
