Liturgical style and practice

Our liturgical style can safely be described as being in the center of current practices and is of course centered on the Eucharist—The Rite I service is a quiet service with a full sermon attended by a small and dedicated congregation. The Rite II service has been a sung service characterized and energized by the music of our vibrant and growing choir of volunteer and paid singers. Our liturgies are mostly drawn from the BCP (and authorized resources), and our hymns are primarily from the 1982 Hymnal. We have been nourished by occasional Evensong and Compline as well. We currently stream our Sunday morning services on Facebook.
