As a parish of The Episcopal Church, our liturgy is based upon the Book of Common Prayer. The Holy Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is at the heart of our worship, and is ordinarily celebrated twice every Sunday morning. At each celebration we listen to readings from the Bible, hear a sermon proclaimed, and offer and receive the bread and wine. At the Sung Eucharist (usually at 10 a.m.), hymns and service music are sung by all, and the choir leads our praise and thanksgiving with anthems and psalms.
Children are an integral part of our worship and are welcome at every service. (Childcare is also available for younger kids during the 10 o'clock service.) Most Sundays during the school year, we offer a 9:30 a.m. Children's Matins service, followed by church school activities, after which children join their families in the Sanctuary at the Offertory of the 10 a.m. service.
Other worship offerings at Christ Church include occasional Evensongs, seasonal services, and pastoral offices such as weddings and funerals.
