Worship God

[Luke 4:16]

He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read.

[Acts 2:42]

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 

Worship has two purposes. First it is to make present in Word and Sacrament the saving mystery of Christ. Second, it offers us an opportunity to respond to that saving encounter. At St Peter and St Paul, our emphasis is on encountering the transcendent majesty of God. You will be struck by the holiness of the presence of God in worship.

Our services are drawn from the Book of Common Prayer. This is a book of traditional and modern prayers. It is 95 percent a direct quotation or a paraphrase of a passage from Scripture. We use it like we use the Hymnal, so our voices will be united in prayer as they are in music.

The readings of Scripture on any given Sunday are taken from a prepared list called the Lectionary. Every three years the entire New Testament will be read along with the major part of the Old Testament. Sermons spring directly from one of the four lessons of Scripture and invite the listener to explore ways to apply Scripture to their own situations through personal prayer.

We are a sacramental church. That means we believe God acts through the material world to convey his grace.  Join us on Saturdays at 5pm or on Sundays at 8am, 9am, or 11am.

We invite you to Come and See!
