Sunday mornings, 8 AM

This is a Rite One service of Holy Eucharist. That means it is in the traditional King's English.  It's also quiet and contemplative.  It's a wonderful way to start a Sunday.

Sunday mornings, 10 am  

This service of Holy Eucharist uses contemporary language, with music and hymns.  

Our church school program for kids in grades K-9 also begins at 10:00.  Kids begin the service with parents and then leave for their program right after the Collect.  They reenter the worship service at the Peace and receive Communion with their families.  We also provide a Nanny for little ones if parents feel they are too young to be in church.

Please know that we love the gentle noises of all God's children and that kids of all ages are always welcome in church - we have coloring books, puppets and quiet toys in the church narthex (lobby) for their entertainment.  

 We gather after the service for refreshments in our parish hall.

Wednesday evenings: Holy Eucharist at 7 pm.

This is a contemporary service and includes healing prayer for those who wish to receive it.  

Holy Eucharist at meadow Ridge, first Sunday of each month at 2 pm

We meet at Meadow Ridge, our Redding Continuing Care Retirement Community, in Georgetown. We've begun to team up with Pastor Martha Klein-Larsen from St. Mark's in New Canaan and are pleased to share these services with St. Mark's.  All are welcome to attend -- whether or not you may be a resident of Meadow Ridge.  

Celtic Communion: Third Saturday of the month at 5 pm

Our Celtic service is poetic and lilting, with an emphasis on Creation language.  It includes Communion and an interactive homily for all ages.  It's designed to be a great choice for families whose kids play Sunday sports, as well as for lovers of all things Celtic. 

 

Compline:  Second Sunday of the month at 7 pm

Compline (COM-plinn) is a half-hour long, meditative prayer service at the end of a day.  We often use the liturgy from the New Zealand Prayer Book, which is Creation-based and poetic (actually it sounds downright Celtic).  All are welcome to join in the prayer and to soak in the silence.
