Sunday worship is the center of our life. Yet at the center is diversity in spirit and ways we worship God. Between the different services offered and numerous opportunities for both adults and children to participate and grow their faith, we strive for all to not just hear that they’re welcome, but to truly feel it, and to experience the grace of God.

Worship Schedule

8:00 AM — Worship in the Chapel

A quiet, contemplative communion service, with prayers, Scripture reading, and sermon. All are welcome to participate fully in worship and communion. There is no music at the 8 a.m. service. It lasts approximately 40 minutes.

9:00 AM — Worship in the Sanctuary*

An informal, innovative service, with prayers from a variety of Anglican and ecumenical traditions, and joyful music. All are welcome to participate fully in worship and communion. Children are always welcome in worship; for those who wish, there is children’s chapel during the first half of the service, with lively music, prayers, and interactive Bible stories. The service lasts approximately 50 minutes.

Come for refreshments and conversation in between the services. Children are welcome to play. Refreshments are served throughout the 10:00 hour.

11:00 AM — Worship in the Sanctuary*

A classic Episcopal service from the Book of Common Prayer. It includes chanted psalms, Scripture readings, sermon, and Holy Communion. All are welcome to participate fully in worship and communion. Children are welcome; if they wish, they may attend children’s chapel during the first half of the service. The service lasts approximately one hour.

7:00 PM — Contemplative Prayer in the Chapel

A weekly gathering on Sunday evenings for those who value silence, beauty and contemplation in prayer.  The  45-minute service includes prayers, poetry, scripture, chanting and 20 minutes of silent prayer. Led by members of the community, this service welcomes all who find their way to the chapel entrance on 42nd Street. Though our prayer includes silence, our leave-taking on Sunday evenings is often filled with conversation and laughter.
