Christmas Eve Service

Worship at Christ Church Parish

Worship is the heartbeat of all that we do here at Christ Church Parish. By gathering both in-person and virtually each week, we pray the liturgy, sing beautiful music, and receive the sacraments, together as a community of faith.

Our worship is open to anyone and everyone.

We strive to be a community where there are no insiders and outsiders, only pilgrims on a journey together seeking to discover what God has instore for us as disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ.

At Christ Church Parish we have three services every weekend all centered around the Holy Eucharist. No matter where you are on your faith journey, you are welcome here and you are welcome to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion with us.

Altar prepared

Saturday 5 PM

Our Saturday evening service is our most casual service. This is the service where we will often sing more contemporary music and use a variety of liturgies from Anglican Churches spread across the world. This service was developed many years ago to accommodate people who simply wanted to walk in from the beach or their day out on the town and come to worship.

Sunday 8 AM

This service is held in the Mary Chapel each Sunday and uses the oldest liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer, Rite One. This service is for those who love the old language of the liturgy and relish a more contemplative worship experience without singing or fanfare. There is no music at this service.

Sunday 10 AM

Our late Sunday morning service is our largest in terms of attendance. In this service we use the contemporary liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer, Rite Two, sing the music most familiar to Episcopalians and enjoy the beautiful musical offerings of the Christ Church Parish choir. Normally if we are going to have special celebrations or feature the sacrament of Holy Baptism, it will be during this service.
