At St. John’s, worship is central to our life and mission, and it is what we do best. Our worship is ordered by the Book of Common Prayer, and is colored with ancient and modern poetry, music, and prayers that speak to an eternal God and to the timeless concerns of humankind.
First time visitors will quickly notice that our worship is participatory by nature. We stand, sit, and kneel in prayer and praise together as a body, and we sing hymns and chant psalms as a congregation, led by our choir. Our members light candles, carry the processional cross, read scripture, lead us in prayers, and serve wine at communion.
Such active, participatory worship is a hallmark of the Anglican tradition, and we invite you to join with us as we seek an encounter with God at the intersection of ancient forms of worship and contemporary concerns and issues.
