We use The Book of Common Prayer to guide our worship. All Episcopal Churches use this prayer book, creating a sense of comfort in knowing what worship will look like on any given Sunday, in any given Episcopal church. The Book of Common Prayer is a treasure chest full of devotional and teaching resources for individuals and congregations, but it is also the primary symbol of our unity, as Armentrout and Slocum note in their An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church, that “Anglican liturgical piety has been rooted in the Prayer Book tradition since the publication of the first English Prayer Book in 1549.”
We, who are many and diverse, come together in Christ through our worship, our common prayer. The prayer book, most recently revised in 1979, contains our liturgies, our prayers, our theological documents, and much, much more.
Our worship at Christ Church follows the liturgy of the Episcopal Church, while still creating space for creativity and authenticity. While our worship and music style is traditional, we are a progressive and relaxed community. Don’t worry about your kids chattering or babies crying, to us it is a joyful noise! Don’t worry about what you should wear or how you look, you are welcome just as you are. Your thoughts are welcome, your doubts are welcome. We’re all in this together!
