Music & Liturgy


What is Liturgy?


Liturgy literally means “the work of the people.” It’s the pattern of worship, prayer, and practices that shape our life together. Though it has changed a bit over the centuries, the liturgy that guides our worship is a close descendent of the original Book of Common Prayer, published in England in 1549. The Anglican pattern of worship combines ancient and contemporary elements; it blends written prayers and responses with opportunities for personal and extemporaneous prayer and worship.

Music


We believe that ultimately the beauty of our music is a reflection of our love for God and others.  We sing to proclaim God’t truth: we sing to him in adoration, and we sing to each other to remind ourselves of his character and work.  The Psalms tell us to “sing to God a new song,” and so we sing music new and old, convinced that both can bring us fresh revelations of God’s Spirit.

If you join us for our service, this will give you a head start on the music.
