Sunday Nights at St. Augustine’s

We have created a series of Sunday evening worship services called Sunday Nights @ St. Augustine’s. Each will offer something unique and everyone is welcome to attend.

 

Sunday, October 30 at 6 PM – Table Eucharist: We will gather around a rectangular table (large enough for everyone) in the Hall or Crypt and enjoy a simple meal together. An informal liturgy of the word will be followed by a simplified service of Holy Eucharist which will be celebrated in the intimacy of the same table where we have just eaten our meal together. The service will involve singing and (for those who may wish to participate) sharing.

 

Sunday, November 13 at 6 PM – Contemporary Expression: This service will be quite similar to the services formerly held on Saturday evening. The music will be contemporary in style, we will worship in the church and receive the Eucharist from a table near the chancel steps. Instead of hearing the same sermon which was preached on Sunday morning, this service will feature a ‘witness talk’ – a story of discipleship from one of the laity in our congregation. Following that, a brief clergy response. The service will be recognizably Anglican, but more intimate and informal.

 

Sunday, December 18 at 6 PM – Taize: This style of worship has emerged from the Taize community in France where thousands of people visit each year for spiritual refreshment. The songs are simple and beautiful and serve to focus both heart and mind on God. Taize services include songs, psalms, sung responses, readings, silent meditation and intercession. Taize worship nourishes the soul through quietness and repetition.
