Worship

Sunday Service at 10:00 am

Wednesday Prayers at 10:00 am


Worship services are currently “hybrid” style. Sunday and Wednesday services have in-person options and Sunday services are livestreamed.  If you would like the Sunday link, please see the “Hello” page of this website.

Please do not feel pressured to attend in person. Your safety is the most important thing.

Below is a description of our worship.


A note about Covid safety

St. Matthew’s takes the safety of our parishioners, guests, and volunteers very seriously. Anyone who enters the building must wear a well-fitting face mask, keep a safe distance, self-screen, and and practice good hand hygiene. For the latest information about the protocols we follow, click here.

Space for in-person worship is limited due to safe physical distancing. To reserve your seat, please call or email us.


At St. Matthew’s we believe that worship is the joyous responsibility of the whole community and not just the clergy. Many of our parishioners participate in the leadership of our services each week. God calls us all to diverse forms of ministry and we use our gifts in many different ways.

Our worship always includes prayer, Bible readings, and participation in the Eucharist. You do not need to be an Anglican to receive Communion in our church—all of God’s children are welcome here.

Near the middle of the service there is a sermon. It’s generally 8-10 minutes in length, and is delivered in a conversational style (i.e. not read word-for-word) from the middle of the church aisle.

Almost all of the words of our service are printed in our bulletin, so you don’t have to worry about getting lost.

The Sunday bulletin is reproduced in a PowerPoint which is visible when viewing the livestream, so you can follow along from home.


Children’s programming is currently suspended and will resume when it is safe to do so.

Church School, for children ages 4-10, occurs during the 10:30 am service in the Church Hall.

Children aged 11 and older are invited to join one of our Youth Groups. Leaders meet youth group members in the youth rooms (adjoining the Parish Hall) at 10:30. Youth return to the church in time to have Communion.


Coffee hour is currently suspended and will resume when it is safe to do so.

There is a time for coffee, juice, and goodies after the 10:30 am service. This is a time when we connect as a community, taking time to visit with old friends and meeting our visitors.
