Worship

Please see the Service Times page for a short description of our weekly service schedule.


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.


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.


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.
