Join us for Worship!
The Holy Eucharist, the gathering together in worship to hear God’s Word, to join together in the prayers, and to share in the Divine Mystery that is Holy Communion, is the very core of our community. It reveals the truth that we are one Body in Christ. It strengthens and renews us as we walk out our Red Doors and into the world to share God’s peace and love with everyone we meet. Here at St. Alban’s all persons are invited and welcome to worship with us, to come to God’s table to share in communion or receive a blessing, and to assist our efforts in the greater community to proclaim God’s word.
Schedule of Services
7:30 am Holy Eucharist - A quiet, spoken service (no music or hymns) using traditional language (thee, thou, etc) which reflects the beauty and piety of the Elizabethan era. It is often known as a “traditional” Episcopal service. Holy Communion is offered.
9:00 am and 10:45 am Holy Eucharist - Music, hymns, and singing , whether from one of our two adult choirs, our children’s choir, or congregational singing, distinguish our 9:00 am and 10:45 am services from the more traditional 7:30 am service. These services use more modern, contemporary and inclusive language. Holy Communion is offered at both. Sunday School is offered at the 9:00 am service for children in grades 1 through 5, who are brought back in to participate with the congregation in Holy Communion. Our nursery is also available for infants and young children.
10:00 am Coffee Hour - Often known as the 8th Sacrament, Coffee Hour is that time when introductions are made, relationships are built, and community strengthened. Copious amounts of coffee, tea and good food are also consumed.
5:00 pm Healing Service with Holy Eucharist - A meditative service focused on physical and spiritual healing. Scriptures are presented in the ancient monastic style of lectio divina or “Divine Reading” interspersed with time for meditation to instrumental music in the style of Taizé. In lieu of a sermon or homily, an interactive congregational reflection on the Gospel lesson provides a practical application of the Scripture to our daily life. Holy Communion is offered. Please join us after the service in the Parish Hall for our weekly Red Door Supper - our free community meal offered to anyone who walks through our Red Doors.
