There are many opportunities for worship at St. Paul's during the summer, including Sunday worship at 8:00 am and 10:00, and Wednesday service at 9:45 am. There is active lay participation in worship: parishioners participate as communion administrators, leaders for prayers of the people, greeters and readers. An integral part of our worship is music, which includes new music and original compositions, and is supported by choir and praise music.
8:00 AM Sunday Morning – Holy Communion Said service using the Book of Alternative Services.
10:00 AM Sunday Morning - During the summer the 9:15 and 11:00 services combine for a 10:00 sung liturgy. The music changes between a traditional choral and praise band. This sung service is one of Holy Communion. It is informal, relaxed and very friendly. Sunday school (God Squad) classes take place at the same time as this service; the Book of Alternative Services is used.
9:45 AM Wednesday Morning Eucharist and Bible Study – Holy Communion how fortunate we are to have a Wednesday morning Eucharist and bible study. When Fr. John asked what the Wednesday morning Eucharist means to us, one comment was that it provides the spiritual boost we need to get through the rest of the week, that it reaffirms the Sunday experience.
Our policy with regard to access to the Lord's Table during the Eucharist is: This is the Lord's Table and all the Lord's people are welcome. In terms of visitors, they are invited to share in the bread and wine if they have been baptised, if they have accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour and if they are accustomed to receiving the elements of the Eucharist in their own church. We use bread and wine with a common cup. Communicants are welcome to receive the bread and drink from the cup or just receive the bread. Non-communicants may also come forward at the time of Communion and receive a blessing in the form of a short prayer.
Amongst the members of our parish, the norm is that children be baptised before receiving Communion (this is totally at the discretion of the parents).
We occupy a building with features to assist our visitors with mobility or hearing impairment. All of the areas of the church building are wheelchair accessible. We, also, offer a hearing loop system at 10:00 am service.
