Sunday Services

IMG_1359Our worship services are held at 10:45 a.m. every Sunday. The word “worship” comes from Old English roots that mean “to shape worth.” Each week we explore those things that are worthwhile and meaningful in our lives, as well as acknowledging the challenges we encounter personally and in our world.

We honor and use as a guide a variety of philosophies and spiritual traditions, including Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Humanist, Pagan and other religious and non-religious worldviews. We draw on the wisdom of philosophers, poets, artists, and thinkers to enrich our lives and worship. Our services tend to follow a traditional format with readings from a variety of spiritual sources, singing, and a sermon based on a monthly theme or focus — although we do have services that are an exception to this, such as our annual music service.

Children sit with their parents, grandparents and/or guardians for the first part of the service, and after a story particularly chosen to be appropriate to our theme, are invited to attend Religious Education (R.E.) classes. Child care is provided in our nursery for younger children for the entire service. We also hold some services that are for all ages. On these mornings there are no R.E. classes, but child care is always offered for younger children.
