Worship

Our services of worship are traditional and reverent, and all are welcome to worship with us regardless of age or background.

What to expect at our services.

Our services of worship follow a traditional form of Anglican Liturgy based on ‘A Prayer Book for Australia’. Services of worship include a time of focus on scripture and sharing in the sacrament of the Eucharist (Holy Communion).

The readings for the day follow the Australian lectionary and we hear from the Old Testament, The Psalms and The Gospels at each service. The sermon is usually based on one of the readings, at the discretion of the preacher. After the sermon, there is a time of reflective silence during which you may pray in response to the sharing of God’s word.

The Eucharist (Holy Communion) is a time of thanksgiving and remembrance as well as a sharing in a sacrament of God’s grace. All baptized believers in Christ (Anglican or otherwise) are welcome to share in the Eucharist. At St. Cuthbert’s we go forward and kneel or stand at the altar rail to receive the bread and wine. If you do not wish to receive the bread and wine but would like to receive a blessing simply cross your arms in front of you when you come forward to the altar rail.

Families are always welcome to share in worship at St Cuthbert’s. Children may worship with their parents or choose to join in the activities for children offered during the service.

Following our services we gather in the church hall for morning tea.  We would love for you to join us as we continue to share God’s love in community.
