Our 10:00 service is a contemporary one. We use the Book of Alternative Services as the foundation of our celebration of the Eucharist, but frequently add to or adapt it, drawing from other sources, both Anglican and non-Anglican. On the fourth Sunday of the month, we may celebrate Morning Prayer, frequently focusing our worship that day on a specific theme (such as peace, the environment, Sunday School, etc.). The character of our contemporary service is celebratory and joyful. With the exception of the summer months, we have an active and vibrant Sunday Schoolwhich runs in conjunction with the service.
St. Hilda's follows a cycle of readings in the Liturgy called the Revised Common Lectionary. Every Sunday we read from the Hebrew Scriptures, the Christian Testament and the Holy Gospel. The lectionary is a cycle or calendar of readings that goes through much of the Bible in a three year period. For 2016 we will be in the lectionary cycle for Year C http://lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu/
At various times, readings from Good As New: A Radical Retelling of the Scriptures or from the Message are also used. Stories and poems from more contemporary voices may also be incorporated into the "Lessons".
