Worship

Overview

Worship at St. Hilda’s is diverse, inclusive, and innovative.  We have developed services which we are confident will appeal equally to visitors, newcomers, seekers, and long-term members. 

We have two Sunday morning services.  Our 8:30 service of Holy Communion is traditional, drawing from the time-honoured cadences of the Book of Common Prayer, and supplemented by hymns and musical settings familiar to generations of Anglicans.  On the fourth Sunday of the month, we may celebrate Matins (Morning Prayer), a mostly sung service of prayers, psalms, and canticles.  The character of our early service is quiet and meditative.

Our 10:00 service is a more 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. With the exception of the summer months the music is led by St. Hilda's Choir directed by Katherine Hume.

The character of this service is celebratory and joyful.  With the exception of the summer months, we have an active and vibrant Sunday School program which runs in conjunction with the service.
