8 AM Service:

If attending the 8 AM service please make the Ushers aware of your visit and they will assist you in anyway possible – if unfamiliar with our Liturgical form of worship, please advise and they will assist.  They will not impose themselves upon you, but will help when asked.

The 8 AM service is a “said” service, which means that there is no music and it lasts around 45 to 50 minutes; following, there is a coffee and snack time in the parish hall. During this time we gather together in Christian Fellowship as we grow as a church family.  Following some fellowship time.

Sunday School

Adult and Children Sunday school classes begins at 9:15am (for the children & around 9:30 for adults) – the children meet for a devotional service and adults meet in Parish Hall.  Sunday School ends around 10am.

If attending the 10:30 service, you will find a “Greeter” out front of the parish hall (if inclement weather, they will be located inside the church door – the Narthex.) If you have children five and under, the Greeter will escort you to the nursery and introduce you to the nursery attendants  (members of our church) and answer any questions you may have.

The 10:30 is a sung service with a choir leading the music. This service usually last a little over a hour, and is followed by a lunch over in the parish hall as this time of fellowship allows us to grow together in our Love of Christ and strengthen us as a church family.

Useful aids available:

You should receive, if you do not ask for a copy, a “Visitors Bulletin” which has information on the Eucharist (Mass) and will help you follow the service and it briefly explains what we are doing and why. This aid is available to all visitors. As well you will receive the bulletin for the Sunday you are attending which has listed notes and information on what is going on at St. Michael’s.

As well, our website is updated almost daily and is an excellent source of information.  As well, in the church (and our library) we are an excellent source for information on Anglicanism and offer classes as well.  This information is for the “inquiring mind” and will require more time to read, thus much of it can be taken home for study.

Our desire
for your
visit:

We pray that your visit brings you peace and joy.  If you are new visitor, do not worry – you do not have to follow every step of the service; therefore, on your first visit you might just simply observe the beauty and reverence of our worship service.  We gather to “give ourselves unto God” and the focus of our service is to participate in the receiving of Jesus “His Body and Blood” in order that we may be strengthened to live a more “godly and righteous” life while day by day we grow nearer to Him.

Enjoy the diverse congregation of St. Michael’s as we have many nationalities coming together to praise and give thanks to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Please take the time to enjoy the fullness of our small family church.

We look forward to meeting you soon. God Bless!
