Worship

 WORSHIP

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength..." Mark 12:30 When we hear the word "worship" many of us think of what happens in church on Sunday morning.  While this is indeed worship, at St. Philip we believe worship encompasses all of life - giving back to God all of who we are.  Listed here are the Sunday morning events; there are many other opportunities for worship found on the other pages of this site.   The 10:00 a.m. Worship service and Eucharist draws from traditional Anglican liturgy, as well as the Island Liturgy assigned for Vancouver Island.   The hymns are taken primarily from the Common Praise hymnal, and sometimes from our own compilation of familiar favorites.  We begin by setting our hearts on gathering before God.  Then follows the reading of the Word, a short Sermon and Prayers, and finally the Celebration of the Eucharist.  We go out into the world with God's Blessing.  (Refreshments follow in the church hall.)
