Our worship services in common prayer is an important part of how we come together. The Anglican church follows a traditional of set prayers from two books:

  • Book of Common Prayer (BCP) based on 16th century rites

The Eucharist (also known as Communion) is offered during our Sunday service, all that are baptised as welcome to partake, or come forward for a blessing.

What to Expect

"Anglican services follow a pattern that begins with the gathering of the community, then listening to and reflecting on the Scriptures. The community then brings the needs of the world and the community to God in prayer, and the group partakes in the holy meal of bread and wine [the Eucharist], before being sent forth into the mission of daily life." -Anglican Church of Canada

Liturgical Cycle

Throughout the year, Trinity follows the Six Seasons of the Church - Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost - with a set list of Bible readings for the year. The liturgical cycle divides the year into a series of seasons, each with their own mood and theological emphases that are reflected in our chosen readings.
