Weekday Worship

Smiling Easter Friends

Morning Prayer is offered weekdays at 7:30 a.m. in the Mary Chapel.
This service includes readings from scripture, psalms, prayers and intercessions and are conducted in a quiet, contemplative way. Lasts 30 minutes.
Silent Morning Meditation follows Morning Prayer from 8:15 to 8:45 a.m. weekdays, also in the Mary Chapel.
At 8:15 a.m. a chime invites us into 20 minutes of silent meditation which ends with a second sounding of a temple bell. Next, the group recites the Lord’s Prayer and time is given for open intercessions. We end with a simple “Let us bless the Lord” and the response “Thanks be to God” and handshakes and greetings all around. Read More…
Mid-week Eucharist is offered at 12:15 p.m. Wednesdays, in the Mary Chapel.
Join us as we celebrate a spoken Holy Eucharist including noonday prayers and readings from scripture.
Choral Evensong with sermon is held at 5:00 p.m. on the first Sundays of the month from October to June in the Church. Childcare is available for this service.
The Anglican service of evensong dates from the 1549 Book of Common Prayer. The service is the result of the joining of two of the ancient Sarum services—Vespers and Compline—into one service by Thomas Cranmer, first Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury and author of the first Prayer Book. St. Martin’s sung Evensong services include sermons by guest preachers. Get information on music, guest preachers, and listen to recordings here.
Compline is held on 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the church following SUPPER at St. Martin’s.*
Compline, “A Nightcap for the Soul” is a beautiful sung, 20-minute service to close out the day.
*During Lent, Compline will be held WEEKLY on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., preceded by a either SUPPER or a simple soup dinner.

Second Annual Emancipation Day Celebration

Caribbean Emancipation Statue

Sunday, August 6, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.

The Rev. Leroy Lyons, preaching

Join us as we gather for our 2nd Annual Celebration of Emancipation Day! We’ll hold a joyous worship service at 5:00 p.m., followed by a reception featuring a steel drum band and Caribbean foods.

The Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 ended slavery in the British Empire on August 28, 1834. Emancipation Day is widely observed in the former Carribbean Colonies of Britain during the first week of August to remember and celebrate this historic moment of liberation from oppression and injustice. As the Anglican Church is large and popular in the Caribbean, Emancipation Day includes liturgical celebrations. All are welcome!

All are welcome to all services.
We would love to have you join us.
