What is it like to worship at St. Alban's?
Come as you are. This is a “house of prayer for all people”.
St. Alban’s particularly seeks to reach younger people and we welcome their
participation in the life of the church. We are blessed with some exceptional
young people in our parish family and many, many who are students at the St.
Alban’s Day School. Regardless of age, though, whatever situation you find
yourself in, whatever your past, your present, and your hopes and fears for
the future – St. Alban’s is a spiritual oasis. You will find our people to be
warm, welcoming, accepting, and genuinely interested in the kind of Christian
hospitality that helps newcomers feel at “home”.
Our worship is a joyful celebration of God’s gift of forgiveness and love
through the Person of Jesus Christ. We gather in His Name to offer prayers,
to hear and share Holy Scripture, to extend the Peace of God to our
neighbors, to “lift up our hearts” in thanksgiving for communion with Christ
in the Eucharist, and to receive the power of the Holy Spirit to love and
serve the Lord as we leave the church gathering. The services follow the
liturgies of the Book of Common Prayer. Anglicans from other provinces also
find a comfortable spiritual home here. Many of our congregants are from The
Anglican Church of Canada. These, and other northern friends, add welcome
dimensions to the life and worship at St. Alban’s.
Wednesday Mornings @
A service of Holy Eucharist with Healing Prayers is a mainstay of the week
for many at St. Alban’s. Here, we gather to pray in earnest for ourselves and
others – to be intercessors who connect God’s healing power with those in
need. Fr. Stuart leads a Bible study format for the “sermon” of the morning.
All present are engaged in the conversation and application of the readings.
In this weekly discipline we find that “healing” has many forms and
surprises. We try not to constrict the will of God in given situations, but
to seek understanding even as we pray sometimes in ignorance and desperation.
“Prayer changes things”, but prayer also changes us! Wednesday mornings are a
dedicated time to encounter the living God in whose Presence we cannot remain
The most beautiful and moving services of the year occur during the week from
Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday. Please check the website for details as
Lent and Easter Seasons approach.
