Weekly Sunday Services
8 am – Sung Eucharist, Rite I
Our first service of the day draws on some of our most cherished texts, with beautiful language hearkening back to the one of the earliest versions of the Book of Common Prayer in 1662. This service includes hymns, prayers and sharing of communion.
10:15 am – Choral Eucharist, Rite II
This principal service of The Episcopal Church also draws on this historic tradition, though in Rite II the language is modernized. Our 10:15 service also features hymns, prayer and communion, but we also sing the portions of the musical mass setting (Gloria, Sanctus & Fraction). On top of this our choir offer one or two sung anthems a week – click here to hear what our music is like!
7 pm – ‘Come as you are’ Evening Eucharist
Our third service of the day draws on the same Episcopal traditions as our morning services. However, for this service we are joined by an acoustic trio of musicians who lead hymns and songs drawn from the rich variety musical traditions of North America. Sometimes quiet and contemplative, sometimes energetic, this candlelit service is an ideal way to close (or begin!) your week.

Taizé Prayer: Sundays at 6pm
Prayerfully unwind after a busy week. Reflective readings and prayers invite moments of meditation as the beautiful songs that make Taizé so unique envelope you. As participatory as you would like, Taizé offers a quiet, peaceful atmosphere of worship quite unlike anything else. Click here for the next service.
Bach Vespers: Sundays at 5pm
Join the Bach Ensemble of St. Thomas for a reflective evening of worship, focused through the lens of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Beyond aesthetic beauty, the music of Bach draws on a knowledge of scripture rivaled by just a handful of composers. Bach’s music is so infused with religious fervor that it is almost impossible to separate Bach the Christian from Bach the composer.

Evening Prayer with Holy Communion
Tuesdays at 6:30pm
Another service with ancient roots, this service of readings and prayers precedes our evening activities and meetings that begin at 7pm.
