Weekly Sunday Services
8 a.m. – 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 a.m. – 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!
5 p.m. – Vespers Service of Light*
We invite you to attend our Celtic-inspired evening worship service held every Sunday except once a month when our service takes the form of Bach Vespers. It is a time of self-reflection — a space to sit with God and listen. There are candles lit for special concerns, extended meditation with silent prayer and chants, and instrumental music with the hauntingly beautiful melodies of ancient Celtic traditions.
*Communion is offered except on rare occasions.

5 p.m. – Bach Vespers
Join the Bach Ensemble of St. Thomas once a month (Fall through Spring) 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.
