From September to the end of June, we celebrate every Sunday in 2 different worship styles:
8:30 a.m: a quiet spoken-word service of Holy Communion following the Book of Common Prayer.
10:30 a.m: a service of Holy Communion following the Book of Alterative Services (contemporary language), with music.
If you do not feel comfortable to return to church, you are invited to view and join in the recorded versions of the services on our YouTube Channel HERE.
Resources for online worship
If you have a prayer book at home, the service of Holy Communion is found in the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) beginning on page 67, and the service of Holy Eucharist is found in the Book of Alternative Services (BAS) beginning on page 185.
Digital copies (PDF files) of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) and of the Book of Alternative Services (BAS) can be downloaded for free on the Anglican Church of Canada’s website, HERE.
If you do not already have the reader for these files installed, it can be found at: get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/
Sunday readings are taken from the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). We are currently in Year A of the RCL cycle. Our weekly Keeping Connected newsletter includes the readings for the coming Sunday (see News and Events).
A table of Sunday readings for the entire three-year RCL cycle can be found on the Vanderbilt Divinity School Library’s website: lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu
At St Paul’s we use the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV-universal edition) translation the scriptures. If you do not have a copy at home, you can look up Bible passages on the Bible Gateway website: www.biblegateway.com.
