Wednesday Morning Holy Communion
For those who prefer traditional worship with hymnody we offer a Book of Common Prayer (BCP) Eucharist at 11:00 am each Wednesday Morning. These quiet communion services of about 30 minutes in length and take place in the chapel area of the Church.
At Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church we believe in accepting and celerbrating worship as the Church has handed it down to us; utilizing the traditional forms which have served the Church for centuries. The foundation of our worship is the Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion, or The Lord's Supper. It was instituted by Jesus himself, and has been the principal expression of Christian worship since the Apostles first met after Jesus' Ascension. In the Eucharist, we gather to hear readings from the Scriptures, offer our prayers to God, and receive His grace in the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We practice "Open Communion" in the Anglican Church. If you are a baptized Christian, you are welcome to receive the Blessed Sacrament with us.
BCP (Book of Common Prayer)
The "BCP" has been the worship book of the Anglican Church since its inception in 1549. Commonly called the "prayer book" and often abbreviated as the BCP, the Book of Common Prayer is a collection of classic prayers, devotions, services and psalms that developed from the rites of the 16th Century and uses that century's language of that century. Many people continue to find its measured cadences attractive, and it remains the church's official prayer book.
