Regular Sunday Service Times

8 a.m. – Rite I Holy Eucharist

Eucharist is the Greek word for thanksgiving. At the Eucharist, we recall the story of salvation and then give thanks for Jesus’ gift of himself in the form of bread and wine as spiritual food for the baptized.

The 8:00 a.m. Eucharist is a traditional Rite I service that celebrates our English Roots. Rite I uses classic Elizabethan-era English with a sermon but no hymns. It captures the reflective and meditative feel of the early morning.

10:15 a.m. –  Rite II Holy Eucharist with Choral Music

The Eucharist is structured around the actions of taking, blessing, breaking, and sharing the gifts of bread and wine as the body and blood of Christ. The 10:15 a.m. Eucharist is a beautiful and classic service in modern English. This is our main service and families are encouraged to attend.  You can choose to have your children begin the service in Sunday School in Ascension Chapel, for a service is designed with kids in mind. Children join the rest of the parish for the celebration of the table at Holy Communion. Many portions of the service and hymns are sung, led by the parish choir. Anthems from the long choral tradition of Anglican Church music are often featured.

6:00 p.m. – Contemporary Rite II Service

The Eucharist is not just a reward for the pure and happy but is medicine for the hurting and broken. This service happens in our side chapel and is a quieter and more contemplative way to end your Sunday in communion with God and others. The service is unaccompanied by music and very simple. Anointing for healing is available if desired.


Monday Morning Prayer Service at 8:30 a.m.

The Morning Prayer service is held in the side chapel of the church at 8:30 a.m. on Mondays - a great beginning to every week!


Wednesday Healing Service at 10:00 a.m.

Wednesday's Eucharist service is held in the side chapel of the church at 10:00 a.m. This service features prayers for healing, the laying on of hands offered after Communion, and a sermon that is usually about the saint of the day.


Women's Bible Study at 10:00 a.m. on Thursdays

Join us in the Teen Center at 10:00 a.m. on Thursdays for prayerful discussion in preparation for this week's lessons.


What Are Services Like?

Each service varies in length from about 40 minutes to a little over an hour. While our church is fairly traditional, we are as diverse as you will find anywhere and everyone is welcome. We seek to know Christ together, so opinions and other considerations are less important than learning to know, love, and serve Christ.

There are often people in shorts, sandals, and suit coats at the same service because we come from all sorts of places physically, spiritually, financially, and politically. You are welcome from wherever you find yourself. We have a place for you at Christ Church of the Ascension.
