It brings us close to God and invites us to reflect on how to live as God’s people. Our Anglican liturgical tradition values art, music and words as expressions of and pointers to the presence and glory of God.
The word liturgy literally means “the people’s work.” It refers both to our worship as a congregation gathered and to our service to the world in the name of Christ.
Liturgy that graciously accepts, connects us with God and one another, addresses the realities of life today and welcomes all people into participation. Liturgy that spiritually feeds, opens us to the beauty and glory of God, shapes our understanding and love of God and comforts and challenges us. Liturgy that lovingly sends, empowers us to be active in the world as heralds of the gospel.
