Scripture, Tradition, Reason
We recognize the importance of tradition and reason in seeking to understand what it is that Scripture is saying.
We do not put reason or tradition over Scripture since it is the ultimate authority.
Classic Traditional Anglican services: following liturgies from the Book of Common Prayer and the Book of Alternative Services
5th Sun. in Lent
Celebration of the
at 8:30 am & 10:30 am
at 10 am
At our services, you will hear words from the Bible, organ hymns (music) of worship, an engaging teaching (homily) from one of our priests and “liturgy” (a traditional form of Anglican worship).
Please do not be anxious about doing the "right thing" during the liturgy, but simply allow yourself to experience the service, and join in the worship according to your comfort level. You may follow along with the liturgy if you like but you do not have to participate in it if you don’t wish to. You may, without pressure or worry, just sit and observe how our worship service operates.

The liturgy from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer (Traditional, 19) is used the first and last Sunday of each month at the 10:30 am service. It is also used at each 8:30 am Sunday and 10:00 am Wednesday services.
The liturgy from the Anglican Book of Alternative Services (Contemporary, 1985) is used at the second and third Sunday of each month at the 10:30 am Choral Eucharist.

Windsor/Essex has a large homeless population and we are looking to help with the coming cold season by asking for any camping gear, tents, sleeping bags, warm coats and boots that people would be willing to donate. Please bring these items to the church and we will make sure they get distributed to folks who are in need.
We are once again looking for volunteers for the following:
Greeters to welcome parishioners
Readers for the scriptures during service
Hosts for coffee hour
If interested please contact the office and let us know how you would like to get involved.
