Worship

In worship, we entrust ourselves to God. We gather in fellowship, hear the scriptures proclaimed, offer our concerns and thanks to God, and share in the bread and wine of the eucharist. Strengthened by gathering, we return to the world around us to live with courage, act with justice, and choose with love as we proclaim the hope we have from God.

When we worship, we respond to God’s love shared with us in Jesus. Each Sunday is a mini-version of Easter, when we celebrate the great good news of Jesus’ resurrection and our new life in him. In response, we gather to celebrate the Eucharist: the bread and wine that become the body and blood of Jesus. Baptism also happens during these services.

If you’re interested in being married at the Church of the Nativity, there’s specific information here.

We are honoured to help when a loved one has died with a funeral celebration and associated details.

If you’re interested in more information about the other sacraments of the Church that are rooted in the life of the parish, such as reconciliation and confirmation, please do write or call the rector. In emergency need for prayers as someone is dying, please call the church office immediately at 905.549.4335.

 

Sundays at 8:30 a.m.
Quiet and contemplative, our 8:30 celebration of the Eucharist has a homily but no music.

Sundays at 10:00 a.m.
This Choral Eucharist is the main celebration of Sunday, including hymns and other singing. From September to June, the choir helps lead the singing, and a children’s program and supervised nursery are available. The 10am service is followed by coffee and conversation in Bartonville Hall.

Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. (September through June)
Our mid-week celebration of the Eucharist is held in the chapel, immediately inside the front doors on King Street. From time to time, it includes special prayers for healing.  Following the service, tea and cookies lead into a time for those who wish to spend time together in study to support our faith journeys.
