Worship is the heart of St. Brendan’s Anglican Church. Central Lutheran Church (a conservative member of the ELCA) shares their traditional nave and sanctuary with us. Please view our Visiting page for a list of service times.
Our 11 am Sunday Holy Eucharist is a contemporary language version of the 1662 BCP service with additions of extemporaneous Thanksgivings and prayers, and intercessory prayers from the 1979 BCP. We have an excellent organist who directs the choir to sing once a month and organizes some very talented vocalists and instrumentalists to perform many times during the year, so we feel truly blessed.
Our preaching is Gospel based and spiritually encourages us all week long. This Lent we held joint services with our Lutheran brothers and sisters in on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. We also held our first Easter Vigil service which was traditional and very beautiful. We hold alternating Morning Prayer and Holy Communion Services from the 1928 BCP on Wednesdays at 11 AM throughout the year.
They say the mark of a vital church is what you see happening just before and after the service on Sunday. At St. Brendan’s, you will see a lot of laughter and fellowship as people are glad to see each other as we prepare for worship and greatly value our fellowship with one another at coffee hour following the service. Many visitors have said they have received the warmest welcome of any church when they come to St. Brendan’s and we believe all this emanates from our life of worshiping God in Christ.
