The 9:00 Worship Service at Port Wallis is about 35 minutes long and follows the format of Celtic Morning Prayer.
There is high congregational participation in this form of Worship at the 9:00 Sunday Service. The music is laity chosen and played and varies each Sunday according to the musician’s musical instrument, their choice of hymns, and their ability. The scripture lesson is one of the four lessons set out in the Ecumenical Lectionary and is usually the Gospel.
The “Teaching Time” is a time of explaining the Scripture and usually ends up with a question to go home and ponder. The Pastoral Prayer Format is call and response where the minister says a line and the congregation repeats. We end up by saying the Lord’s Prayer together. There are several set parts of the Liturgy that remain the same Sunday to Sunday.
Five times a year we have Communion ( First Sunday of Advent, Sunday before Lent, Easter, Pentecost, and World Wide Communion) and at these times, we have a communion Bulletin and Liturgy.
Drop in and join us.
