10:30 AM: Contemporary Service
Worship at St. Stephen’s is a rich mixture of the old and the new. We follow the two prayer books authorized for use in the Anglican Church of Canada—the Book of Common Prayer and the Book of Alternative Services—but we make changes to both so that they reflect modern sensibilities. Our prayers and readings use inclusive language wherever possible and our hymns are drawn from both traditional and contemporary sources. And while there is structure to our worship services, there is spontaneity as well, reflecting a dynamic congregation of diverse people coming together to greet the living God in one another.
