The liturgical ‘style’ of the parish can be quite varied. We follow the structure of various services found in ‘A Prayer Book for Australia.’ Within these structures we are creative in running our liturgy at the 10am Service, often using contemporary styles of music; data projection, as well as having traditional Sung Eucharist.
The 7.00am (Yarrawonga) and 8.30am (St. James) Services tend to be traditional, usually without music, however all forms of liturgy are practiced, with a family focused service and parish meal on Sunday evenings at 5pm bi-monthly.
We observe the major Festivals and Saints days of the church: especially the festivals of our four Patronal Saints – Cuthbert, Alban, Oswald and Thomas, (see Patronal Festivals in side listing).
Messy Church /All Age Worship Experience Services:
The AWE service is a recent addition to our liturgical style, conducted on the 4th Sunday of alternate months, the children are invited to participate in Craft and fun activities then into the church for a themed Service presented in various formats. The All Age Worship Experience is interactive and inclusive in different ways with a focus on the place of children of all ages in the service and invites people of all ages to help our young ones, Grow with God.
