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 Messy Church, held the 3rd Sunday at 5pm of even months is a recent addition to our liturgical style, people are invited to participate in Craft and fun activities then into the church for a themed Service presented in various formats, followed by a shared meal. The Messy Church is interactive and inclusive with a focus on people of all ages young and old to make friendships, interact, eat and Grow with God.
