Worship services are at the heart of what goes on at St. Barnabas. Each Sunday, we gather to pray, praise, learn, give thanks and celebrate the Holy Eucharist.
Our liturgy, the public expression of our active Christian faith, is based on the Book of Common Prayer. Throughout most of the year, we celebrate Rite I at 8:00 AM and Rite II at 10:00 AM (this may change during the summer months).
Our services are traditional and reverent, but we are not stuffy or exclusive. All are truly welcome to join us in worship, and you should feel comfortable to come as you are.
Rite I Holy Eucharist 8 AM
This service uses the Rite I liturgy (traditional, Elizabethan language). This is a quiet, spoken liturgy with no music and it lasts approximately 45 minutes. Coffee and fellowship follow in the Parish House, Barnabas Hall.
Rite II Holy Eucharist 10 AM
This is a spoken service and using the Rite II liturgy. Traditional hymns and our St. Barnabas Choir and Stone Church Pickers accompany the service which lasts about an hour.
