Worship  Schedule
Sundays 10:00 am Holy Eucharist
Wednesdays 5:45 pm Holy Eucharist

In worship, we use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer


 

Reading the Scriptures, praying together, and sharing a common meal are the ways that Christians from earliest times have enjoyed fellowship with one another and with the risen Lord, and so we continue.

Grounded in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, our worship service is liturgical and based upon the ancient traditions of the Christian faith, and it is also Biblical, rooted in the Word of God.

We welcome visitors by showing forth God's gracious invitation to taste and see that the Lord is good.

St. John's is a community of believers with varying backgrounds, interests and experiences; but in Jesus Christ we are made one body.

Please feel free to contact our parish office or one of our clergy should you desire more information.  


 

What is Anglican Worship

If you are new to an Anglican worship service, then (depending on your experience in other church settings) it may strike you as a little strange.  In contrast to many of the worship services you might attend today, Anglican worship is formal—that is, it follows a set pattern.  The “blueprint” for Anglican worship is the Book of Common Prayer.   Read More

UPDATE FOR RED WAGON:
St. Paul's Catholic Church is again accepting donations for their food pantry.  In addition to food items, they welcome personal care items. This past week, our generous donations were shared between the church and the Arc. We will continue to offer our assistance to both of these areas for community outreach.
Thanks so very much for bringing the items to fill our Red Wagon!
 

From Fr. Mark...

As we begin to try and re-gather as a parish I want to share a few items with you.  The first is that it is heartening to be able to be together again, even in small steps.  Viewing our worship by way of YouTube or Facebook is good, but there is no substitute for being together.  Easter Sunday and the fellowship time that followed was a good indication of how important this is and how much we have missed one another.  It is very easy to get out of the good habit of being present and I invite you to perhaps select a Sunday each month as a beginning entry back to church.  Nichole and others will be providing a fellowship hour on the first Sunday of each month, often held outside with weather permitting.  We ask that you continue to use masks and appropriate distancing.
 
I do realize that safety is paramount for all of us.  At the moment NC has fully vaccinated 35.8% of the adult population and 47.1% have received at least one vaccination.  Over the past month the number of cases overall has dropped considerably since January as have hospitalizations, although there has been a slight increase over the past week.  As of April 20, 53% of the new cases are occurring in persons between the ages of 18-48.  All of this is to say we need to be vigilant and continue to select best practices as we gather.  Please consider the following:
 
Seating:  The pews are marked with black tape to designate which pew to sit in (every other row) and the spacing in that pew to allow some distance between individuals or groups of two or more.  Please ask for assistance from the usher if all areas seem to be full.
 
Prayer Books & Hymnals: These are not widely distributed in the pew racks.  If they are used. an effort is made to clean them after the service.  The preference is for folks to bring their own prayer book and the hymns are printed on the back of the bulletin.
 
Taking Communion:  Each individual person or couples/family units go to the altar at a time and stand for receiving the host so that there is no contact on the rail.  Only the wafer is given and no wine in a common cup in consideration for COVD prevention.
 
Greetings:  Please refrain from shaking hands or hugging as the CDC continues to recommend social distancing.  Masks are expected to be used for all adults throughout the service as well as before and after while on the premises.
 
Faithfully,
Fr. Mark
