Worship lies at the heart of Christian life. It is in worship that we express our faith in story, song, and sacrament. It is through encountering God within worship that we are formed, and transformed, as God’s people. Whether you're seeking to deepen your faith or are just curious about Christianity, you're invited to join us as we pray.
