Welcome to St Martin’s Episcopal Church where the dignity and wisdom of the historic Christian Tradition in worship and prayer encounters the challenges and demands of everyday life in the 21st Century.
We look forward to welcoming many old friends and neighbors to our Christmas Services and a particular strength of the Episcopal Church is the dignity and beauty of our worship. At 4pm, on Christmas Eve we commence our celebration of Christmas with a Eucharist (service of Holy communion) at which our children will perform their annual Christmas Pagent. With three-decker camels, this is something to be seen to be believed. The style of this service appeals to both young and not so young, alike, and nothing quite beats the experience when in many instances three generations of family members worship together. At 10pm, the celebration of the Eucharist with full choir and blessing of the crib welcomes the arrival of the Christ Child with special solemnity. The lateness of the hour, together with the church decorated in colors of white, gold, and red lends a special quality to this experience of worship at which the preacher will be the Rector, the Revd Mark Sutherland. A quieter and simpler note is struck at the 10am Eucharist with carols on Christmas Day. Normal Sunday services at 8am and 10am will resume on Sunday 28th December.
From all at St Martin’s we extend Christmas greetings to all our friends and neighbors.
