About Our Sunday Services

At St. Bride's, you can expect worship that is rooted in the Anglican tradition and enlivened by contemporary and relevant perspectives.  We hope you can join us in person for one of our two Sunday services. We live stream our 10am service, and keep an archive of service and sermon recordings on our website.

Our 8:30 a.m. service is a traditional, smaller, quieter service. This service includes the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), and a time for Holy Communion.

Our 10 a.m. service is a larger, more contemporary family service. We use the Book of Alternative Services (BAS), there is more music than the 8:30 a.m. service, and includes The Good News Club (Sunday school) for children.
Meeting new people at church can be hard. And as much as we want you to feel comfortable and welcome, we don’t always know if someone is here for the first time. Please let our greeters know if this is your first time as you enter, or if you’re looking to connect.

After the 10 a.m. service, we gather to catch up with each other over coffee in the Fellowship room at the back of the church. This is a great way to meet others. Please join us! We would love to see you and get to know you.

Sermon - May 21, 2023 10am (for the full service click here)

Rev. Jillian Ruch, Curate, St. Bride's

Rev. Jillian preached about the Ascension of Jesus.  The disciples were told to wait in the city by Jesus and Rev. Jillian examined how hard that must have been for the disciples.  We humans do not wait well!  However, when we put our faith into God for that period of time of waiting, giving that space to God could make the waiting a little less anxiety provoking.  

Although our waiting might not always feel as hard as waiting for the Holy Spirit that Jesus shared would becoming in a few days, waiting is difficult for us.  We prayed with the children that we find it easier when we talk through prayer to Jesus about how we are feeling during that time of waiting.
“Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.  For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
Acts 1:4

Sermon - Palm Sunday, April 2, 2023 10am (for the full service click here)

Rev. Jillian Ruch, Curate, Church of St. Bride

Rev. Jillian spoke to us about the Triumphant Entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. She shared with us about the amount of orchestration by Jesus to make everything happen just so, for Holy Week.

She shared with us as well a quote from Tim Keller: "Jesus was tremendously humble, but not at all modest." This is important for us to recognize the difference between the two as we enter this very emotional and drama filled Holy Week. The Holy city was in an uproar and asked us if we would know fully how to answer those asking "Who is this?" referring to Jesus.

The entire city of Jerusalem was in an uproar as he entered. “Who is this?” they asked. Matthew 21:10

Sermon - March 12, 2023 10am (for the full service click here)

Rev. Jillian Ruch, Curate, Church of St. Bride

Rev. Jillian challenged us to push our boundaries! Also to think of someone who is maybe on the fringe of our friendship group or someone that we know that could use a friend. Through the meeting of the Samaritan women, we were reminded who Jesus told us God loves - EVERYONE! Jesus was attempting to mend the boundaries between the Samaritans and Jewish people with this purposeful and intentional meeting at the well.

Bishop Jenny Andison

At Rev. Jillian Ruch's Ordination to the priesthood, Bishop Jenny shared about how we as Christians can act in subversive activity (counter cultural ways) in God's name.  This was based on the quote from C. S. Lewis that "Christianity is the story of how the Rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign of sabotage". 

Bishop Jenny shared that Jesus head a heart for the helpless and harassed.  He wants us to work into those spaces, in the language that can be heard in the cultural times and to work compassionately.  Definitely a mission that can be dangerous but in God's name.

Grace Terrett, Guest Speaker

Grace Terrett expanded our thinking on the "most famous bible quote" John 3:16.  Grace reminded us that it is with God's love that he sent His son to die for us.  That faith is relational and that we are in relationship with God through his acts and our faith.
