We are a seaside fellowship of people from many different walks of life who are discovering life’s meaning through a transforming relationship with Jesus. As members of God’s family, we have become His disciples—learning to live like Jesus and receiving power from His Spirit—so we can joyfully love those around us and do our Father’s will on earth as it is in heaven. If you are looking for a warm and friendly church home, we invite you to:

Celtic Evensong – A Contemplative Christian Worship Experience
Our Celtic Evensong worship draws from the liturgical traditions of Iona and Northumbria. At the heart of this liturgy lies the rhythmic prayers of the Daily Office – prayers used communally and individually, each day. This is a great gift from the monastic traditions.
At Evensong we practice different forms of prayer, story-telling and Scripture meditation. There are times to be still, to be silent. At Evensong we can experience God through the serenity of the natural world around us. There are times to sing. The music at Celtic Evensong is contemplative, lively and haunting. And there are times to pray. The prayers are at once earthy, holy and inclusive, mostly drawn from The Psalms.
At Evensong, we draw from the examples of great Christian fathers and mothers of the faith from past centuries. We meditate on the truths found in the Bible, explore the historical expression of faith from Celtic times and the monastic tradition – then we allow God to show us how to apply those same Biblical truths in our time, in our culture and in our lives.
The Celtic Evensong is held once a month (Except Summer break), on 4th Sundays at 7:00 pm.
Sunday, September 24th – 7:00 pm
St. Germanus, Bishop of Auxerre
Focus: Prayer, Biblical Studies and The Apostles Creed
St. Germanus, Bishop of Auxerre. Born at Auxerre c. 380; died at Ravenna, 31 July, 448.
After his conversion experience Germain gave himself up to prayer, study, and works of charity. His splendid education now served him in good stead in the government of the diocese, which he administered with great sagacity.
He distributed his goods among the poor, and practiced great austerities. Germain established several schools for the training of the clergy.
