Community Mission

Monthly Healing Service

While we are supportive of our ecumenical nature, we have made strides to expand into dialogue beyond our Christian family. We welcome all to our Healing Service - Held the 2nd Sunday of the month at Noon. A Service of Healing will be held every 2nd Sunday at Noon. Please join us and invite your friends for this 45 minutes service.


Children's Liturgy

The first Sunday of each month is dedicated to our young people. The youth of the congregation do the Readings, and Prayers. They are invited up sit up front to share an interactive Homily especially presented for them although truth be told, the adults enjoy it as much as the children. The young people are invited to carry the Gifts to the Altar. It is this level of inclusion that makes church real to all ages.

Join us each January as we celebrate the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Last January included a Flavor of Ireland And Scotland Celtic Evensong and Concert. Holy Apostles hosted a very spiritually moving evening prayer service that was ecumenical in nature and captured the heart of Celtic spirituality the night of June 7th. After prayer, we were treated to the history, style, and music of the Celtic people by J. Gabriel Stone and David Gardner. Both men are exceptional musicians and true craftsman. The video above is just a taste of what we experienced. For more information on Mr. Stone's work you can click here.

Association of Interfaith Families

Daily Word: '... the call comes to work for unity, to replace the denominational structures which institutionalise division by structures which foster unity. The pain of interchurch families who have to pay the cost of eucharistic division simply highlights the wider christian predicament - the cost the church has to pay for divisions between denominations: its mission to the world cannot properly be carried out because its function as a sign of God's reconciling love is obscured. This is the basic question for the churches: the urgency' with which they pursue their reconciling mission in the world.' from "Eucharistic Division: The Cost in Human Terms" by Ruth Reardon.
