The Regular Services

Our principal service is the Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion, celebrated on Sunday mornings at 8:15 a.m. and at 10:30 a.m., or on other great Christian days such as Christmas Day and Easter Day. The 10:30 service includes wonderful choral music and a sermon. This service normally lasts until about 11:30 a.m. and there refreshments (coffee or tea and finger food) after the service in the Parish Hall. The  8:15 a.m. service is shorter and more meditative (no music).


You don't need to get dressed up. If you're not sure what to wear, dress as you would if you were going shopping. For the men, either a coat and tie or a shirt and slacks are fine. In the summertime, dress is more informal - even though the church is air-conditioned, we know it gets hot here in Richmond in the summertime.  What you wear isn't important. It's the fact you're here that matters!
