How We Worship at St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church, Oklahoma City
St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church of Oklahoma City claims a unique heritage that stems from both Protestant and Catholic lineage, so our liturgical life reflects both ancient and reformed tendencies. In worship, we are united, acknowledging the holiness of God, to hear God’s Word, to offer prayer, and to celebrate God’s presence among us in the Sacraments. All are welcome to participate in our worship because it is in worship that we live out our life as a Christian family. The service is drawn from the Book of Common Prayer, two-thirds of which is scriptural. The Book of Common Prayer has a variety of formal rites, which include ancient and modern prayers for both corporate and individual use. It must be said that just as there are a variety of churches, so too will the method of conducting a service vary greatly, from the very plain to those with great ceremony. Each service concludes with a blessing and the mandate to depart to serve a world in need of God’s love.
We have three regular services each week:
Weekly Service Schedule
8:30am – Traditional Communion Service with Organ
10:45am — Celebration Communion Service with Traditional and Praise Music
Noon — Abbreviated Communion Service with no Music
