Worship is the focal point of Christian life in community. It is the starting point for education, fellowship, and service for people of all ages. Worship is the centerpiece of our corporate experience in faith. It is where we learn and proclaim our faith, where we sing, pray, and share our gifts from God with others. It is both the construction site and the launching area of our individual and corporate ships of faith. As we gather to praise God we are strengthened in our lives together and nurtured in our love for God and service to one another in Christ.
Currently we offer two similar yet distinct Services of Worship on Sunday mornings.
The first service happens in the Chapel. There is a children’s play area in the space and that service includes a special time with the children. The primary instrument used in that service is a piano, with other instruments augmenting the service from time-to-time.
The second service happens in the Sanctuary. This service is a little more formal than the first service. The primary instrument used is our organ, and there is a full choir to enhance the congregational singing and to provide special choral music.
From September-May, services are held at the following times:
- 8:30 AM in the Chapel and livestreamed on Second’s YouTube channel
- 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary and livestreamed on Second’s YouTube channel
Worship service schedule subject to change for special occasions. Please check the website homepage for up-to-date information.
Communion is offered on the first Sunday of each month at both services. All are welcome to partake in communion. You do not need to be Presbyterian or a member of this church.
Second Presbyterian Church is wheelchair accessible. A ramp is located on Charlcote Road (Charles Street) leading to the Westcott entrance (look for the white-columned colonnade). The elevator to the Sanctuary and Smith Hall, our fellowship hall, is located down the hall on the left. The glass door entrance on Stratford Road, nearest the Chapel where the 8:30 AM service is held, is also accessible. For more information, please view plan your visit.
