Worship

Our worship together shapes our beliefs and is the foundation of our common life as a church community. For us, faith is not primarily a list of things people have to believe; it is a way of life that is worked out through our relationships with God and with each other. That begins as we worship together—and continues as we work together in service to our brothers and sisters, and even as we gather simply to enjoy each others’ company.

The best way to begin to experience this is to worship with us. We welcome newcomers. We understand that Stepney Meeting House won’t be the right church for everyone, and we realize that some people will visit and decide to join, while others might eventually move on. We are a warm and open church and we welcome visitors for as long as they want to stay with us, whether that turns out to be a Sunday or a lifetime.

Our worship is drawn from the Reformed tradition and from our denominational and other service books, including the Book of Common Order of the Church of Scotland and the Book of Common Worship of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
