Evensong

Evensong is an ancient discipline of the Christian faith; a regular time of quiet, solitude, listening, prayer, and song that provides a reflective pause for realignment and re-engagement in our spiritual journey with Jesus.This is a short service of prayers, Scripture readings and music intended for personal reflection, in community.

Wednesdays @ 7:30pm

Why Evensong?

In our fast-paced lives, Evensong offers us the opportunity to slow down, to gather and take time, to listen to the concerns of God expressed in Scripture, to respond to God in prayer. All while listening to and participating in music that is especially selected to bring us into deeper understanding of the mysteries of our faith.

How long?

45 minutes

will there be a sermon/Homily?

No.

why the music?

"Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord..." (Ephesians 5:18-19).

 

Music speaks "on behalf of” the congregation. Musical settings of The Song of Mary (Magnificat) and Simeon’s Declaration (Nunc Dimittis) are always featured. Music allows the congregation time to meditate and enter into deeper prayer through words and melodies. Some musical components encourage the congregation to join in, others just to listen and reflect.
