During the current coronavirus crisis as everyone is being encouraged to stay home and we have cancelled in-person services at the church, we are experimenting with worship being livestreamed (via Facebook) and worshipping via conference call.
For Sunday, March 29, we are planning to offer worship via conference call at 9 a.m. All church members will be contacted with a phone number to call in to so that they can participate in our worship service together over the telephone. If you would like to join us for our conference call worship, please contact Fr. Brian Turner via email.
You can find the Book of Common Prayer online here or download a free PDF copy of it here. We will be using Morning Prayer Rite One.
You are also invited to visit Church of the Blessed Redeemer's Facebook page for more videos, posts, and updates during this time.

Typically, we worship together on Sunday mornings starting at 9:00 a.m. We use the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) in our worship, and sing traditional and gospel hymns. Our weekly service follows the BCP Rite II Holy Eucharist, which uses contemporary language and includes Bible readings, a sermon, prayers, hymns, and the sharing of holy communion. We also have a special time for prayers at the altar with the priest in the middle of the service, including the laying on of hands and anointing for healing. Please note that our worship service often lasts between 90 and 105 minutes. Following our Sunday service there is also a "coffee hour" time to enjoy refreshments and fellowship with one another.
