Sunday worship is the centre of our life as a church community. We gather together to pray, learn, sing, hear and reflect on God’s Word, and to share in fellowship with one another. Communion is at the center of our worship as we gather at the Lord’s Table to share in this holy and sacred meal that Christ has given to us.
All are welcome to attend our worship services. Please dress as you feel most comfortable, and let us know if you are visiting so that we can welcome you and assist you with anything you might need during the service.
Following the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service, St. George has a coffee hour popular with parishioners and newcomers alike, as it provides an opportunity for fellowship.
The worship space at St. George on Yonge is contemporary. There are chairs that we move into various configurations, depending on the liturgical season of our church year. This allows us to enjoy worship in a flexible design from the more traditional rows to in the round with the altar in the center.
8 a.m. Communion
Our early service on Sunday, held in our chapel, is a quiet worship service using traditional language from the Book of Alternative Services.
10:30 a.m. Communion with music and programs for children and youth
We come together to pray, to sing, to learn and to share in the sacrament of Communion. This service uses the more modern liturgies from the Book of Alternative Services. A full range of programs for children and youth is offered during this service.
On the first Sunday of the month, we offer a ministry of anointing with prayers for healing at both the 8 and 10:30 am services.
The 3rd Sunday of each month is our “Amazing, Awesome, Alternative Worship Experience” … AAAWE. It is “alternative” in some of the prayers we use and in the style of music we sing. As well, we use the piano and other instruments like percussion, guitar, saxophone and violin. If you are interested in being part of our AAAWE Musicians, please speak to our music director, Michael Leach.
Other Worship Services
The ministry team of St. George on Yonge provides worship services for residents at several seniors’ residences in the neighbourhood, including Delmanor and Lansing. For more information, please speak to a member of the ministry team.
During Advent and Lent (the times in our church year leading up to Christmas and Easter) we have weekday Candlelight Communion services in the chapel. They are quiet, meditative and include contemplative music with only candles for light.
Please contact us about baptisms, weddings or funerals. We are happy to journey with you through these important moments in your life.
