Liturgy

Worship lies at the heart of the Christian life. It is in worship that we express our theology and define our identity. It is through encountering God within worship that we are formed (and transformed) as his people.

One of the glories of the Anglican Church is its liturgical worship.

Liturgy refers to the patterns, forms, words and actions through which public worship is conducted.

Worship in the Anglican Church is said to be liturgical, meaning that the congregation follows service forms and prays from texts that don't change greatly from week to week during a season of the year. This sameness gives worship a rhythm that is comforting and familiar to worshipers, especially for visitors who should find themselves in familiar territory.
