Services are held at 10 am on Sunday, and on Wednesday evenings during Holy Week, Lent and Advent. Special services and time changes will be advertised on the home page.
Our services follow the Book of Alternative Services (the green book) with music from the Common Praise hymn book on most Sundays and from Mission Praise on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The 3rd Sunday services are our more contemporary service; the altar and choir are moved to join the congregation, and the 3rd Sunday Band leads the music for the service.
About once a month, St. George’s takes responsibility for leading worship at one of Pictou County’s homes for special care. These services are led by the rector or a lay person and supported by members of the congregation. These services begin at 2:30 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon and the dates for these services are announced in the weekly Sunday Bulletin.
In addition to the regular Sunday services, St. George's offers special request services.
The majority of our services incorporate a Eucharistic prayer and communion (bread and wine). We sing parts of the service, such as the psalm, the Gloria, Sanctus, Benedictus and Angus Dei, but not the responses, collects or prayers.
What does this mean for newcomers to the church? Have no fear. Our minister and lay readers announce where we are throughout the service, and fellow parishioners are more that willing to point out the book or page. If you don't know the music or don't feel comfortable singing along, don't worry, you don't have to sing. Just stand, sit or kneel and enjoy our company.
Come and see what we're all about. Join us on a Sunday morning.
