Worship

Each Sunday at 10.00 am we meet a the Lychway, 5 Roy Street, Palmerston North, with St David’s Congregation.

What might one expect as a guest in the worship.   First of all, a welcoming spirit. Though our worship is liturgical, we see worship of God as a celebration where joy and laughter is as appropriate as solemn confession. After all, “God has shown us how much we are loved—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

Most of us are older, but there are three infants with their young parents in the mix.  They give us happy sounds (usually) and make us glad that they are there.  We begin worship at 10.00 am each Sunday, at the Lychway.  

We know it’s unusual, but we are  unusually faithful to the Gospel in many ways seeking unity not in our spaces but in our  common faith as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Christ’s Table is set on each of the first two Sundays of the month. Presbyterians recognize that Christ’s church is bigger than our denomination, therefore any previous baptism is honored and all believers are called to gather at the Table.

Music is an important part of our worship and life.  We honor the arts and make them part of our celebration.  The building at St. Andrews, is closed to the public at present due the earthquake rating, has the twelve stations of Christ’s passion are depicted on the walls of the sanctuary for personal devotions.  Stations of the Cross

Emma Pratt, an artist who now lives in Spain,  created the paintings for her church family.  Her parents have also enhanced our worship space during Advent with a network of Angels who fly over the chancel.  Angels

If other places have not been kind to  you, share worship with us and let us show you the love Christ has for you.
