Mid-week eucharist

Mid-week eucharist is back on, Wednesdays at 12:30 pm. 

Wondering what you can do to help? 

Sanctuary set up and counters
We are looking for ongoing help with two important roles. You don’t need prior knowledge or experience–we’ll get you all trained up.

One is to help set up the sanctuary for worship. If you like the idea of transforming a bare room into a beautiful worship space, this is the job for you. It involves moving some furniture (not too heavy) and setting out candles, etc.  This job needs to be done in advance of the service, either on Saturday or earlier on Sunday. It takes 20 to 30 minutes. 

The other role is counting the offering after worship. This needs two people every week. In addition to counting, this job includes filling in a tally sheet and the deposit book. Ideally we will have several people who can do this job so that it’s not every Sunday.

If St. Mary Magdalene’s feels like your church, then these jobs might be a good way to deepen your connection with the community.

Holy Communion

Sundays from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Come for song and silence, story and prayer, and sacred meal.

Taking a break over the summer, but come September will be Tuesdays from 11:00 am to noon. We take a look at one of the readings for next Sunday. What do we like? What troubles us?
