Our Services

What are services like?
Anglican Worship is known as Liturgucal Worship which is communal and is observed through the use of the Book of Common Prayer,. This enables the congregation to share fully in every service. You may wonder when to stand or kneel. The general rule is to stand to sing---hymns (found in the Hymnal in the pews) and other songs (many of them from the Holy Bible) called canticles or chants and printed as part of the service. We stand, too, to say our affirmation of faith, the Creed; and for the reading of the Gospel in the Holy Eucharist. Psalms are sung or said sitting or standing. We sit during readings from the Old Testament or New Testament Letters, the sermon, and the choir anthems. We stand or kneel for prayer to show our gratefulness to God for accepting us as children or as an act of humility before God. The principal liturgy at Resurrection is the Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion). On Sundays, the first service is celebrated quite simply, without music, early on Sunday morning. The Second Mass on Sundays and all great Christian holidays such as Christmas, sung Mass music and a sermon are customary.

What is the community like?
Resurrection is a diverse parish which draws members from through the Tampa Bay Area with members coming from Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Polk and Sarasota Counties. It has ministries for bible study, women's ministry, refugees, global mission, young adult and education or all ages.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome all those who seek to find answers to life's question honestly and in a way that is open to how God might move.
