We normally offer three different Sunday Morning Services every week: 8 am, 9:15 am and 10:30 am, each with a distinct style, but with the same theme.
– a quiet and contemplative Communion service, with Bible readings and prayers from the traditional Book of Common Prayer and a brief sermon.
This service runs about 40 minutes.
– a relaxed and informal seeker-oriented service with contemporary songs and favourite hymns, communion, and a sermon that connects to your lived experience.
This service lasts 45-50 minutes, with Children’s Ministry (ages 10-16) and Nursery care offered.
– a classic Anglican service of worship, with relevant biblical preaching, organ music, sung prayers, and choir music.
This service runs just over an hour, includes Holy Communion, and follows the liturgy found in our Book of Alternative Services.
Here are some of our other popular services:
Jazz Vespers at Christ Church is a popular, informal service held once a month on a Sunday afternoon from September to June, and featuring some of the city’s finest jazz musicians. This service has been included in the Toronto Jazz Festival line-up.
Our Jazz Vespers include a reflective reading and prayers for the needs of the world.
A voluntary collection is taken.
On Wednesday mornings we offer a half-hour service of Holy Communion in the chapel, with a short reflection or homily. Please note our first service in 2023 will be on January 11.
The fourth Friday of every month we open up Church on Tap here at Christ Church Deer Park. We’re serving up a light, smooth, and informal service of Holy Eucharistic in our worship space, followed by ice-cold beer in the hall.
Using only the finest liturgy, coupled with a pint of locally brewed beer, we have unlocked the perfect combination for a great start to your Friday night in the city.
(Non-Alcoholic beverages & snacks will also be served)
Good Liturgy. Good Beer. Amen.
Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.
The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.
Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
