Sundays at 4:30pm
Our worship on Sunday evenings serves as the center of our life as a community. We gather together in the sanctuary at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, the red brick church directly off the Square, and celebrate the Holy Eucharist. After the Lord’s Supper, members of St. Peter’s congregation provide the gathered community with a home cooked meal! Our first service of the 2015-2016 year will be August 23rd.
Thursdays at 6:00pm
Each Thursday evenings we gather together at the Chaplain’s House (124 Price St.) for a rotation of different programs. In the fall of 2015 we will feature a Bible Study on the Gospel of Mark two weeks a month intermixed with Cookout and Compline (dinner and worship) and Prayer and Play (evening devotional with a different fellowship activity each time).
Baptism & Confirmation
For any interested in joining the Christian faith, or the Episcopal church as a particular expression of that faith, Canterbury teams with St. Peter’s to offer Confirmation classes. Confirmation is a sacrament of commitment to the Episcopal church but the classes are fitting for those interested in Baptism, or any who have already been baptized or confirmed in the Episcopal Church and are simply interested in learning more. If you are interested contact the Chaplain, Chris Robinson (contact link).
Canterbury has a long history of service in and around the Oxford community, sometimes through programs offered at St. Peter’s. MANNA, a feeding ministry started more than 10 years ago by Ole Miss students, remains a huge part of Canterbury’s outreach efforts into the community. Students also engage in work with Leapfrog, an after-school program hosted in various churches around town, and EKC, the Wednesday night children’s program at St. Peter’s.
