Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Sunday Mornings and the Holy Eucharist

A message from Brian+ concerning worship on Sunday March 22nd

Posted by Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church on Friday, March 20, 2020
*Fr. Brian describes worship on Sunday March 22nd. All of the information still applies for March 29th with the exception of the communion station in VA Beach and the times. For March 29th, the second communion station will be in Chesapeake at the Branch’s house, please keep reading for more information.

As Anglicans, the reception of the sacrament is the apex of our worship and daily life. Quite literally, we need to receive the tangible grace of God to be nourished and sustained as gracious Sons and Daughters of God. Here is how we will receive the Sacrament on Sundays during this season.

We will have two ‘Stations’ for Communion, one in Norfolk (the parking lot of Knox), the other in Chesapeake (the home of Matt and Jill Branch – 808 High Point Ln, Chesapeake VA 23322).

One of the clergy and a lay assistant will be present at each location to pray with you and your family and to distribute the bread (our bishop has asked us not to communicate in both kinds during the duration of the pandemic). Simply stay in your car and we will come to you.

At the Norfolk Station, the clergy and assistant will be present from 11:30 am – 12:00pm.

As it will take some time to travel to Chesapeake, the Branch’s Station will be manned from 12:30 – 1:00pm.
