We offer 3 services at 9 and 11 am and 5 pm. Two things are consistent at all three services: Our Senior Pastor, Dr. Barry McCarty, brings us the sermon at all three services, and Holy Communion is offered at each service. Every week we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus by recreating the meal that he shared with his disciples before his crucifixion. The bread and juice, representing his body and blood, are offered to all believers regardless of their background or church membership.
We value worship because the chief end of man
is to love God and enjoy Him forever.
At 9, we sing the same hymns and follow the same format as the bigger, more formal Sanctuary service, but it is a little more intimate. This service also includes a prayer time where congregants are encouraged to share prayer requests. If you are accustomed to worshiping in a small church, this service is for you.
Our 11 am service is like nothing else in Atlanta. In Peachtree’s Gothic Revival-style sanctuary, worshippers are surrounded by stunning stained glass windows that tell the story of Christ from His birth through His death and glorious resurrection. Our one-of-a-kind organ and magnificent choir combine with the beautiful acoustics of our Sanctuary to provide powerful worship through music. Despite the more formal feel of the service, one of the things we hear most often from visitors is how welcoming our congregation is.
Evensong, a Sunday evening worship opportunity of prayer, praise, and inspiration, takes place in the beautiful afternoon light of our cathedral. The music for Evensong is contemporary, yet blended, to complement the worship space and the acoustics of the sanctuary. There is a praise band and instruments will include piano, violin, electric and bass guitars, and drums.
