Small Groups
at St. Bart's

Joining small groups and affinity groups is a great way to make new friends in a large church like St. Bart's. These friendships become valued relationships with shared experiences connecting our lives in the transformative love of Jesus Christ.

 

There are offerings every day of the week such as book groups, men's and women's groups, prayer groups, fellowship groups and more.

Check out the list here to find small groups that are of interest and a match for you!

  • How many services are there?
    We offer weekend services in the Chapel on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday at 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. in the church Sanctuary. Children’s Chapel begins at the beginning of the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service, and the kids return at the time of the peace to receive Communion with their parents. Masks are optional for all attendees. Weekday services include Morning Prayer in the Chapel from Tuesday-Thursday at 8:40 a.m., and a Healing Service with Holy Communion in the Chapel on Thursday at 12:00 p.m. On the first and third Wednesday of the month in the Chapel at 6:00 p.m. is the ReGeneration, or "ReGen", Contemporary Service, which includes more contemporary music and format, and Holy Communion.
  • What are the services like?
    Weekend services all include Holy Communion; all are welcome to receive communion at St. Bart’s. The Saturday 5:00 p.m. service and Sunday 10:00 a.m. services include music and singing, while the 8:00 a.m. service on Sunday is prayerful and quiet with meditative music. Weekday services use the Book of Common Prayer and do not include music or singing. The Wednesday night ReGen services include more contemporary music and service format, with Holy Communion.
  • How can I follow along with the services?
    Bulletins are provided for the weekend services and online in the weekly eNews and on the website. The order of service is also projected during seasonal 10:00 a.m. Sunday services and Wednesday ReGen services.

    Children participate in Godly Play each Sunday from 9:00-9:45 a.m. in the Education Building while parents can grab a coffee and attend the Adult Forums. Youth Forum is also 9:00-9:45 a.m. in the Youth Room each Sunday. The children start with parents at the 10:00 a.m. service and leave to join Children’s Chapel shortly after the service begins. They return at the time of the peace and join parents for the remainder of the service with Holy Communion.
