Worship

Melrose Worship Services

Melrose worship services blend contemporary and traditional elements, with a focus on thoughtful sermons and appealing music. Our Youth Chorus warms us up and our Senior Choir provides wonderful punctuation to the liturgy and scripture readings.

Services are held in the magnificent sanctuary, surrounded by a colourful array of stained glass windows. (For more about our windows, you can download a booklet or take a tour through our photo galleries.)

There are plenty of friendly faces to welcome you, so please join us and stay for refreshments and even a chat afterward.

Melrose This Week

This week in our worship and a reception time following, we will honour the retirements of two of our long-serving and beloved staff persons: Pam Kovacek and Lee Stallard. We will also celebrate a third Sunday in our Season of Creation with attention to the story of divine creativity that appears "in the beginning" -- the first chapter of the book of Genesis. During the sermon, the biblical creation story will be read in parallel with a scientific version written by a professor of astronomy well-known to many in the Melrose community: Dr. Gretchen Harris.

Rev. Dr. Philip Gardner
