Worship at Cpc

We gather on Sundays from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. for our worship services. We enjoy many of the familiar Protestant hymns and blend in new ones. Our choir will sing. We usually have a short children’s lesson, after which, most of the children attend our Sunday school program. We then hear the weekly sermon.

We differ from many other churches in that, after the sermon, the congregation often discusses the message and we talk together about issues and concerns of faith and God’s wondrous grace. Our service lasts approximately one hour. Communion is served on the first Sunday of every month. While all children are welcome in worship, we do have a professionally staffed nursery for infants and young children.

Our worship is planned by a worship team that works to frame services that engage and involve the entire community. We welcome every voice both in worship and in planning for it.

music at CPC

Make a joyful noise to the Lord! So the Bible tells us, and at Clarendon Presbyterian Church, we do! We enjoy a variety of musical expressions both in worship and through special concerts and coffee house performances in our newly refurbished Wilson Hall. Our choir, which practices Sunday mornings and two evenings per month, is a joyous group of church members who love to sing. If you like making music with friends, you will love the choir!

During the past year we have hosted musical evenings featuring John Bell, from the Iona Community of Scotland; the DC Chamber Brass; and singer-songwriters Noah Budin, Scott Pryor and Gillian Grassie.
