Tell me more about Clarendon Presbyterian Church's Worship service: 

Our services include sermons reflecting on the Bible and God's call for us for today, beautiful live music, shared prayers and liturgy, and time after service for fellowship in small groups. 

We are a LGBTQIA+ celebrating congregation, so our services seek to celebrate all of God's beautiful creation.  We are also a people of faith and of doubt, so our words spoken seek to reflect our backgrounds and perspectives. 

We gather for communion (the Lord's Supper) served on the first Sunday of every month as part of the worship service. We will provide communion.  For safety reasons, you are also welcome to bring your own.  All are invited (but certainly not required) to participate in communion. 

We welcome every voice both in worship and in planning for it.  Contact Pastor Alice with questions about worship at CPC or for information about weddings and memorial services.

music at CPC

Make a joyful noise to the Lord! So the Bible tells us, and at Clarendon Presbyterian Church, we do! Music is very important to us at Clarendon Presbyterian Church.  At this time when our choir is unable to meet (we want to do our best to keep everyone safe), we invite individuals to provide a solo as part of our virtual worship.  

We have welcomed members from the CPC community to provide the gift of song.  We have also hosted professional musicians including Lea Morris, Gillian Grassie, the GenOUT Chorus (video), Matt Black and Justin Ritchie.

In recent past we have hosted special nights for music featuring John Bell, from the Iona Community of Scotland; the DC Chamber Brass; and singer-songwriters Noah Budin, Scott Pryor and Gillian Grassie.
