Prayer & Worship @ S Helen’s

Christians here and everywhere worship Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He is the King of creation, universal and omnipotent, who submitted himself to birth in a stable and a criminal’s death so that no-one who believes in him should ever suffer eternal damnation in hell.

He gave himself at the Last Supper to be our spiritual food, sustaining us on the Way. The bread and wine offered in the Eucharist are a sacrament: the outward, visible matter by which the inward, spiritual grace is given. Christ is present in, indeed is, the bread and wine: so it is treated with reverence.

Worship at S Helen’s emphasises Christ’s glory: rich vestments are worn; the ceremony is that of a king. The incense we use sets the day apart, sanctifies and purifies, and is itself a symbol of our prayers rising to Our Lord ascended on his throne. Along with the music and bells it also allows every sense to be involved in worship: sight; touch and taste when we take the Blessed Sacrament; hearing; and smell.  Thus, the worship at S Helen’s, although Church of England, is in the Catholic tradition.  Click here to find out more.
