Worship

“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.”

Psalm 150:6

Worship is at the heart of all we do at St. David’s. From the multiple regular services on Sundays to the great services of the church year, we are a worshiping community who come together to offer our praise and prayers to God and to grow in community in the presence of the Lord. We encourage you to join us often to enter more deeply into the worship of God.
