Worship is central to the life of Christ Church Cranbrook, and the Eucharist and Baptism are central to our work as a praying community. In following Jesus’s commandments to gather at God’s table and to bring new members into Christ’s body by water and the Spirit, we believe we are living out the Gospel warrant to be agents of love, healing, forgiveness, and blessing in a beautiful but broken world. We gather for Eucharist every Saturday night and Sunday and for Baptism (and the renewal of our Baptismal Covenant) on the four yearly occasions set forth in our church calendar. In the Eucharist we are sustained with nourishment for the journey of faith. In Baptism we are commissioned as ministers of God’s love.
