The Wilderness

  • An Ancient-Future Liturgy

    This evening service allows attendees to look inward and explore different prayer exercises. A lay team designs season-specific prayer stations, complete with original music and visuals and liturgical texts both ancient and new, offering worshipers the space to engage the contemporary world with integrity and creativity.

    Please note that we are not hosting the Wilderness at this time due to COVID-19.

     

Each Sunday evening at 6:00 pm, we worship in the context of thoughtfully designed seasons of intention, with a nave filled with incense, original music and visuals, and liturgical texts in language new and ancient.

  • Music at the Wilderness

    The Wilderness Band produces original work for worship each Sunday night. They work with other local musicians to bring intentional genres of music for various liturgical seasons and work with local artists, such as interpretive dancers to shed light on the readings for the day.

  • This Season in the Wilderness

    Each liturgical season brings a new focus for the Wilderness service. Lay volunteers work with Canon Broderick to create prayer stations that focus on a single phrase, image, or theme throughout the weeks of the season. The eucharistic prayers change seasonally to correspond to the Church Year’s shifting ethos.

    If you are interested in working with Canon Broderick and Sacristan Emily Smith to plan the next Wilderness season, please contact Emily.

A voice cries out in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.’

Isaiah 40:3
