What can I expect on a Sunday?

Sunday mornings at Holmeswood are vibrant and meaningful. We employ an ancient liturgy with a blended style of worship using traditional elements like choirs, handbells and hymns accompanied by our pianist, along with more contemporary songs and choruses led by a praise team utilizing the piano, drums and guitars. Any given Sunday brings an eclectic mix of music, Scripture readings, prayers, and congregational participation that points our focus, attention and devotion toward our Creator God. During this time of COVID-19, our Worship looks a little different; you can wear your pajamas as you sit at home and join us! Even though 2020 has brought many changes, the love of God never changes as we Worship our beloved Creator and Jesus each day. Our formal time of Worship is 9:00 am online on Facebook; however, we are learning that Worship can take place on your afternoon walk, while washing dishes, having a leisurely phone call with a friend and through many other ways. Worship is about connecting with God intentionally and remembering that God guides us through all parts of life, particularly in the moments of grief, stress, confusion and the unknown. God is here. And our community comes together to spend time with God and each other in all sorts of ways, as we also stay healthy and love our neighbors by physically distancing at this time.


Even during COVID, we gather for worship first and then interact with each other in Bible Fellowship Groups (BFGs) following worship. This gives BFGs an opportunity to extend class or to go directly from class to lunch or other activities. This schedule also means that more of the Sabbath is yours to determine. The possibilities are endless! 

What should I wear? (while on campus)

At Holmeswood you will find people dressed in their "Sunday best" or sporting a more casual look with jeans. We want you to be yourself and to be comfortable, whether that means dressing up or dressing down.
