The Anglican Church of the Resurrection conducts a Eucharist service each Sunday at 5:00 PM. We meet at the home of the South Chatham Community Church, 2555 Main Street, South Chatham, MA 02659. This is at the corner of Rt. 28 and Mill Creek Road near the South Chatham and Harwich town line.
In July, August, and Labor Day Weekend ACR adds to its schedule, with a short worship service on Breakwater Beach in Brewster at 7:30 AM.
The beach service is short, very casual in dress, and very fun. The Eucharist (Lord’s Supper) is not offered and an offering is not taken. For those, you can go to our 5 PM service. What is offered is a short, very fun worship experience right on the beach, with waves in the background, in all of God’s glory!
To get to Breakwater Beach, enter Brewster on 6A and look for the side road “Breakwater Beach”. it will take you right by the parking lot for Breakwater Beach.

Periodically at someone’s home we’ll have a time of prayer and song in a form called Taizé, which has gathered a growing following around the world. In short, it is a time of prayer and personal reflection enhanced by short songs, a bit of scripture, and both spoken and silent prayers. “Taizé” is the name of an ecumenical community in France founded in 1940 by Roger Schutz, a Protestant. As a practice of prayer, beautiful short musical prayers that are repeated 5 times or so were found to be helpful in personal reflection. These are interspersed by a reading of scripture and periods of spoken and silent prayer.
When we worship and pray in this way, we gather at someone’s home in the early evening. There will be a small number of musical instruments, perhaps an acoustical guitar, a cello, a violin, and a piano on a good night. There will be about a dozen of us, and we’re each given a Taizé songbook and an order of service listing the songs we’ll sing, the times we pray, and a scripture lesson in the order that we do them. We’ll fellowship a little, assign parts for leading prayer or reading scripture, and then begin. It’s quiet, relaxing, centering, peaceful, a very spiritual experience.
When we Taize’ we will announce it in church, post it here in ‘Upcoming Events’, and you may also call the church telephone number of (508) 968-2550.
