We offer FOUR distinctive services every Sunday.
8.00am Holy Communion
This is generally a much simpler and quieter service, with said liturgy and a short talk.
We use contemporary language and the service lasts no more than 40 minutes.
9.30am Parish Eucharist
This is a full liturgical and ceremonial Eucharist with a team of ministers and servers.
It includes sung worship supported and led by the excellent choir and organist.
We use modern language and a challenging address is an important part of the service.
Incense is used for major feasts.
Children can use the play and activity area at the back of the church, but generally prefer one of the other services.
All are welcome at this Eucharist, which usually lasts a little over 1 hour and is followed by refreshments. If you are unfamiliar with this type of service or new to our church, ask one of the welcomers to help you.
This is a much more relaxed service, designed to allow young and old to worship and learn together.
Led by a singer or small music group, with all age activities, it tackles the same readings as the other services.
We often show videos and have discussions along with a stimulating address.
Sometimes we offer separate activities for some of the young people.
We have tea and excellent coffee before and after, cake and sometimes fuller refreshments!
The service lasts about 45 minutes.
Most Sundays we have a short service in traditional language with a couple of hymns and an address at 6.00.
Check the calendar to see what and when. It is sometimes said without music, but sometimes is choral evensong led by a choir.
Once a month on the 3rd Sunday we have a Celtic service with a meditation and prayer for Healing and Wholeness.
These services last no more than 45 minutes. Only the healing service continues during the summer vacation.
5.30pm Said Eucharist on Saturday Evening
If you want to honour your Sunday Eucharistic commitment but are tied up Sunday, we offer a simple said Eucharist on Saturday evening. It uses the readings and the prayers for the following day and counts towards your own (and the church's!) Sunday attendance statistics.
