SERVICES & WORSHIP

SUNDAY WORSHIP & FESTIVALS

On Sundays and Church Festivals we gather to celebrate all that God is and all that God has done. We offer God songs and words of praise; we attend to God’s words in Scripture; we offer prayers for our own needs and the needs of the world; and we gather around God’s table in Holy Communion. 

 

Our services are accessible for all ages, and we encourage all people to participate as fully as they are able. 

Our worship is largely sacramental; we like to sing (at certain services), we enjoy marking the church seasons, and we enjoy the richness of the Christian tradition in an inclusive, friendly way. 

8am Holy
Communion

Our 8am Sunday Holy Communion service is a quiet and reflective service.  We follow the same themes and readings as the main 10am service, and there is a short sermon.

The service lasts approximately 40 minutes.

10am Parish Eucharist

The 10am Parish Eucharist is our main service of Holy Communion of the week. We enjoy the fullness of Christian worship, with music, and singing. We have a children's corner with books, toys and activity sheets, aimed at younger children. 

The service lasts approximately 1 hour.

Live
Stream

Our 10am Parish Eucharist is Live Streamed on YouTube. Don't worry if you miss it live, you can catch up with our services through the week. Words to the readings etc. are available in our weekly notices.

 
WORSHIP DURING THE WEEK

We don't just worship God on a Sunday. There are other ways to pray and praise, and to find peace and calm during the week. 

Morning Prayer

Monday to Thursday, 9am.

Morning Prayer is a simple, said service with readings, psalms and prayers, and lasts about 20 minutes. We have prayer books available, but you may find it more convenient to download the Church of England's Daily Prayer app below. 

Private Prayer

Time and space to sit in church and pray is set aside on Wednesday between Morning prayer and Holy Communion

Any other time our church is open, you are welcome to sit and pray.

Wednesdays at 10:30am.

The simple service lasts around half an hour.
