SERVICES & WORSHIP

SUNDAY WORSHIP

We gather on Sundays 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 (when we are allowed), we enjoy marking the church seasons, and we enjoy the richness of the Christian tradition in an inclusive, friendly way.

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. Not all of our usual services have resumed after the lockdown, but we will update this page as soon as there are any changes.
