SERVICES & WORSHIP

SUNDAY WORSHIP

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 Sunday 8am Eucharist or 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 Sung
Eucharist

The 10am Sung Eucharist is our main service of Holy Communion of the week. We enjoy the fullness of Christian worship, with music, and singing. We have worship and activities for children too. 

The service lasts approximately 1 hour.

Our 10am Choral 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.
