Our Services

Many of our services are taken from Common Worship (CW) but we do sometimes use the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) and the style of worship varies from contemporary and informal to traditional.

Our children and young people’s groups meet at 10.15am each Sunday morning along with a crèche (except on the second Sunday of the month, when we are all in church together). For full details, go to the children and youth section of our website.

Our usual pattern of services is shown below; however this is sometimes subject to change at special times of the year, such as Christmas and Easter, and will be publicised beforehand.

Sundays

8.30am Holy Communion

First & third Sundays of the month, CW; second, fourth and fifth Sundays, BCP
A spoken service, quiet and reflective in nature, with a short sermon.

10.15am Morning Service

First, third and fifth Sundays, Holy Communion (CW)
Holy Communion based on the Common Worship book, with hymns led by choir and organ and worship songs led by music group and singers. The service usually lasts about 1¼ hours.

Second Sunday, All-Age Worship
An informal contemporary service that often includes drama, visual aids, contemporary songs and creative prayer. The whole church family – adults, young people and children – is together throughout this service, which lasts about an hour.

Fourth Sunday, Morning Worship (CW)
This service is based on Common Worship Morning Prayer and, from time to time, we might focus on a particular theme or have a visiting preacher from one of the mission and relief societies we support as a church. The service usually lasts about an hour.

Baptisms and Thanksgivings

These can take place either in the Morning Service or at 12.30pm (in either case, on the second and fourth Sundays of the month)

6.30pm Evening Service

First Sunday, Evening Prayer
A service taken from Common Worship.

Second Sunday, Celtic Holy Communion
An informal Communion service reflecting the rich traditions of Celtic spirituality.

A Communion service with an opportunity for those who wish it to receive the laying on of hands for healing.

Twice a year this takes the form of a memorial service especially for those who have experienced bereavement. On the other two ‘’fifth Sundays’ we follow Evening Prayer from Common Worship.
