Worship

Worship lies at the heart of our Christian life together. Our worship draws on a number of different traditions. We value sounds and silence, words and action, the old and the new, the formal and the informal. Visitors can expect a warm welcome at any and all of our services.

 

Sundays

10.00 am (first Sunday of the month) All Age Communion  A family-friendly service of sights and sounds, words and music. Children and adults stay in church together for the whole service. The perfect introduction if you're new to church.

10.00 am Parish Communion (other Sundays)  Our main Sunday service with choir and organ, with hymns traditional and modern. We sing many parts of the service together. Children come in for the first part of the service, then leave to enjoy Children's Church, before returning in time to join the adult congregation for communion or a blessing. Following the service there is tea and coffee, and often cake, in the church hall.

4.00 pm Families@ Four (every Sunday during term time)  Fun and worship for families with young children, with singing, stories and easy crafts for little fingers. See our Families@ Four Newsletter for more information.

6.30 pm Evensong (said Evening Prayer on the last Sunday in the month)  A quiet, contemplative service from the 1662 Prayer Book, with choir, hymns, anthem and sermon.

 

Weekdays 

Monday to Friday: 8.30 am Morning Prayer; 4.45 pm Evening Prayer  Short services of prayers and readings, at which we pray daily for our parish and community, and for the wider world. Please note: occasionally Morning or Evening Prayer may need to be cancelled at short notice.

Wednesday: 9.30 am Holy Communion  A quiet, prayerful service with a homily or short sermon.

Thursday (during term time): 10.00 am Tiddlers Prayer and Praise  Part of our Tiddlers toddler group (see Church Organisations page for more details). A short time of singing, stories, and fun for toddlers and parents/carers.
