Descriptions Of Our Services - There will be no Services until further notice
Please find below a list of our regular weekly services along with a small descripton as to what to expect from each service.
In addition to our regular weekly services there are services held in church to celebrate important dates in the churches calendar.
Sunday 8.00am Holy Communion
At this service we use the Book of Common Prayer (The Prayer Book). It is a said service which lasts for about forty minutes. Those who attend this service appreciate the traditional language that is found in the Prayer Book whilst worshipping in a quieter setting.
Sunday 9.30am Parish Communion
On all Sundays of the month we have a Parish Communion Service. This service is a more traditional service using Common Worship with hymns, Bible readings and a sermon. There is a Sunday school for primary school age children. This meets in Church and then moves into the Parish Room before rejoining the service in time for Communion and to tell the congregation what they have learnt. This service lasts for about an hour. Following the service refreshments are served.
Sunday 11.30am All Age Service
On the first Sunday of each month we have an All Age Service. An informal service for all ages. The uniformed organisations present their flags and everyone is invited to take part in the service. Well known hymns and Worship songs are chosen and those who have had a birthday in the previous month are sung to. The service lasts for thirty minutes. Refreshments are served before the service which allows an opportunity to meet and get to know people.
Sunday 6.00pm Evensong
(2nd and 4th Sundays)
On the second and fourth Sundays of the month we have a service of Evensong. This is a traditional service taken from the Prayer Book. It includes hymns, psalm which is sung, sung responses, bible readings, homily (short sermon), prayers and on occasions the choir may sing an anthem. The service lasts for about forty five minutes.
Sunday 6.00pm Alternative Service
On the third Sunday of the month we hold an alternative service. See the Parish News each month for further details.
This service lasts for about an hour.
Wednesday 10.00am mid - week Holy Communion
Every Wednesday morning we have a mid-week Holy Communion service held at 10.00am. This service is the same as the 8.00am Sunday service. We use the Prayer Book and the bible readings from the previous Sunday. Once a month extra bread and wine is blessed during the service to be taken out into the parish for those who receive communion at home.
Morning Prayer is held in church Monday to Friday at 9.00am. This short act of worship lasts for thirty minutes and offers a great start to the day. It consists of reading from the bible and prayers. All are welcome.
