HOLY WEEK AND EASTER SERVICES
0800 Holy Communion
This is a contemplative, spoken service of Holy Communion, following either Common Worship (1st, 3rd & 5th Sundays) or the Book of Common Prayer (2nd and 4th Sundays), and includes a short sermon based on the lectionary readings. Coffee and croissants are served after the service.
0930 Family Service
This is a time for the whole family to come to church for worship, teaching and fellowship. Each Sunday, we gather in church for 15 minutes together before the 0-14s go to their groups, apart from the 1st Sunday of each month when we stay in church for All Age Worship. We share communion on the 4th Sunday of the month. The style of worship is mainly contemporary, although we do enjoy singing a hymn with the organ on most Sundays! There is a Fair Trade stall after the service on the 2nd Sunday in the month.
This is a more formal service following Common Worship liturgy with robed clergy, which alternates between Holy Communion on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, and Morning Prayer of the 2nd, 4th & 5th Sundays. The music is led by a small choir, an organist/pianist, and occasionally other instrumentalists, and generally comprises congregational hymns, lyrical worship songs and other liturgical music. There is a Fair Trade stall after the service on the 2nd Sunday in the month.
This is an informal service with lively sung worship led by a band, vibrant teaching, and space for prayer ministry during or after the service. We share communion on the 2nd and 5th Sundays.
8pm Taizé Service
Taizé services usually take place on the last Sunday of the month. Following its characteristic pattern, services are an informal gathering with a simple liturgy of songs, readings, prayers and silence, and last under an hour. All are welcome.
