PARISH

EUCHARIST

 Sundays 10am

This is our main weekly service where we gather as a church family. The service lasts roughly an hour and ten minutes. 

As a church within the Anglo-Catholic tradition, the Eucharist (meaning thanksgiving) is at the heart of our church life. Here we welcome Christ being present among us and within the bread and wine - his body and blood. Every week there will be a sermon - a short time of teaching where the Good News found in the Bible and Jesus will be explored more deeply and how it has relevance to our lives.

At the start of the service our young people leave for Kids' Church returning for the receiving of Communion. Music, hymns and songs also play an important part in our worship life together.

We also use incense every Sunday, representing our prayers ascending to heaven. Engaging all our senses (including smell!) reminds us of our humanity and our created nature before our heavenly Father.

We receive communion gathered in a circle around the altar, a powerful reminder that we are united as the Body of Christ. We will gladly bring communion to you if standing is difficult.

At the end of the service we are sent out to 'go in peace to love and serve the Lord' - as we have received so too are we to give. This begins with our socialising over tea and coffee in which you would be more than welcome to join us in.

This is a short, said service using Common Worship and usually attracts a smaller congregation 

 

The service normally includes a short homily and is followed by refreshments.

Why not stay on and join us for our Community Cafe at 12pm.

MORNING PRAYER

 

Tuesday 9am

Wednesday 9am

Saturday 9am

Prayer is at the heart of what we do as Christians. There is no better way to begin a day than resting in God's presence, hearing His word revealed in scripture and offering to Him our cares and petitions.

 

This is a short service lasting about fifteen minutes. It follows Common Worship and usually includes one or two readings from the Bible, a Psalm and a space for prayer.

Please note: on occasion, Morning Prayer will be on a Thursday rather than a Tuesday. Please check the home page for live service information.   

 

 

We are delighted to introduce a monthly sung Evensong. 

 

This uses the Book of Common Prayer, the central Anglican prayer book. Using beautiful and traditional language, large parts of this service are sung and results in a beautiful end to the day as we devote all we have done in it and the remainder of the evening.
