During the summer holidays, our 9.30am and 11.15am services combine to meet at 10am for a Family Worship service. Our regular service pattern (shown below) resumes on 1 September.
8am 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.
9.30am 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 the month when we stay in the church for All Age Worship. We share communion on the 4th Sunday of the month. The style of worship is mainly contemporary.
11.15am Morning Worship
This is a more formal service following the Common Worship liturgy, which alternates between Holy Communion on the 1st and 3rd Sundays, and Morning Prayer on the 2nd, 4th and 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.
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.
