Services

From traditional services to informal worship, we hope you will a service that feels like home.

SUNDAY WORSHIP – PARISH CHURCH

Church-028:30 Holy Communion/Morning Prayer
A more traditional, quiet service in modern language from the ‘Common Worship’ services. This service alternates between Morning Prayer on the first and third Sundays and Holy Communion on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays.

10:30 Family Service
Our family-friendly service of worship, teaching and ministry with children’s and youth programmes. The service lasts approximately 90 minutes. Holy Communion is typically on the first and third Sundays of the month. Music is a blend of traditional hymns with organ accompaniment, and modern songs with keyboard, guitar and drums. All words are projected on screens so there is no fumbling with books and freeing hands for more enthusiastic worship – if so desired!

Children & Youth provision
Our Young Church and Youth (School years: Reception to year 9) attend the first part of the service with their families, going out to their respective groups after an action song every Sunday during term time, except when we have our all-age celebration. For more details of our children’s and youth activities, click here. Younger children are able to remain with their parents in the service, with a crèche available for more privacy.

All-age Celebration
Once a month (on the second Sunday) we bring together our whole church family in our all-age celebration. With songs, drama, and activities there is something for everyone, no matter how old they feel.
