08:30 Sunday

A more traditional, quiet service in the north aisle chapel of the Parish Church. The service is in modern language from the ‘Common Worship’ book of services and alternates between Morning Prayer on the first and third Sundays and Holy Communion on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays.

08:30 Monday to Friday

Following in the tradition of the Church of England, the liturgy of Morning Prayer is said each weekday in the Memorial Chapel of the Parish Church. The service is in modern language using the Book of Common Worship and includes a Psalm, readings from the Old and New Testaments, canticles and prayers. It lasts for about half an hour and is a good way of preparing oneself for the rigours of the day ahead.

10:00 Thursday

Our mid-week Common Worship Communion Service in the north aisle chapel of the Parish Church. The service usually includes a hymn, sung unaccompanied, and a short sermon or homily. Refreshments are shared afterwards. The third Thursday of each month takes the form of a Healing Service.

10:30 Sunday

The Parish Church’s 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!

15:00 Sunday
