More about each service

9.00 am Holy Communion

(1 hour).  Traditional, structured service with hymns. Book of Common Prayer is used on 2 Sundays per month. You are most welcome to stay for a cup of tea or (real!) coffee after the service.

10.30 am Sunday Services

(1 hour) More informal services with a mix of music styles. All ages start together in church with younger members leaving after about 10 minutes (except on All Age Worship and Messy Church Sundays) for their own activities. The service is followed by coffee and tea and an opportunity to chat.

10am service

All Age Worship  - for all ages, with younger members often playing an active part. Baptisms nomally take place in this service (roughly every 2 months).

Worship for All

Morning Service  - songs, hymns, readings, a talk, and prayers.  We listen to what God is saying to us and respond appropriately.

Holy Communion  - hymns/songs, readings, a sermon, and prayers, with the added ingredient of sharing in the symbolic fellowship-meal which Jesus gave to his followers to do in memory of him.  We share bread and wine which symbolise his body given for us, and his blood shed for us, on the cross.  How great his love is for us!  Don't worry if you do not receive the bread and wine - you won't be the only one.

Messy Church

Takes place in St Mary's Hall (next to church).
Family-friendly church with craft activites, lively worship and a shared meal. Please see our Young People section for full details.
