Every Sunday: 8am: Holy Communion (Common Worship Order 1, Traditional). This is a modern service but uses traditional language e.g. “Thou” and “thy” rather than “You” and “yours.” It is a quiet service to start your Sunday off gently. There is no music or hymns.
Every Sunday except the first Sunday of the month: 9.30am: Parish Holy Communion (Common Worship Order 1, Contemporary). This service is the main service of worship for the parish for the whole week. It is a service of Holy Communion (also called the Eucharist, the Lord’s Supper or the Mass) with music and hymns. During the main part of the service the children have their own activities in Junior Church, joining their parents at Communion itself. Whether you are used to receiving Holy Communion or not we try to make everyone feel welcome and included. To learn more about Confirmation and Holy Communion go to “I want God in my life.”
First Sunday of the month 9.30am: All Age Communion. This is the main service as on other Sundays but during this service the children stay in all the way through the service. The service is shorter and the hymns are chosen with young and old in mind. The sermon or talk slot is aimed at the young and the young at heart!
11am Matins: From the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, this service is in traditional language. On the first Sunday of the month when there is a small choir, this is a service of choral matins with sung responses and hymns. The other Sundays it is a said service but still with hymns..
