Services


We are currently trialling new service times and unfortunately still cannot offer refreshments after each service - but this will return!  Our new service times are 9.30am and 10.45am.  Both services are live streamed on our YouTube Channel and through our Facebook page.

We also have a variety of services to mark the Christian Calendar across the year and we will post details in our Calendar.

Praising God through music is a significant part of all our services, when we are able. If you would like to find out more about joining in with our robed choir, singing group or band, whatever your musical style or ability, please contact our Director of Music, Simon Hancock, via the Parish Office.
 
Sunday 9.30am More informal, mix of traditional hymns and worship songs

Lasting under the hour we start with all-age worship and a mix of traditional hymns and worship songs.

Children leave for their groups about 10-15 minutes in, after the ever-popular Action Song - with the emphasis currently on the action and not the song! 
On the third Sunday of each month we celebrate Holy Communion. The children return to share in this.

Our band and singing group is always keen to welcome new members.
 
Sunday 10.45am Currently, Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday. 

This is a more traditional service. Our regular choir would usually sing each Sunday and on the first Sunday of each month would be augmented to become our ‘Super Choir’ to accompany our fine organ.
 
Joint Services with both congregations At certain times in the year we usually combine our two congregations at a Joint Service when the whole church family worships and celebrates together.  Whilst social distancing is in place these are not practical, but hopefully will return to be a feature of our church life as soon as possible. 
 
 

Services at other places

Being an active part of the community in the Parish is important to us.

When allowed, we regularly take acts of worship at Care Homes in the Parish, offering Holy Communion to the residents and staff.
Helen, our Team Rector, takes Collective Worship at St Matthew's Primary School each week and leads termly services in the Church for the whole school family.  Currently all the ministry to the school is carried out online.
