Services


We generally meet at 9:15 am and 11 am for our Sunday Services and sometimes combine the two services for a service at 10.30am. Refreshments are served after each service so please do stay for a coffee and a chat - it's a good way to begin to get to know people.

We 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. 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 9.15 am Traditional with robed choir and organ 

Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday apart from the third Sunday of the month when we hold a service of Morning Prayer.

The 9.15 service is a traditional service with robed choir and organ. Our regular choir sings each Sunday and on the first Sunday of each month is augmented to become our ‘Super Choir’ to accompany our fine organ.
 
Sunday 11 am More informal, mix of traditional hymns and worship songs

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

Children leave for their groups about 15 minutes in, after the ever-popular Action Song.
On the third Sunday of each month we celebrate Holy Communion. The children return to share in this.

Our band and singing group at 11am is always keen to welcome new members.
 
10:30 am
on certain Sundays
Joint Services with both congregations

At certain times in the year we combine our two congregations at a Joint Service at 10.30am when the whole church family worships and celebrates together.
 
 

Services at other places

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

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.
