At the beginning of September 2021 we started a new pattern of services. The Covid lockdown forced rapid change on us, but it also gave us an opportunity to reflect on what we were doing and a chance to change.
Everyone is welcome to try out one of these services - there is always an opportunity to re-start, to try something new, to explore the chance to get to know Jesus.
A relaxed service with a straightforward structure, which will alternate between Holy Communion and a service which will focus on gathering to pray, praise and hear the Bible read and explained. We sing a mixture of hymns and more recent songs and services will last about an hour.
1st Sunday of the month
8.30AM HOLY COMMUNION
A simple service of Holy Communion in modern language that lasts around 45 minutes with no music or singing.
It's difficult to predict what you'll find at 6pm. For one thing, during winter months (while the clock is on GMT) it will be at 4.30pm! But the style will change from month to month - through the autumn of 2021 it will be a simple service of Compline, or Night Prayer, with space for silence and reflection one month, a prolonged time of singing praise and worship the next, and Holy Communion the third.
Every other Wednesday
HOLY COMMUNION ON WEDNESDAY AT 10.30AM
Similar to the 8.30am service on Sundays, a simple service which lasts around 45 minutes.
3PM WORSHIP FOR ALL AGES
Before lockdown we ran both a Messy Church and a Breakfast Church. This will take elements from both, but - for the time being - be a slightly modified version to keep Covid-prevention measures in place. It will include singing, craft activities and more.
