Parish Eucharist 10:15am
The main Parish Eucharist is at 10:15.
The Vicar leads a team of servers to deliver Communion. The Choir will sing an anthem during Communion and other music will be introduced as appropriate to the setting. Incense is used on festivals and other appropriate occasions. Common Worship is always used, with the Eucharistic prayer and other parts of the service varying according to the season.
Listening Prayer Ministry
Immediately following the 10:15 service on most Sundays
Anyone who has a problem they would like to share and be prayed for, or a happy event to give thanks for, can speak in total confidence to one of our small prayer team who will listen and pray with you. This can also take the form of a 'laying on of hands' as an outward sign of God's blessing, if you would like and feel comfortable with that. We place before God, the hope of any healing or a solution to a problem.
On the third Sunday of each month, the Parish Eucharist is a Family Eucharist.
Younger people, families and those new to the Church are particularly encouraged to attend this. The format follows the regular pattern of worship but particular emphasis is placed on appropriate hymns, songs and other music. The address is normally aimed at younger people who are encouraged to take part by reading lessons, leading intercessions and performing small pieces of music.
Time for God
At 5pm on all Sundays, except the third Sunday, there is an informal Time for God service in the Church.
This is particularly appropriate for younger people and their families. The service lasts about half an hour and on the first Sunday of the month, includes Communion. The service concludes with tea and cake after 5.30pm.
Music and Reflection
At 6pm on the third Sunday, there is a service of music and reflection.
Occasionally, there is an occasional fully choral Evensong, according to the Book of Common Prayer, with full settings for the responses and canticles sung by the Choir.
