SUNDAY Church Services
Holy Communion 8:00am
There is a said service of Holy Communion each Sunday in the Chancel. Most Sundays this is Common Worship; on the first Sunday the 1662 Book of Common Prayer is used in traditional language.
The main Parish Eucharist is at 10:15.
The Vicar leads a team of servers to celebrate 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.
All Age Eucharist 10:15am
On the third Sunday of each month, the Parish Eucharist is an All Age 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 and the screen is often used. 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.
Listening Prayer Ministry
Immediately following the 10:15 service on most Sundays in the Holy Redeemer Chapel
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.
Time for God
At 5pm on the first Sunday there is an informal Time for God service in 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 Reflections
At 6pm on the third Sunday, there is a service of music and reflections.
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.
