If you are unfamiliar with any of our services we hope these notes will be of use to you and that we will be able to welcome you into our Parish family:

Our normal* service pattern is as follows :

  • Every Sunday at 8am – Holy Communion - a traditional said celebration of the Eucharist taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer (BCP)
  • 1st Sunday of each month at 10am - Family Communion - a less formal service of Holy Communion using an altar in the nave.  At this service, the music is provided by the worship band and singers, children and young people are encouraged to actively participate. The Sunday Club provide readers from its members and, where appropriate, prayers, taking of the collection and assisting at the altar is also undertaken by junior members of our church family. Coffee is served afterwards.
