Morning Worship is a traditional morning service, which takes about 45 minutes.
Choral Communion is a traditional communion service. Those who have been confirmed can come up to the altar for the bread and wine, and those who haven't can come up for a blessing or are welcome to remain in their seats. Often, the choir will be there and some parts of the service will be sung. This usually lasts an hour.
Cafe Church is a very informal gathering. The church will be open from 10:30 to around 12 noon, with refreshments available throughout -sometimes in the church hall - giving an opportunity to meet people, socialise and chat. There might be activities for children, and they are always most welcome - no need for 'good' behaviour! There is a short 'reflection' at around 11 am. Please come and join us, whether you are a church regular, occasional visitor, or totally new to us!
The Holy Communion service at 8:30 is from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, but there are no hymns or singing and takes only around 30 minutes. It makes a good start to a Sunday for those who have a hectic day ahead.
