Which Service for you? 
Our 8.00 am service is always *Holy Communion from the Book of Common Prayer (the traditional 1662 prayer book). It is a quiet service without music. 
 
Starting in June 2015, at 10.00 am on the third Sunday of the month we have an informal Cafe-style **Church for Everyone. This is informal, of special interest to families and will take place at the back of church. 
 
On the other Sundays of the month the 10.00 am service is either **Holy Communion, from Common Worship, or *** Morning Prayer. 
 
** Holy Communion, known also as ‘The Eucharist’, ‘The Lord’s Supper’ or ‘Mass’ is a service of readings and prayers that lead up to a symbolic sharing of bread and wine in remembrance of Jesus’ Last Supper. 
In addition Holy Communion from Common Worship includes hymns and some sung responses. All services include a sermon or talk or other narrative lasting between 5 and 15 minutes.  
 
*** Morning Prayer, at 10am on the 1st Sunday of the month, is a straightforward, 
easy to follow service lasting about 45min.The form of the service follows Common Worship and includes hymns and a sermon.  
It is usually led by a Licensed Lay Minister (Reader) 
 
A Summer Rota operates in August: - 
Only one Holy Communion service each Sunday at either 8am or 10am. 
Our church is open daily, during daylight hours, for private prayer.  
 
Please join us on Mondays, EXCEPT BANK HOLIDAYS, for Coffee and Company 10-30am - 11.30am. Everyone is welcome. 
No Coffee and Company in December, January or February. 
 
Just drop in and join us! 
 
We are delighted that the number of people joining us on a Monday for coffee and a chat has grown. We have enjoyed the company of both church and village friends as well as the occasional walkers or visitors to Downton and St Laurence.
