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. 
 
At 10.00 am on the first Sunday of the month we have an All-Age Worship service. This is an informal service of special interest to families. 
 
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 3rd 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)
