In Bishopstoke there are two Church of England buildings – St Mary’s and St Paul’s, but we are one Christian ‘family’ and we are here for the whole community.  Our motto is Showing and Sharing God’s Love.  Please take a look at the services and events for both of our church buildings to see the full range of what we offer.  There is more information on our own website (see to the right on this page).  You are always very welcome to come along to something or get in touch.  We look forward to hearing from you or meeting you.

A standard Church of England communion service using modern language liturgy, with hymns played on the organ and a sermon. Followed by refreshments. This takes place only on the first Sunday of each month at St Mary's and is the only communion service for that day. There is no service at St Paul's on that morning and there is no special provision for children during the service. If you have children, you may like to try Messy Church during the afternoon, from 4 - 6 pm at St Paul's Church.

Church Together
A service for all ages to be truly church together from the smallest child to the oldest adult! It includes songs and prayers suitable for everyone, and for the middle section (about 20 minutes) we move into Explore Zones around the church to respond to the Bible passage for the day. The zones are very varied so that there is something for everyone to enjoy and take part in. They generally include all or most of these: Word Zone e.g. reading different versions of the Bible passage and thinking about them Listen Zone e.g. listening to a talk on the passage Quiet Zone e.g. reflecting on a reading or some prayers by yourself Busy Zone e.g. making a model while you chat with others Colour Zone e.g. drawing or colouring a picture while you chat with others Chat Zone e.g. a short Bible study on the passage, led by a member of the church
