Sung Eucharist at 10:30am

This is our principal Sunday service it is a Eucharist (also called "Holy Communion", "Mass" or the "Lord's Supper"). The service is in contemporary language and includes hymns and readings. It typically lasts around an hour and 15 minutes. After the service tea and coffee are served at the back of church for those who wish to stay, have a chat and meet their fellow members of the congregation,

During school term time usually on the Second Sunday of the month we are joined by our uniformed organisations for a Parade Service. This is also a Eucharist but the service time is around an hour.

During term time when it is not a parade service our Sunday School meets in the Maxim Room. The children start in church at 10:30, leaving the service after a few minutes and return in time for the distribution of communion or a blessing for those who are not yet communicants.

Holy Communion at 8am

This service using the traditional Book of Common Prayer lasts around half an hour. During the winter months this service is held in the Maxim Room but in the warmer summer months it is held in the church itself.


Holy Communion Wednesday at 9:30am

Morning Prayer - Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 8:30am
