Book of Common Prayer
Worship for All
On the first Sunday of each month (usually) we do something different at 9.30am. Sometimes the service includes Holy Communion, but mostly it doesn't. Girls from Guides, Brownie and Rainbows take part regularly, but not every time. Often members of the congregation are invited to do or say something"but nothing too difficult or embarrassing. It isn't a service just for children or even for families with children (Pram service on a Wednesday is good for that), but it is a place where everyone is invited to engage a bit more, to think a bit more and to move around a bit more, though not too much. And there is coffee in church afterwards, too.
