Holy Communion Common Worship

Every Wednesday at 10 a.m. for 45m
Add to my calendar

Oldham Road

The Wednesday Eucharist is a said service of Holy Communion. This is a gentle and quiet service with all welcome to receive the bread of Holy Communion (not wine at present because of Covid-19). A short reflection may be given. Sadly, we are not able to offer refreshments after the service at the moment but look forward to the day when we are able to do so again.
