This is our main weekly service where we gather as a church family. The service lasts roughly an hour and ten minutes.
As a church within the Anglo-Catholic tradition, the Eucharist (meaning thanksgiving) is at the heart of our church life. Here we welcome Christ being present among us and within the bread and wine - his body and blood. Every week there will be a sermon - a short time of teaching where the Good News found in the Bible and Jesus will be explored more deeply and how it has relevance to our lives.
At the start of the service our young people leave for Kids' Church returning for the receiving of Communion. Music, hymns and songs also play an important part in our worship life together.
We also use incense every Sunday, representing our prayers ascending to heaven. Engaging all our senses (including smell!) reminds us of our humanity and our created nature before our heavenly Father.
We receive communion gathered in a circle around the altar, a powerful reminder that we are united as the Body of Christ. We will gladly bring communion to you if standing is difficult.
At the end of the service we are sent out to 'go in peace to love and serve the Lord' - as we have received so too are we to give. This begins with our socialising over tea and coffee in which you would be more than welcome to join us in.
