**CURRENTLY ONLINE AND IN CHURCH**
In church
Meet together in church for our morning service, with some parts ‘in person’ and others ‘online’ displayed on the screens – it’s lovely to gather together and draw close to God. We’d love to see you there.

To make it as easy as possible for everyone to attend, booking will not be necessary for the moment. However, as there is limited capacity in church due to the social distancing measures required (about 50 people, depending on the number of household bubbles), seats will be offered on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, and entry may be limited if the church reaches full capacity. The situation will be reviewed regularly, and booking may be reintroduced once attendance increases.

Our children's and youth groups, Kidz Ablaze, are running in the church halls. Please email Caz at [email protected] or Jez at [email protected] to book a place.

We are taking all necessary steps to keep everyone as safe as possible, and appreciate your help. Further information about ‘Staying safe’ when attending church can be found here.

Online
Morning praise will also be made available online via our website and YouTube channel. Everyone is welcome, so invite your friends!

On the fourth Sunday of the month, we’ll be including a short Agape thanksgiving, so be prepared with bread and wine/juice (or suitable alternative).

We can still join ‘together at home’ and unite in our worship.

Traditional Communion

at 9 a.m. for 45m

32 Colemore Road
Bournemouth

Add to my calendar

**CURRENTLY ONLINE**
The 9am service is a traditional Communion service, sometimes with hymns accompanied by our organist. It often follows the Book of Common Prayer (1662), which is loved for the beauty of its language and the contemplation and quiet it provides.

Between 20-30 people meet to worship at this time, so usually we gather in the church’s choir stalls. This service generally lasts about 30-45 minutes, and all are welcome to stay for coffee and croissants in the Link afterwards.
