The Parish Eucharist and Sunday School
Our main service takes place each week on Sunday morning at 10am and lasts an hour and a half, and we always have refreshments afterwards.
The word Eucharist means thanksgiving and we meet together give to God our thanks and praise, to offer our prayers and to receive from God.
Its about taking some time to open ourselves, our lives, to God (Jesus Christ, our founder member, based his life on this principle).
We do this together, because it is often by giving to and receiving from one another that we can hear God, and receive from God.
During this service we have Noah's Ark which begins at 9.55am for our children. We offer First Communion for all our children rising 7 years, they have a few months training.
Once a month we have an 'All Age' service when young and old worship together for the whole service.
We also have our own singing group, they sometimes sing songs on their own during the service.
Thursday, 10am Holy Communion
Most weeks in the year, on a Thursday morning at 10 o'clock there is a service of Holy Communion using the traditional 'Prayer Book' service. This service takes place in the Lady Chapel, entrance is via the side door.
We are always ready to provide other services - Marriage, Funerals, Blessings and Memorial Services.
