9.30 AM Service

Occuring
Every Sunday at for 1 hour
Venue
Runwell: St Mary
Address
Runwell Road Runwell Wickford, SS117HS, United Kingdom

Our Services at 9.30 am are most regularly a Eucharist but there is Morning Praise every third Sunday and an All-Age Service on the third Sunday in each month.

The Church gathers primarily for worship, to celebrate all that God is and all that God has done, to be drawn into the life of the Trinity: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We offer God songs and words of praise in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. We attend to God’s words in Scripture. We gather around the table of the Lord in the Holy Communion. We offer prayers for our own needs and the needs of the world. When we do this we join our prayers – thin and weak as they often are – with the great hymn of praise of the Church in both earth and heaven, in time and in eternity.

The Eucharist or Holy Communion is celebrated by the whole people of God gathered for worship. The ministry of the members of the congregation is expressed through their active participation together in the words and actions of the service, but also by some of them reading the Scripture passages, leading the prayers of intercession, and, if authorized, assisting with the distribution of communion.
