2. WORSHIPING

WORSHIPING AT ST PAUL'S:

Temporarily suspended. We will resume the normal activities indicated below as soon as it will be possible.

Our services are a mix of traditional and modern prayers/hymns, to permit everybody to pray God and be nurtured.

Our main Sunday worship is at 10.30am, and follows a BCP Holy Communion at 9.15am.

The monthly pattern of our main service is: Holy Communion on the 1st, 2nd and 5th Sunday; All-Age Worship on the 3rd Sunday (service without Holy Communion); Family Holy Communion on the 4th Sunday.

During the week, we celebrate a Holy Communion every Wednesday at 10.00am (once a month with children and teachers of the school). But this pattern may vary some months because of special services (check with the 'Calendar of forthcoming services and events' on 'Services and Events').

All our services are projected on a giant screen, with attractive PowerPoint Presentations, to permit everybody to be more involved in the worship. And we are also blessed to have an organist (1st, 2nd and 4th Sunday) or a Music Group (3rd Sunday) to accompany our singing.


WORSHIPING AS A FAMILY:

All our worships are family friendly. But in some, children will be more involved: in the monthly Sunday Family Holy Communion (usually on the 4th Sunday of a month) and the monthly All-Age Worship (without Holy Communion, on the 3rd Sunday of a month) with the Uniformed Organisations (Rainbows, Brownies and Guides). Our school is also regularly invited to our Sunday worship for special services during the year.

Children receive instruments of music and activities sheet with colouring pens if they want to stay with their parents during the service; otherwise, they are welcome to go to play in our Children Corner in the back room, under the supervision of one of their parents/guardians.

Messy Church is held on the first Sunday of every month at 2.30pm, allowing parents and children to have a quality time together: after making together some craft activities around a Bible story, they have together a short service.
