When you arrive at the church you will be welcomed, invited to sanitise your hands and shown where to sit. You will need to give your name and contact telephone number and you will be given a yellow service card which has all the words on it you say during the service. You need to keep you face mask in place through the whole service.

Please bring a small glass/plastic beaker with you in order to receive wine at communion should you wish to. If you haven't got a cup and would still like to receive, please use one of the glasses provided on a try on the side altar where the wine is distributed.

During the service we offer various forms of prayer as well as prayers for the needs of God’s world and his people. We hear readings from the Bible and homily of 10 minutes is preached. The priest leading the service offers prayers over bread and wine to celebrate the life and sacrifice of Jesus and to remind us of what he did for us. The bread is then shared out among everyone who is baptised. Please come up to the step to receive the bread holding your hands out in front of you and then move to the side altar to receive the wine.

A donation plate is left out at the end of the service for donations for the work of the church. The whole service lasts about 40 minutes.

When you arrive at the church you will be welcomed, invited to sanitise your hands and shown where to sit. You will need to give your name and contact telephone number and you need to keep you face mask in place through the whole service. You will be given a prayer book.
We start the service by saying sorry to God for the things we have said and done that have hurt or wounded others or ourselves. We then say a psalm which is a sort of poem/song from the OT that Jesus would have used in his worship. We then listen to readings from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible interspersed with two more songs from the Bible called the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimittis. There is a sermon of about 10-15 minutes and then prayers for the needs of the church, the world, our community, and those who have asked for personal prayer if they are poorly or bereaved. A collection plate is at the back of church for donations for the work of the church.
The whole service lasts about 30 minutes.

This is a special service where we share bread and wine in our own homes, but which is not blessed by a priest. An agape is literally a sort of meal, and our service is a symbol of that. There are also Bible readings, hymns and prayers with a short homily. The service lasts about 35 minutes.

These are relaxed and informal services involving children as much as possible. The services contain prayers, Bible readings, a confession, and the Lord’s Prayer. There is no sermon but at various points in the service there may be a sketch performed by the young people, a game appropriate to the theme of the Sunday, or a simple unravelling of the Gospel for the day, with plenty of visual explanation. We use inventive and expressive ways of offering prayer to God.
The whole service lasts about 40 minutes.
