1. OUR MAIN SERVICES!
For some reason known only to the developers of this website, Services and Events are listed quite some way down the left-hand column, below the various links, even though worship is (or should be) our first priority ............
.....so, to summarise, our main services during the present interregnum are:
Sundays at 930am - 1662 BCP Morning Prayer
A short, said service, to begin the day, and to prepare for the Parish Mass. The service includes the appropriate Psalm(s) and readings for the day, and is usually held in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Please do check beforehand, as it's not possible to hold this service every Sunday during the interregnum, if people are away or off sick!
Sundays at 1030am - Parish Mass/Eucharist/Holy Communion
Our principal weekly act of worship, followed by tea/coffee in the Hall.
The Ministry of Christian Healing with the Laying on of Hands and Anointing with Holy Oil is available (in the Lady Chapel) immediately after the Parish Mass on the first Sunday each month, or at other times by arrangement with the Lay Readers. This short liturgy uses the Office Book of the Society of Saint Francis, which is fully authorised by the Church of England.
Sundays at 12 noon - Holy Baptism by prior arrangement - call in at the Church on a Saturday morning 10am - 12 noon, or contact the Lay Readers (Ernie Gray - 01634 314604 and Ian Jeffery - 01634 818649)
Saturdays at 930am - Mass/Eucharist/Holy Communion or Morning Prayer
A short, said service, after which the kettle is plugged in, and the Church is open until 12 noon for baptism/wedding enquiries, private prayer, or just a look around.
First Friday each month at 230pm - Community Mass or Service of the Word in the Residents' Lounge at Prospect Place, Blake Avenue, Gillingham ME7 1FX.
A short, informal service, for residents, neighbours, staff, carers, families, and friends, this is part of our involvement in the new 'Reach @ Gillingham Pier' Fresh Expression of Church.
Other weekday/special services are held as advertised, and full details of all our Services and Events are available from the link further down the left-hand column.
