Sunday Services

Sunday services

Our Sunday services come in two flavours:  At 10am there is the Parish Eucharist during which, in term-time, Sunday School  groups run for children from nursery school age to year 9.

There is – throughout the year – a creche for smaller children and the Cromwell Room, separated from the main church by a glass wall, is set apart for babies and toddlers to play as their adults sit with them and take part in the service. We hope that the Parish Eucharist is an un-fussy but reverential communion service using traditional hymns and thought-provoking sermons to enable people to re-charge their batteries for the coming week.

We offer teas and coffees after the 10am service in the Church on the first Sunday of the month and every other Sunday upstairs in The Lancaster Hall to give ourselves an opportunity to meet others in the congregation. Please do introduce yourself to the member of clergy or one of the wardens if you are a newcomer.

For those wanting more peace and quiet, Caritas, at 6pm, is a tranquil, reflective service of Holy Communion.

We offer refreshments after the Caritas service on the 4th Sunday of every month.

Both services last an hour.

Children’s Services

Children's worship

Each school week there are either Sunday school sessions or services appropriate for children. Jumping for Joy is a fun session of songs, story, craft and prayers suitable for babies to children of about 7.  Emmaus is intended for the older children.  We run Emmaus and Jumping for Joy parallel to the 10am service in The Lancaster Hall, with children rejoining parents for Communion as attendance at 11.30am.
