Sunday Services

Sunday services….

Our Sunday services come in two flavours:  At 10.00 am 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.

For those wanting more peace and quiet, Caritas, at 6.00 pm, is a tranquil, reflective service of Holy Communion intended just for adults.

Both services last an hour.

Children’s Services

Rather than a formal sermon and reading format, the children and adult leaders together explore the gospel stories through story-telling, games and activity. At the moment we are experimenting with running  Emmaus at the same time as the Parish Eucharist at 10 am, in the Lancaster Hall. This means the adults can be part of the main service and the children rejoin the adults at the Peace to share communion together.
