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.
For those wanting more peace and quiet, Caritas, at 6pm, is a tranquil, reflective service of Holy Communion intended just for adults.
Our Autumn 2018 “What Am I Doing Here” series, where members of the congregation talk at Caritas about life, faith and church, will take place in September – 16th (Revd John Whittaker) and 23rd (Yin-An Chen) and October – 7th (Alexis Chapman) and 14th October (Nikki Cornfield). You can listen again to previous talks HERE
Both services last an hour.
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 parallel to the 10am service in The Lancaster Hall, with children rejoining parents for Communion as attendance at 11.30am.
