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.
Our “What Am I Doing Here” Caritas series returns in Autumn. Members of the congregation talk at Caritas about life, faith and church at 6pm. The programme is:
8th Oct James Hughesman
15th Oct Steve Emerson
22nd Oct Natasha Klukach
26th Nov Angela Attah
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 will run Emmaus parallel to the 10am service in The Lancaster Hall, with children rejoining parents for Communion as attendance at 11.30am. Emmaus services has been very small over the last year. We’d love your feedback on which pattern you and your children prefer!
