9.00 a.m. Service
Every Sunday there is a service of Holy Communion in our small chapel. Using the Book of Common Prayer, this is a quiet, reflective act of worship in traditional language. There is no music or hymns but a short sermon is given. Usually the service lasts about 40 minutes.
10.30 a.m. Service
This is the main service on a Sunday and takes place in the main body of the Church. On the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sunday of the month there is a Holy Communion service; on the 2nd Sunday, a Family & Parade service; and on the 4th Sunday we have Morning Prayer. From time to time we hold a Cafe Church, a service with Laying on of Hands, or alternatives - see the Calendar for details.
Holy Communion uses modern language as per the Church of England’s Common Worship. Music and hymns are led by organ and choir. There is always a sermon relating to the day’s Bible reading.
Children are always welcome at our services. Parents may find it helpful that activity bags and boxes, provided by Mothers' Union, are available with toys, paper & crayons and books. Please help yourself from the back of church or ask a sidesperson for help.
The Family and Parade service is a relatively informal, child friendly, worship time. Uniformed organisations are usually present, along with other children and their parents. Traditional hymns are led by the organ and choir. Our worship group with keyboard and guitar lead modern Christian worship songs.
Morning Prayer uses the modern language of Common Worship. Music and hymns are led by the organ and choir. There is always a sermon relating to the day’s Bible reading.
Young People's Fellowship meets in the Hall or sometimes at St John with St Mark's, usually on 4th Sunday. Come along - you will be very welcome.
In addition to the above regular services there are special services throughout the year – Harvest Festival, Remembrance Sunday, Carol Service, etc. Please have a look at our calendar of events for details.
Our thanks to the children of St John with St Mark's School who painted these wooden crosses for us.
