8.30 a.m.

Holy Communion (every week in the Memorial Chapel)

A modern-language Communion service, with hymns and 
sermon, and following a printed Order of Service, it is usually finished by 11.45 a.m.

(second Sunday) All Age & Parade Service
All-age worship, ideal for young families and anyone less familiar with Anglican worship, often led by members of Church youth organisations. “Specials” during the year include Mothering Sunday (March/April), Sunday Club Anniversary (following a Procession of Witness) (July), Harvest (October), Remembrance (November), Toy and Gift Service (December). With well-known hymns and an ‘interactive’ short sermon, this is the shortest morning service, finishing no later than 11.30am

10.30 a.m.
Holy Communion (every week)
Similar to Sunday 8.30 a.m., this traditional-language Communion service uses the Book of Common Prayer.

Finishing before 11.15 a.m., it is followed by refreshments in the Hall, to which everyone is warmly invited.
