Church Services

Pattern of morning services

The 8am service is a Eucharist service using traditional language. On the third Sunday of each month, we use the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) version. An Order of Service is provided to assist newcomers in following the service. This service is intended for those who prefer a quiet, peaceful and prayerful atmosphere in which to worship.

The 10am service is the main service of the day. It is a Eucharist service, with hymns led normally by the organ and choir. The service is in contempory language following Common Worship. There are Creche (for 0-3 years), Sunday School (for 3-11 years) and Pathfinders (for 12 and over) which meet during the first part of the service. All the children come into Church for the Eucharist. Following the service, refreshments are served in the hall and there is an opportunity for fellowship. This service is intended for people of all ages.

On the 2nd Sunday of each month, the 10am service includes the sacrament of Baptism. We  are pleased to welcome families and friends of those being baptised.
