Morning Service

This is a service without communion. It lasts about 45 minutes and has hymns, Bible readings, a sermon (which lasts about 10 minutes) and prayers. Everything is set out in a service booklet so you’ll know when to stand or sit; when to listen and when to join in.

Our hymns are a mixture of modern and traditional, using hymn books and projected words.

During the last hymn there’s a collection and you’re free to give as much or as little as you like. Some people have a direct debit set up.

As with all our services, everyone, whatever their age, is very welcome; it’s quite relaxed and no-one will put any pressure on you to do or say anything.

We remember Jesus’ last meal by sharing bread and wine. The booklet and the priest explain what to do as we go along. If you’re confirmed, or you take communion in another church or denomination, then you’re very welcome to take communion with us. But if you can’t, or don’t want to, you’re still very welcome to come up to the alter rail for a blessing. Children are very welcome to come up for a blessing too. The whole service lasts about an hour.

All-Age Service

This informal service is aimed at all ages. The hymns tend to be more modern, and may be familiar to some from school. Like all our services, there’s an an opportunity to stay afterwards, have a chat, and refreshments. (Oh, and no-one will mind if children or babies get restless during the service – we kind of expect that!)

Joint Benefice Service

The congregations from all three churches get together with our fellow Christians from Witnesham Baptist Church and we have a joint service. It’s on the 5th Sunday of the month – so that means we only do it four times a year. And we rotate around all four churches. Check the Calendar for the time.
