Christ Church Ainsworth
Our usual pattern of worship is shown below:
BCP Holy Communion
Family & Parade Service 2nd Sundays
12.00 noon & 1.00pm
Baptisms (except 2nd & last Sundays)
BCP Evening Prayer
BCP Holy Communion (2nd Sundays)
Service of Wholeness & Healing (4th Sundays in January and July)
Messy Church - click here for details
The Church is open for private prayer until 4pm
The best way to describe the style of worship at our main (10.30am) Sunday morning service is family friendly, 'middle-of-the-road' Anglican. We are not stuffy and toys and 'Busy Bags' are available to help keep little ones occupied.
Family & Parade Services are what some might call 'All Age' (strictly speaking all services are 'All Age') and are geared towards our uniformed organisations (Scouts, Guides etc). They are a mixture of the formal (presentation of banners and National Anthem) and child-centred liveliness.
For those who prefer the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer we offer Holy Communion as a quiet start to the day and the timelessness of Evening Prayer to complete the day. The monthly evening Communion service is also BCP.
There will be no Messy Church in March.
