Holy Communion




Home Communion


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.


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 Evensong to complete the day. The monthly 6.30pm Communion service is also BCP.


The Wednesday morning communion service is informal and takes place in a congregation member's home. Details of the location are available from Revd Dave Thomson, 01204 398567 or






Forthcoming Special Services


Date Service


9th November


Remembrance Sunday

During the service at 11.00am we will place poppy wreaths against the Lord's Table and stand for two minutes silence to remember the sacrifices made and those who died from past and present generations in times of war and conflict.

'At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.'


Commemoration of the Departed

during which the names of our departed loved ones will be read out and we will light candles to remember them before God.

All are welcome to attend no matter how long ago your loved one died.

'Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.' Matthew 5.4
