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