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.
There will be no Lent Devotional on 24th March as we have a PCC meeting.
