BCP Evening Prayer
BCP Holy Communion (2nd Sundays)
Service of Wholeness & Healing (4th Sundays in January and July)
The Church is open for private prayer until 4pm
An informal family friendly service. A time of prayer and worship for all ages, during which we gather at the Lord's Table for a simple Communion. We really don't mind if kids are noisy. Come along and join in!
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.
'First Fridays': On the first Friday of each month we gather at the Vicarage (7.30pm) for pizza, a glass (or two) of wine, Bible study, prayer and a simple Communion. You can simply turn up, but a phonecall or email helps us to plan the catering.
Lent 2020 - Pointing to and reflecting Jesus together!
With Ash Wednesday fast approaching (26th February), it is time to plan for Lent. This year, in collaboration with neighbouring parishes, we are planning the following:
Hebrews... it's all about Jesus at the Victoria Walshaw, 10-11am Saturday mornings, 29th Feb to 4th April. An informal and relaxed Lent Course.
Lent Night Prayer at Christ Church Ainsworth 7.30pm Tuesday evenings, 3rd to 31st March (plus Monday to Wednesday of Holy week). A time for reflection and prayer.
Lent Lunch at St Andrew's Radcliffe, 12-1pm Wednesdays 4th March to 8th April for soup, bread and a walk through the passion story. (£1 donation towards lunch optional.)
