Sunday services:

  • 8.00am Said Eucharist
    A quiet, said celebration of the Eucharist in traditional language. This service has no hymns and lasts around 30 minutes
  • 10.30am Parish Eucharist (also known as the Mass, or Holy Communion)
    Our main weekly act of worship where we gather as a community to hear God’s word and worship together. This service includes hymns, organ and choir, and lasts for just over an hour. Refreshments are served afterwards. Treasure Seekers (our Sunday School) meet in the Billie and Leslie Norman Rooms from 10.15am and join us in church later in the service.
  • 10.30am Family Eucharist (Third Sunday of every month)
    This is a more relaxed Sunday service intended for people of all ages. Younger members of the community are more involved in this service, which lasts for around an hour and is followed by refreshments.


Every Wednesday morning at 9.30am we meet in church for a quiet celebration of the Eucharist to hear God’s word, pray for our community, and to break bread together. This service lasts for around 30 minutes and is followed by refreshments and bible study in the Billie and Leslie Norman Rooms.

  • Morning and Evening Prayer happen regularly in church, check the diary for details.
  • On major Christian Feasts there is often an evening Eucharist.
