We have a variety of services at our church which are all rooted in the traditions of the Church of England and of the worldwide church stretching back for centuries. All our services are designed to be accessible to newcomers who are always made to feel welcome at our church.
On Sundays we have services at 8am, 10am and 6.30pm.
On Wednesdays we have a simple spoken service of Holy Communion using the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer complied in 1662. This service is followed by a simple meal of soup and a roll. Although there is no obligation to stay for that you would be very welcome.
The 8am service is a simple spoken service of Holy Communion using traditional language but following a modern worship structure. There is a short sermon of about 2-3 minutes.
The 10am service is our main service. It is a service of Holy Communion with hymns, organ and a choir. It usually lasts a little over an hour.
At 6.30pm we have an additional service which is usually quieter and more meditative but still has some music. These services vary according to which Sunday of the month it is, as follows:
- On the 1st Sunday of the month we have a service based on the chants developed by the monastic community of Taize in France.
- On the 2nd Sunday of the month we have an online evening service on Zoom where people can join us from home.
- On the 3rd Sunday of the month we have a sung evensong in our church or at a different church.
- On the 4th Sunday of the month we have another online evening service on Zoom where people can join us from home.
- If there is a 5th Sunday we have a Taize service at St Catherine's Church, Birtles.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the link to the Zoom services.
Although this is our standard pattern, we usually have something special each month so please check the calendar.
