At St. Mary’s we have a number of services which run every Sunday. You are welcome to any or all of them!
8am On the fourth Sunday of the month we hold an 8am Communion service – this is a said service and based on the traditional Prayer Book. This is a quiet service with time to contemplate and celebrate the Lord’s Supper. The service lasts around 50 minutes.
9.30am The 9:30am service is our main morning service. It is relatively contemporary in character, led by a music group with a range of traditional and contemporary music. It is well attended by all age-groups and a creche and/or sound-proof room is available should your little ones become too fractious!
Children are included at the beginning of the service, before leaving for their own activities in the Upper Room nearby. There is always plenty of supervision and someone will be only too pleased to show you where to take children – or take them for you.
Once a month, the service also includes Communion, and there are regular ‘All Age’ services, when young people’s work is not on. This is the service in which we usually hold Baptisms and Thanksgivings.
After the 9:30am service, refreshments are normally served in the church before the 11:15am service begins. This is a great time to catch up with people or get to know new ones – the tea and coffee is good too!
11.15am The 11:15am service is generally more traditional in character, with a choir helping lead, and fewer children, although we are always happy to see familes at this service too. Once a month, there is a celebration of the Lord’s Supper. The previous week is also based upon the Prayer Book service with sung psalms.
6.30pm At 6:30pm, a more contemporary informal service is a great opportunity to sing, pray and learn from God’s word. Our 11-14yrs youth group ‘Inters’ join in the start of this service, before their activities in the Upper Room (the 14-18’s meet after this service). The service is normally finished by 8pm. Communion is also included in this service once a month.
You are welcome to come along and join in!
