Sunday Services

As a church family an important part of our life is getting together on a Sunday for teaching, worship and just spending time together. But, like any family, we do some things differently so there are 4 services on a Sunday each with its own 'expression’ or way of doing things.

Please feel free to come along to any of our services and 'try them out'. Occasionally there are planned changes to service times so do check out the Church Calendar or the Quarterly Service Card for the latest information.
 

Please note during December and the Christmas season we have a variety of service and events and sometimes our 9.45am and 11.15am congregations will be meeting together at 10.30am. Also there may not always be an 8.30am service -please check in advance.
See this page for all the information about our Christmas services, events and activities - we hope to see you there!

 

 

8.30am Traditional Service

 

A quieter and more traditional Anglican service, using the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. There is time to chat over tea and coffee afterwards, and twice a month we remember Jesus’ death with a Holy Communion service.

This congregation is led by our Vicar David Gibb with the help of Jeff Fearnley and Walter Drain. Along with the Pastoral Care Team (Margaret Dixon, Pat Frodsham and Margaret Higham).

   

9.45am Family Service

 

A contemporary family-orientated service with a crèche, groups for children age 4-14 - followed by coffee, biscuits and chatting! Its relaxed, informal and there is no standing on ceremony. Once a month we share the Lord’s Supper together.

This congregation is led by a Leadership Team.

   

11.15am All Age Service

 

People of all ages attend this family-friendly service. There is a blend of older hymns and newer songs, reflecting the style of the service as a whole. There is a crèche, groups for children age 4-14 and tea and coffee served afterwards. Once a month we share the Lord’s Supper together.

This congregation is led by our Vicar David Gibb, with the help of a Leadership Team.(Tim Cotterall, Ken Hyde, Lynn Rhodes, Mike Roberts and Rita Young) and a Pastoral Care Team (headed up by Ruth Quinton)

   

6.30pm Contemporary Service

 

A more informal, relaxed service with contemporary music and a growing number in their 20s-30s, though people of all ages enjoy this service. We enjoy time together over tea and coffee afterwards, with a shared meal once a month that is open to anyone.

This congregation is led by our Vicar David Gibb

   

Can't make it on a Sunday?

 

Why not come along on Friday at 11am, a favourite for some of our older members. We meet every Friday at 11am in the church building just for 30 minutes and work our way through the Litany service in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.

We begin with a reading from the Bible and a short message which encourages us to pray. Then, using the old prayers of the Prayer Book, we pray for the needs of our church, our town, our country, and our world. We keep a file at the back of the church building which contains names of people who need our prayers. We encourage the church to add the names of those who are sick, anxious or struggling, and at the Litany service we pray for each person by name.

Coffee and tea are served afterwards and those who are able stay on for a drink and a chat.
