Holy Communion or Eucharist is a traditional act of Christian worship that helps us to consider the heart of the Christian faith (Eucharist means thanksgiving). Using traditional words (liturgy) we participate in long established rhythms of prayer and worship. Our choir leads some of the singing together with psalms, bible readings, a short talk and prayers for the world and those in need.
Cafe Sunday is a gathering for the whole family, featuring great coffee and great conversation. A relaxed hour where you can meet new people and make genuine relationships, we serve pastries and cakes alongside a baby area, kids crafts and the Sunday papers. There’s a short talk and a few songs, but you are free to opt out and enjoy the Cafe atmosphere in our lounge. Come and meet us. Read More.
Once a month we gather as the wider church family to celebrate the diversity among us. Starting at 10am we welcome families of all ages to sing a few songs, listen to a short talk and enjoy the presence of God. Our local uniformed organisations join us and we encourage everyone to be themselves! Our toddlers have an area at the front to play and there are refreshments afterwards to enjoy.
First Sunday blends modern worship with a reflective atmosphere in the chapel of St Nick’s church. We’re exploring an adventure in faith that is attracting young people, the older members of our community and everyone in between. First Sunday includes singing, a short talk and a chance to respond through creative activities. There’s always great coffee, cake and cookies from 6.20pm, with the event starting at 6.45pm. Explore a new way to worship.
If you prefer a different style of service – more reflective and traditional – we welcome you to our evening service. At 6.30 on the 2nd and 4th Sundays we follow the traditional service of Evensong from the Book of Common Prayer led by our choir. On the 3rd Sunday it is a themed worship service that uses different ways to encounter God as we explore a theme of faith together.
St Barnabas is the sister church in the Parish and provides a smaller intimate worshipping community, ideal for those looking for a spiritual home where everyone knows everyone and looks out for each other. They meet every Sunday for worship at 11am. Every Tuesday at 11am and on the first Sunday of the month you can join them for a shared lunch after the morning service.
