Services

Everyone is welcome at all our services.

You may well find that one service better fits your way of meeting with God, best enables you to pray, worship or reflect, or best caters to the needs of your family. These are our regular Sunday services:

8.00am Book of Common Prayer Communion Service

The oldest and most ‘traditional’ of our services using the liturgy of the Church which has been in use since 1662. A quiet, reflective service lasting around 40 minutes.

9.15am All Age Eucharist at St Mark’s on the first Sunday of the month

This service combines the best of tradition with accessibility even for people who’ve never been to church before. The sermon is targeted at all ages, and children are usually involved as part of it. This lasts an hour.

On the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month – 9.15am family worship

This service is aimed at young children (and their parents!), nurturing their spirituality with fun and simple actions to get them to think about God. Everyone stays together for the service. It contains two hymns, an action song, a Bible story (often acted out) and a time of prayer. It lasts 30 to 40 minutes and is a ssh-free zone, where you do not have to worry if your child is misbehaving: one of the clergy’s children will probably be doing something worse.

11am Choral Eucharist with Sunday Club

This is grown-up church, that takes place every Sunday (apart from the first Sunday of the month). At the start of the service, children aged 3-9 are invited to go out to Sunday Club, returning in time for the Eucharist. There is a great choir, hymns, a sermon, prayers and the Eucharist. People generally hang around and enjoy tea and coffee together afterwards.

All the details of our upcoming services can be found in the service calendar.
