BCP: Book of Common Prayer
CW: Common Worship
Sundays and Wednesdays
Our services span a broad range of styles but at the heart of our worship is the Eucharist (Holy Communion), which we celebrate every Sunday at 8AM and 10.30AM, and on Wednesdays at noon. Our main Sunday service is supported by St Mary's choir and follows Common Worship. Our early morning services normally follow the traditional text of the Book of Common Prayer.
3rd Sunday of the month
Choral Evensong is perhaps the most beloved of all Church of England services. We celebrate Choral Evensong once a month, led by our choir. It's usually the third Sunday of the month, but please check our service schedule before making a special journey. We are also members of the Prayer Book Society: the PBS supports churches that include traditional services in their worship.
We run services for the whole family, including young children to introduce church to our youngest congregation members. Our Family Eucharist is once a month: it is popular with all ages and is led by the St Mary's music group with the choir. We also run a Family First Steps service- an ideal introduction to church for the whole family. It is just 20 minutes long but is still a "proper" service, with prayers, a story and simple, favourite hymns. If you're interested in learning more about either of these, please contact Father James or the Parish Office.
