Our All Age Communion service is on the first Sunday of the month.
This shorter service is designed with children and young people in mind, so they stay with their families rather than go to Children’s Church. Despite this, or maybe because of this, many adults say it is their favourite service out of all the services we do!
Our older children take part in the service, reading and leading the prayers, there is an all age talk rather than a sermon.
Our Parish Communion with Children’s Church takes place on the second, fourth & fifth Sunday of the month.
On the third Sunday of the month, we hold a 9am Holy Communion and a 10am Sacred Space Service with Children’s Church.
The 9am Holy Communion is a quiet service held in the high altar chapel with a short reflection and no hymns.
The 10am service explores and celebrates a particular theme or aspect of Christian faith. It is prepared by a planning team who use material from a wide range of sources including Iona, Taize and Inclusive Church writers. The structure of the service is variable; there is usually a contemporary reading or poem as well as a Bible reading, sometimes a time of discussion, often a multi-sensory action or reflection. Topics include ethical concerns like a Christian response to environmental issues or Christian doctrines like the Trinity.
