Our Services

Our services are rotated between the two churches over the year. On each Sunday Holy Communion is celebrated in one of the churches and the Family Service, Matins or Compline is held in the other church. A warm welcome is offered to visitors and regular worshippers; after our main services coffee is served for social time together. We aim to provide a variety of services for as many 'tastes' as possible.

Our clergy usually wear cassock and surplice and we have a robed choir for the main services. This tradition is happily continued and robes are worn with dignity. In each month we offer a variety of services ranging from the very popular Family Service to the very traditional Service of Matins. We hold Eucharist at the main service twice a month and a said Eucharist at 8.00am on the alternate Sundays.

The regular service pattern is:

  • 1st Sunday 8.00am Holy Communion (BCP); 10,00am Familly Service
  • 2nd Sunday 10.00am Sung Eucharist; 6.00pm Compline
  • 3rd Sunday 8.00am Holy Communion;
    10.00am New Morning Service
  • 4th Sunday 10.00am Sung Eucharist; 6.00pm Compline
  • 5th Sunday 8.00am Holy Communion; 10.00am Matins

Morning Prayer takes place every weekday (Monday to Friday) at 8am at St, Mary's. Evening Prayer takes place every weekday evening at St. Luke's, at 5pm.

Eucharist takes place every Tuesday at 9.30am at St. Mary's and Thursdays at 6.30pm at St. Luke's.
