Holy Communion 

Sundays @ 8am 

This is a said mass and as there is no music, or choir, this service is suitable for those who wish to encounter God in a more reflective, peaceful environment. You will hear the gospel and readings for the day and you will receive Holy Communion. There will be an opportunity to meet with others in our community.

 

Parish Mass

Sundays @ 10.30am

Our principal Sunday service takes place at 10.30am. Everyone is welcome and please come as you are, there is no dress code!

We have a robed choir, that are at the heart of our worship here at All Saints' they perform a wide reperotire of music.  We welcome families with young children at this service and our monthly Childrens Church service. We are pleased to provide Sunday School and a creche during term time, please see a Sidesperson when you arrive for more information. 

This Mass follows the Church of England Common Worship Liturgy, you will sing hymns, hear readings, exchange the peace and receive Holy Communion. The order is set out in a booklet.

We follow the liturgical calander of the Church of England so you will see us celebrating Saints' Days and Festivals according to the times and seasons.

At this service you will also see our serving team. Made up of both adults and children they generally serve at our Parish Mass and other special services, if you are interested in joining the team or finding out more about what we do, speak to Caroline Williams or Father Nicholas. 

The Church of England welcomes all the baptised who are communicant members of their own churches to make their communion if they wish. Others, and all who are not Christian, are welcome to attend but are asked to refrain from receiving the sacraments.

Regular training is offered for those seeking to become Christian and to profess their faith at Baptism. There are prayer and bible study groups as well as children's church.

Here we meet God in the Evening Office for a Sunday, this service is prayer focussed, giving us the opportunity to listen and reflect.  It follows an aicent practive of offering thanks for the day that is passinf and searhing for God's forgiveness before we sleep. 

 

Choral Evensong 

Every third Sunday @ 6.30pm 

This is a chance to hear our magnificent choir in action. Choral Evensong is an hour long peace-inducing service in which the 'song' of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the even point between the active day and a restful night. This, follows the pattern of Evening Prayer, it allows worshippers to gather and offers time for restful contemplation. The service moves from the Old Testament to the revelation of God in the New Covenenat when the Virgin Mary said "Yes" to God's promise.
