10:00 am Parish Communion: a sung service in contemporary language, taken from Common Worship (2000). The service lasts about 60-70 minutes and is followed by coffee at the back of church. Children are very welcome to this service. During term-time, they leave the service during the first hymn for their own worship and activities in the Old School Room before rejoining the main service at the Communion. There are also toys and books both in the children’s corner and in activity bags at the back of Church. Once each half-term, the 10am service is an all-age Family Communion, planned with children in mind and lasting about 50 minutes. See the Children and young people’s page for more details.

12:00 noon Holy Communion (1662): a service in traditional language, taken from the Book of Common Prayer (1662). The service lasts 40 minutes and includes a short sermon, but no hymns.

Healing services

Icon of Christ’s head

At the 7.00pm Holy Communion on the first Wednesday of each month, the priest invites anyone who wishes, to kneel at the altar rail to pray for healing either for themselves or for someone close to them. The priest places her/his hands upon each person’s head and says:

Healing, we believe, can take many forms, perhaps, most commonly, renewed strength in the face of physical or emotional difficulties, perhaps guidance and new perspectives, or perhaps the gradual acceptance of new circumstances. All come through the love and grace of God alone.

In the name of God and trusting in his might alone, receive Christ’s healing touch to make you (and all whom you have prayed for) whole. May Christ bring you wholeness of body, mind and spirit, deliver you from evil, and give you his peace. Amen.
