Church services​

We meet on Sundays at 11am. Everyone is welcome to join us.

The first & 3rd Sundays

Of each month are generally informal Holy Communions. These aim to be friendly services of worship, with a mix of old and new music, including an opportunity for prayer ministry after the service. Kid’s connect is usually on a 3rd Sunday. The communion service follows modern liturgy.*

2nd Sunday

The service on the Second Sunday of the month is usually a lay led service of either morning prayer or informal worship.*

4th Sunday

The service on the 4th Sunday aims to be an informal service, usually a New Wine style service with modern worship led by a group of musicians.

5th Sundays

5th Sundays are Benefice services. These move around The Pilgrim Parishes.

*Children are very welcome at all our services and there is an area with sofas, toys and books which families are always welcome to use. Kid’s connect (KC) with organized children’s work during the service is usually the third Sunday.

If you are interested in being baptised or having your child baptised, we recommend that you come along to one of our services so that you can see what our services are like, if you wish to book a baptism, please contact our church administrator and one of our priests will contact you.

Our baptisms usually take place within a main Sunday service. Our priest in charge Sue Hurley will be able to tell you when baptisms might take place.
