SUNDAY SERVICES

08.00         Holy Communion (BCP)

This is a short service without hymns.  We use the liturgy from The Book of Common Prayer.  On third Sundays the service is followed by coffee and a chance to meet other members of the congregation.

10.30         Family Service – 1st Sunday of the month

Our family services are often lively, fun and have good messages for all the family (sometimes using puppets) .  The music comes from a wide range of traditions and involves our music group and junior choir.  Over the past year we have had a football themed service, teddy bear service and an out door pet service.  The service is about 45 mins and is followed by refreshments.

10.30         Parish Communion – 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays in the month

We pride ourselves in offering a great mix of traditional and contemporary worship.  Our main 10.30am service of holy communion sometimes includes a robed choir, our new organ, piano and music group.  We are blessed to have 5 different preachers who make sermons relevant and tackle the important subjects of the day and what the bible has to say to help us in everyday life.

 

WEDNESDAY SERVICE

10.00        Holy Communion

On Wednesday mornings we meet in our side chapel for a short service of Holy Communion.  We gather in a semi-circle around a nave altar.  The minster leading the service will give a short reflection.  Coffee is served in our choir vestry after the service.

SATURDAY SERVICE  

08.45         Morning Prayer

We meet in the church on Saturday mornings for morning prayer using Common Worship Daily Prayer.  It’s a simple service which includes a psalm, two bible readings and prayers for anything on our hearts.  The service lasts about 20 minutes.

ST MARTIN’S COMMUNITY HALL

09.00        Holy Communion – 2nd and 4th Sundays

There has been a worshiping community at the Community Hall on Forrest Road for a number of years.  We meet twice a month for a traditional communion service with hymns and sermon.  There is great coffee afterwards in our lovely hall.
