Services

Below is the regular monthly pattern of worship for our group of churches. There are occasional changes to this pattern.

Click here to see a calendar showing services and other events in all our churches.

At most of our services we use the modern Common Worship format, the exceptions are those marked BCP, which use the traditional Book of Common Prayer. The Family Service at each church is an informal, non-Communion service in modern language which we hope will be helpful to families with young children or people who are new to church attendance.
