We start Sunday’s with Morning Prayer at 8.30am in Trinity Chapel.
Our main service each week is Sung Parish Eucharist on a Sunday at 9.30 a.m.
The style of our worship is both is tradition and relaxed. We have a strong focus on spiritually and thoughtful sermons. We also take pride in our welcoming Sunday School. The Sunday School community spend part of the service in the main church, while with drawing for their own program for part of the service.
We also offer a Zoom Service of the day at 5pm each Sunday; and there is a Thought for the Day on our Facebook page each Sunday.
The liturgy involves a significant number of lay people being involved on a rota basis week by week for welcoming, reading, leading intercessions, offertory procession, helping in the sanctuary and leading our children’s program. Our music, led by Peter Walter, does much to help lift our hearts to God and offer our praise. Our Vicar preaches reflectively on the readings of the day in relation to growth in faith within the issues of the day.
On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday we have Morning Prayer in Trinity Chapel at 8.30 a.m. Morning Prayer is a short service of psalms, readings and intercessions to start the day.
Monday Christian Contemplation
The Christian contemplative tradition is as old as the faith itself. Many Gospel stories tell of Jesus removing Himself from the crowds and going to pray to His Father. In St Matthew’s Gospel Jesus gives us the instruction to “go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father who is hidden.” Contemplative Prayer is the opening of mind and heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions, whom we know by faith is within us, closer than breathing, thinking, feeling and choosing, even closer than consciousness itself.
Starting Monday 11th October 2020 we will host an hour of contemplation from 2-3pm. (with optional sharing time from 3-3.30pm). Initially this group will begin on Zoom, with the expectation that it will move into the church later in the year. While doing it at home you may want to locate yourself in a quiet space, or one which is not full of distractions for you. The hour will have much silence but also invites us to reflect, or draw to close to God using readings from the bible, and traditional prayers. At the end of the time you may like to share your experience or slip away quietly. There is no experience necessary to participate—just willingness to sit with God.
Each Wednesday there is a faith neutral meditation between 10-11 a.m. in the main church.
All weekday services are followed by tea or coffee for those who have time to stay for a chat.
