Weekly & Regular Services
We have a wide range of services on Sundays, from the more reflective and traditional, to informal All Age Café style gatherings. In our first and third Sunday Communion services, held at 10.30am, children and adults worship together for the first part of the service before the children go to their own activity groups later returning to join their parents for a blessing or communion. All of our 10.30 services are followed by refreshments at the back of church, except for Breakfast Church where we have breakfast beforehand.
