What can you expect from services?

Parish Communion

This service is common in form with most other Church of England as well as other denominations. It normally starts at 09:30 and has four hymns, a sermon, readings and communion.

United Benefice Service

Once a month, we meet as a benefice. From 0930 to around 1030 we have a service that follows the same form as parish communion. Depending upon the facilities at the particular church, we then have after the service coffee and fresh cakes / biscuits.


This is a lovely sung evensong service.
