Life at Church

What’s On

 
Sun 28 Nov 2021 10:00am
A less formal, more modern service for all ages. There is no Holy Communion (sharing of the bread and wine) in this. The Community Youth Choir will sing at this service. There is a theme that relates to daily family life. The words we use are up to date and the music is a variety of modern worship songs (reflective as well as lively) and traditional hymns. Sometimes there will be talks, videos, visual aids or guided discussions, all based around exploring faith as a family (and when we say 'family' - that means God's family as well as all human families, so no need for anyone to feel left out!).
Sun 28 Nov 2021 11:30am
Held after the 10am service at about 11.30am in the Lady Chapel. This lasts about 15 minutes and is for anyone who would like to stay for Communion after the earlier Service.
