Regular Services

 

Sunday 8.00am

 

A quiet, said Service of Holy Communion based on the traditional language and format of the Book of Common Prayer.

 

Sunday 10.00am

 

The Sunday family Eucharist (Holy Communion). A Service with music, hymns and sung responses within the worship and prayers. The Service is based on the modern language Common Worship, Order 1.

On the first & third Sundays of the month the music is normally led by our Music Group and second & fourth Sundays are usually organ and robed choir.   

 

The first Sunday may have a particular emphasis on children.

At the moment there are no  regular, Church led, activities for children during the Service, although this may happen if children are present and would like to, or on particular occasions.  Play items are available in the choir vestry and parents may take children there once the Service has started and the choir have left, if they feel the need.

 

The Service usually lasts a little over 1 hour and there are refreshments and time for a chat in the  Church Hall afterwards.

 

St Johns has adopted the practice of admitting children to Communion before Confirmation.

 

 

Sunday 6.00pm

 

Normally a short (30 mins), said, modern language form of Evening Prayer held in the Chancel.

Occasionally, (about every 2 months) this Service is used as a Memorial Service to which recently bereaved families are invited.   

 

 

Thursday 9.30am

 

A mid week Communion, said, and in modern language.

The Service lasts around 35 mins and there are refreshments in the Hall afterwards.
