Church Services

Note that due to the Covid-19 pandemic some services can be attended in person, some will be live streamed, and some you can join in on Zoom.

Attending a Service In Person

Attendance in person at services needs to be booked in advance so that we can manage the requirements for social distancing and ‘track and trace’. We only have room for 15 households. To book, please contact:

  • Lerys Campbell

    01252 935120
  • Rachel Hartland

    0771 794 2669

Face Masks

If you are attending a service in person, you must wear a mask at all times to protect others. This is on top of the 2-metre social distancing guidance. The only exception to this is those leading services or those who have a medical condition. There is further advice for Holy Communion which you will be given at the service.

Service Times

For the date and times of forthcoming services, see Service Times.

Sunday 11:00am: Holy Communion

Held on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th Sunday in the month
This service offers communion and is a mix of traditional and less traditional styles. The words are from Common Worship and much of the music is from Common Praise with more modern songs supplementing these. The vast majority of music is played on the organ with the piano being used where appropriate. Searchers (our junior church) is offered at this service and Baptisms will sometimes take place.

There is always an opportunity to stay for tea and a chat after the 11:00am service.

Messy Church is for the whole family to enjoy (children must be accompanied by an adult). It's fun and includes craft, food, songs and bible stories.

All the above services are held at St Mary's Church.
