Church Services

Church Services

We offer different styles of worship ranging from the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) communion service through to Gratitude (a time of informal worship and prayer) and much in-between. All are welcome to all of the services.

Service Times

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

Sunday 8:00am: BCP Communion

Held on the 1st, 3rd, & 5th Sunday in the month
This is a quiet and reflective traditional service which lasts approximately 30 minutes.

Sunday 9:15am: Gratitude

Held on the 1st Sunday in the month
Gratitude is a new service at St Mary's, a time of informal worship and prayer. Breakfast (tea, coffee and croissants) is available after the service.

Sunday 11:00am: Family Service

Held on the 1st Sunday in the month
This is a family orientated service and there are often baptisms taking place. The music is varied to suit both Grandparents and children. Parts of the service such as the reading and the prayers are led by families from our own congregation.

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. The children gather in the hall for Bible stories, music, craft and much more and then return to the church for a blessing (if desired) during communion.

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

Little Lights

Usually held on the 3rd Tuesday in the month starting at 1:15pm
The Little Lights service is for 0-5 year olds and their parents/carers. This is a short, simple service with refreshments served beforehand when new friendships can be made.

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

Services are also held at one other venue in the parish.


Usually held on the 2nd Sunday in the month at Bramshill church starting at 6:30pm
This service takes place in the small wooden church in the woods in Bramshill. It takes the form of a traditional sung Evensong using Common Praise and led by an organ. Refreshments are available afterwards.

Note: there will be no Evensong service at Bramshill in February or March 2018 due to the parking and access difficulties.
