Sunday 30th September Harvest Festival

9.30am Sung Eucharist

We will welcome again the Scouts for their Church Parade.

We will be supporting the Watford Foodbank with a collection of tinned and dried goods. The collection is in aid of the Bishop’s Harvest Appeal.

Our main service at 9.30am each Sunday morning is a Sung Eucharist taken from Common Worship. We have a tradition of healing ministry through prayer and laying on of hands & anointing takes place roughly bi-monthly.

Our All Age Eucharist is held at 9.30am on on the 3rd Sunday of each month. This is an inclusive act of worship centred around Holy Communion.

Holy Communion is the first service on Sunday and is said at 8am. Once a month we use the Book of Common Prayer for this quiet act of worship.

The Lady Chapel may be used as a focus for prayer.

There are candles to light and a board for requests, or email prayer requests to


Please pray this week for:


Watford Deanery - St Matthew’s Oxhey & All Saints, South Oxhey


In our Community - The Pathway & Pinner Road


Those in special need of our thoughts and prayers -

Especially Judith, Sandy, Jonathan & Richard


The Departed - We remember all those who have died recently, and those whose years mind falls at this time, including Flora Tabor, Roger Greenstreet, Dorothy Ridout and Win Skinner.
