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
