Our Menu of Services

Worship Through the Week

Our pattern of services varies, although the Sunday times remain constant:
8.30am, 11am and 6pm

We also have a monthly child-centred service, Family@Church, which takes place at 9.30am on the First Sunday of the Month.

You will find that there are always new people and visitors on a Sunday, so you need not worry about feeling out of place: we are very used to welcoming people easily and without stress.


Holy Communion (Traditional Language) at 8.30am
This service is a quiet celebration of Holy Communion with a sermon following the order in the Book of Common Prayer of 1662. The language may be old, but many find the traditional words a springboard to prayer. The service lasts about 40 minutes, and there are a friendly bunch of about 20-25 people, some of whom adjourn for coffee in Battersea Square afterwards, and love to welcome new people to their number.

Family@Church at 9.30am (First Sunday of the Month Only)

We started this service in 2020 to offer a chance for families with younger children to gather and worship in a more interactive way – where children can be completely themselves – and in a shorter, more informal setting. Contact: [email protected] to find out more – we welcome the involvement of everyone in this creative service!

Parish Eucharist (Modern Language) with St Mary’s Choir at 11am
This is our main service on a Sunday, and attracts up to 100 adults and 30 children. We use the Common Worship order of service and during our worship we have Godly Play for children. The choir usually sing at least one anthem and there is a good, relevant sermon. We regularly welcome families bringing children to baptism to this service. The service lasts about 70-75 minutes (a little bit longer when there is a baptism) and there is tea, coffee and a very friendly buzz at the back of the church or outside afterwards.

Choral Evensong at 6pm (2nd & 4th Sundays of each month)
St Mary’s Choir sings Choral Evensong on the second and fourth Sundays of each month (check the diary to confirm). On these occasions, Choral Evensong includes sung psalms, canticles and an anthem. We often find that this service attracts people who want a quiet hour before beginning the working week or who have returned from a weekend away.

Other Special Sunday Services                                                                                                                          There are also other occasional Sunday evening services. Check the notices or weekly newsletter to find out when these are taking place.
