Service Times & Worship

St Mary’s is Open for Public Worship Again

All acts of worship are live-streamed to

Please note that, until the autumn, there will be no Sunday evening acts of worship.

Sunday Worship

8.30am Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer)

This quiet service is attended by those who like to worship using the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and for those who might have other commitments on a Sunday. There is a sermon, usually a shortened version of the one preached at the main service. The service lasts about 40 minutes.

11am Parish Eucharist

Most people worship at this Communion Service, which is supported by activities for children using the Godly Play programme. The service is ‘informally formal’ in its style, and uses modern language. Although we are not yet able to welcome back St Mary’s excellent Church Choir, we are singing quiet hymns and listening to solo sung and instrumental music. There’s always a biblical, relevant sermon and refreshments are served after the service. The service lasts about an hour.
