From Sunday 26 July to Sunday 6 September we are pleased to announce that we will be experimenting with a Service of the Word (Morning Prayer rather than Holy Communion) in Church. There will be distancing to keep us safe, and we regret that our lavatory will not be available. The service is planned to last about 30 minutes. All are welcome.
Our main Sunday Morning Communion Service is still being held online. The YouTube version is below. It is also available on Zoom at 10.30 am on Sundays: if you are interested in joining us this way, please contact us. We also have weekday Zoom services at 7.30 pm on Tuesdays (Compline/Night Prayer, preceded by a time for chat) and 10.30 am on Wednesdays (Holy Communion). If you would like to join us for these, please email for details.
Our Vicar, Rev. Barry Hingston, celebrates Holy Communion for the Ninth Sunday after Trinity, 9 August 2020.
All our previous on-line Sunday services (from 22 March onwards) are still available on YouTube here.
There is a permanent ramp up to the main church entrance in Station Road, which is suitable for wheelchair users. There are two steps (measuring 6in/15cm each) with handrails each side up to the vestry area, where our lavatory is situated.
We have a sound loop around the worship area of the church, including St Michael’s Chapel.
Our Holy Communion services are generally Common Worship Order 1.
Most clergy and religious communities, and some lay people too, find it is useful to say the “daily offices”, Morning and Evening Prayer, every day. These are simple services with readings that change every day. On the Oremus site (use the “View” tab) there are the complete services of Morning and Evening Prayer, with the readings for the current day (or you can choose another day), with other offices including Night Prayer (sometimes known as Compline), the Holy Communion readings and information about any saint whose day it is. (Oremus is Latin for “let us pray”.)
