Here’s some information about what each type of service is:


Holy Communion/Parish Communion

These mean the same thing.  Communion is the service where we take bread and wine to remember Christ’s sacrifice in dying for us.

United Benefice Communion

This is a Communion service, as above, but one where all three churches join to worship together. 

Evening Praise

This is our most informal service.  We use mainly modern worship songs, accompanied by different instruments where possible.  We make use of visual screens.  We often include physical activities, such as lighting a candle in remembrance of someone or something, or using a stone to think about what weighs us down.
