Sunday 9:30am ‘Sung’ service of Holy Communion
This service is also taken from Order One of Common Worship and includes hymns. Our ‘Junior Church’ meet during this service with the children having their own teaching and learning session which is a lot of fun in our Centenary room. They are welcomed back into church for a blessing and they share with the whole church family what they have been doing in their activity session.
After the service we enjoy a time of fellowship over tea and coffee in our Centenary room.
