This lovely service is held in the Lady Chapel every Sunday and lasts half an hour or so and is taken from Order One of Common Worship.  

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.

After the service we enjoy a time of fellowship over tea and coffee in our Centenary room.

Thy Kingdom Come

Thank you to everyone who attended last year’s Ascension Day service held at St Stephen’s and the Pentecost service held at All Saints. It was wonderful to share with Christians from other churches in praying together for our locality and the world.

Let us continue to pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come!’
