Worship

First Sunday of every month:

8am Holy Communion

This is a quiet reflective ‘said’ service (no music or hymns) that uses Common Worship (modern liturgy). The service is Holy Communion where we confess our sins, receive God’s forgiveness, hear Readings from the Bible, listen to a sermon, and gather around the Lord’s Table to receive bread and wine in memory of the sacrifice and death of Jesus, for our sins and those of the world. This service is more suited to adults and lasts about 45 minutes.

10am Morning Praise

This is a shorter service that uses Common Worship (modern liturgy).  It is known as a Service of The Word where we say sorry to God and receive his forgiveness, hear readings from the Bible, listen to a short reflection, and sing songs and hymns.  This service is more informal and suitable for all ages and lasts about 40 minutes.

4Pm 'The Ark'

This is a contemporary, more informal act of worship.  We sing modern worship songs, have a bible reading followed by a short reflection, pray and have conversations about life and faith.  We enjoy refreshments and fellowship after the service, and often there is an activity for the kids. The service lasts about 40 minutes and is suitable for all ages.

6:30pm Holy Communion & Prayer for Healing

This is a quiet reflective ‘said’ service (no music or hymns) that uses Common Worship (modern liturgy). The service is Holy Communion where we confess our sins, receive God’s forgiveness, hear readings from the Bible, listen to a sermon, and gather around the Lord’s Table to receive bread and wine in memory of the sacrifice and death of Jesus, for our sins and those of the world. At the end of the service there is the opportunity to receive prayer for healing with the laying on of hands. Anointing with oil on the forehead is also offered (prayers for healing and anointing are optional). This service is more suited to adults and lasts about 45 minutes when those not wishing to stay for prayer and anointing are free to leave.


Every third Sunday of the month:

6:30pm Night Prayer

This is a quiet candlelit service including prayer, bible readings and reflective music. We use Common Worship (modern liturgy).  This service is ideal as a peaceful conclusion to the day.  We sometimes have tasty alternative refreshments afterwards. The service lasts about 30 minutes.
