The Church’s daily act of prayer is called, “The Daily Office”. Whether said corporately in the Lady Chapel, or said privately at home, the Office is our participation in the Church’s daily praise of God. Different psalms, readings and prayers are appointed for each day and we encourage and train our members to say the office at home or corporately when we meet.

09.30am Parish Eucharist uses Common Worship with our outstanding choir of children and adults leading the sung worship.
Sunday Club & Crèche meets every week during term. Children arrive with their parents and leave during the service to their activities and then rejoin the congregation at the Lord’s Prayer.
Family Service On the first Sunday of each month our Parish Eucharist is replaced with a more informal Family Service or Parade Service (with the Scout and Guide groups), which is ideal for families with younger children.
