Service Guide

8.30 am Holy Communion BCP

This is a simple quiet service including the taking of communion and following the liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer. It lasts for about half an hour.

10.30 am Refreshments, followed by Parish Eucharist at 11.00am

This service includes hymns, bible readings, the gospel, a sermon and the taking of communion. It is most suitable for older children and adults. The service lasts for about an hour and is preceded by coffee and biscuits at 10.30am. Older children are encouraged to actively participate in the service.

Sunday club takes place during this service. The younger children leave the service after the welcome and return for to receive a blessing during communion.

This service is aimed at families with young children but all ages are welcome. It is a short service lasting about 40 minutes. It aims to start our youngsters on their Christian journey and is very much focussed on actively involving them in the teaching. Refreshments are served beforehand from 4.30 pm.

“All that I am, Lord, I place in your hands”
Celtic Morning Prayer at All Saints’ Church, lead by one of our readers, is a contemplative, peaceful and informal Service. After enjoying freshly brewed coffee and biscuits at 10.30am, we begin our Worship at 11.00am.

We use an Order of Service introduced to All Saints’ by Lois Plows, and created by the Iona community. Celtic Morning Prayer reflects the simplified, pared back worship of the Early Christians in Britain.

Celtic thought sees life as a journey, and believes that certain places are significant, where God seems closer to us, places that encourage prayer. For this reason, Celtic Morning Prayer takes place in the Chancel of All Saints’ Church. The service inspires a sense of inclusiveness and community, both important tenets of the Early Christians.

Celtic Morning Worship offers a short Reflection, rather than a traditional Sermon, followed by a chance to sit quietly for a few moments to think and pray.
