Evening Worship Programme

Sunday afternoons and evenings have been when we’ve introduced a variety of worship services and styles to suit different people.

From ultra-traditional and reflective, to the latest in music and thinking, we hope that there’s something for everyone in the following pattern of services.

—————————————————————–

Our evening services follow the following pattern:
1st Sunday, 6.30pm: Taizé Worship at St Martin’s
2nd Sunday, 4pm: Play Church at St. Martin’s
3rd Sunday, 6.30pm: Reflections at St Andrew’s
4th Sunday, 6.30pm: Book of Common Prayer Evensong at St Chad’s
5th Sunday, 6.30pm: Service of Healing and Wholeness

—————————————————————–

Taizé Worship
Follows the reflective and musical traditions of the Taizé Community in Burgundy, Southern France.  The gentle and reflective contemporary chants in this half hour service give a peaceful opportunity for prayer.  Held in St Martin’s on the first Sunday of every month.

Play Church
A service for the very youngest, and young at heart. Songs, stories, craft and prayer, aimed at children from birth upwards. 4pm on the 2nd Sunday of the month at St. Martin’s.

The “Reflections Service”
Provides a fresh take on big themes using multi-media and multi-sensory ideas to get you to think and inspire fresh prayer. Third Sunday of every month at St Andrew’s.

St Chad’s
A traditional church building and a traditional form of Evening Prayer from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer is at St. Chad’s on the fourth Sunday of the month.  This is a type of service that would be familiar to churchgoers from any time in the past five centuries of church, and contains rich and beautiful language and music.

Four times a year there is a fifth Sunday
Each month this happens there will be a service of Wholeness and Healing in a different church each time.
