In Church

Whilst we remain in a Vacancy our Sunday Services are limited to the following at present:

10 a.m. Parish Eucharist. This will be our core weekly service for the foreseeable future. On the first Sunday of each month, except in January and August, we hold a Cathedral-style Choral Eucharist sung by our Choral Scholars.  This a latin mass or an English communion setting and a motet.

6 p.m. Evensong. Two evensong services are held each month.   These are held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.  We hold termly services of full Choral Evensong sung by our Choral Scholars, on dates advertised on the website and the pewsheet.

Please see the current edition of our Weekly Pew Sheet for the current Covid protocols that might apply to the various services.

The Church is open for visitors from April to October on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from 2 to 4 p.m. If you would like to visit outside these hours please contact the Parish Office.

Copse and Churchyard Working Parties

Why not burn up some excess energy and make some new friends by joining our Copse and Churchyard Working Party which meets four times a year to help maintain and tidy the churchyard and grounds. Working parties take place on a Saturday morning, starting at 9.30am and last as long as people feel able to stay! Coffee, juice and biscuits are provided.

Dates for this year's working parties are shown on the Events Calendar.
