Church Services

Sunday services

Everyone is welcome to any of our services. There is no dress code - while mostly people dress in smart casual, we want you to feel free come exactly as you are comfortable. Usually, we have two services each Sunday. At 9am there is a generally less formal service which runs for around 45 minutes. This is followed at 10.15 by a worship service which runs for around 45-60 minutes. This service usually has a greater music component, with the participation of the choir, more hymns, and a musical postlude at the conclusion of the service.

Communion is celebrated

  • 9am – on the first Sunday in each month 

  • 10.15am service – on the third Sunday in each month.
