Services

The great thing about Christ Church is its ability to cater for both traditional and modern styles of worship by following a varied pattern of worship. Our weekly Sunday services normally follow this pattern:

1st Sunday of the Month
11am – Family Eucharist: Children are present for a song and a brief word at the beginning of the service (a children’s time). They would then go to Junior Church and come back for a blessing during communion. They would be asked about their work after communion. The music will be both traditional & modern and styles will be blended accordingly.
2nd Sunday of the Month
8.30am – Holy Communion, no music.
11am – Matins, children would not be present in this service. Space will be made at the beginning of the service for reflection and quiet prayer. The music and liturgy for this service will be traditional.
3rd Sunday of the Month
8.30am – Holy Communion, no music.
11am – Family Service, this will usually be themed with a separate service sheet; it may or not may not follow the lectionary, children will be present and songs, hymns and the talk will be aimed at being child friendly.
4th Sunday of the Month
11am Sung Communion – This would be Common Worship and would have traditional hymns, choir and organ. Children would not be present and would have their own worship time in Junior Church.
5th Sunday of the Month
Usually 10am – When there is a fifth Sunday in the month we join with St Thomas’ of Thurstonland – please check the parish magazine or the Calendar or Events pages for where the joint service is to be held.

Our Sunday Evening services are held occasionally – see the church magazine or Services list for details.
