Click arrows to reveal more information about each.
Common Worship services of Holy Communion and Morning Prayer with hymns to organ accompaniment, or a musical ensemble once a month. The preaching follows the series set for the term and is followed up by study in the church’s Small Groups.
These services will include Mission Partner updates; when Mission Partners are at home or being sent out, time will be taken to commission them. On these Sundays the liturgy may be abbreviated or omitted so that the service concludes by 10.15 at the latest.
The crèche area is available during this service and children are welcome, though most families attend the later service when Junior Church operates.
Personal prayer ministry is available at the communion rail or after the service on request.
Coffee is served after the service on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
The congregational pastors are Clive & Jan Sprawson, Judy West and Rosie Cunliffe.
Morning Worship has a freer liturgical framework with singing of familiar hymns and contemporary worship songs led by a worship band. One service a month includes Holy Communion. Once a term an extra communion service is open to all and children are welcomed to receive the sacraments if parents would like to include them. The preaching follows the series set for the term and is followed up by study in the church’s Small Groups. The services concludes by 12.30.
Junior Church meets each Sunday starting at 11am. Parents please drop off your children at the Parish Centre (or youth at the Latimer’s home) in good time for the start; the exception being the first Sunday of the month that is All Together Worship for everyone in church which is usually a Sign Supported Service.
The crèche area is provided for infants; changing facilities are available. As soon as children can be left alone by their parents, after the age of 2 years, they are encouraged to join the youngest group that meets with Junior Church in the Parish Centre. Children return to the church building by 12.15 in time for the last part of the service.
There is opportunity for personal prayer ministry at the service. This is not counselling but brief prayer to bless what God is doing in the lives of individuals.
Coffee and squash served after every service.
The congregational pastors are Steve Moller and Rosie Cunliffe.
Messy Church on the third Sunday each month. Fun, food and faith at four for younger families. Bible story, activities, music, prayer followed by tea – sandwiches, savouries and cakes, tea, coffee and squash between 4.45 and 5.00 pm. Most leave around 5.30 pm. Parents and grandparents welcome to bring all children though aimed at the under 12s.
These services are not held every week in church so please look carefully at announcements in our weekly email and elsewhere on this site. Youth services each term. Courses running in the Hemingford Garden Room coffee shop once or twice a month.
