Breakfast Church meets on the third Sunday of the month. This is an interactive multi-media event for all ages concluding with a message and sung worship by 10 am.
9 am Common Worship
(Service at 9.30am in St Margaret’s Hemingford Abbots on the 3rd Sunday of the month and for other joint services)
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 lectionary 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.
Children are welcome, though most families attend the later service.
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 Judy West and Rosie Cunliffe.
11 am Whole Church Worship
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. The teaching follows the series set for the term and is followed up by study in the church’s Small Groups. The services conclude by 12.30.
From January 2018 Junior Church will meet on the 2nd and 4th Sundays 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 at 11am. This is usually a Sign Supported 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.
