Visitors and newcomers are always warmly welcomed. We alternate 8.00am and 9.30am services with St Andrew’s, Nether Wallop. The normal pattern is shown below and the specific calendar for this month and next may be found by clicking on Church services March or on Church services_April
First Sunday of the month
Family Worship at 9.30am, a time for the whole family and church community to come to church for worship, teaching and fellowship. The style of worship combines the contemporary with the traditional; modern hymns are often accompanied by guitar and keyboard. Refreshments are provided after the service.
Second and fourth Sundays of the month at 8.00am
There are contemplative, said services, following the Book of Common Prayer. They include a short sermon based on the set lectionary readings. There is a 9.30am service at St Andrew’s Nether Wallop on these days (2nd Sunday Communion, 4th Sunday Family Worship): see http://www.standrewsnetherwallop.co.uk
Second Sundays at 4.00pm
There is an informal meeting (“Tea Time Praise”) in the church hall, with songs, testimonies and prayer. Open to all. Free tea, coffee, soft drinks, biscuits and cake from 3.45pm. Next one April 14th.
Third Sunday of the month
Family Communion at 9.30am. The service follows the Common Worship liturgy with an original Gloria and Sanctus by a local composer. Hymns are usually accompanied by an organist or pianist. Refreshments are provided afterwards. There is normally a Sunday School (“Impress”) in the Church Hall from 9.25am for children in KS1/2 and the children are brought into the church for the Communion, but there will be no Sunday School on April 21st (Easter Sunday) when all will be welcome at the 9.30am service.
Fifth Sunday of a month (but not on March 31st which is Mothering Sunday – see Church services March)
A joint Team Communion service is held. Next one June 30th at St Peter’s Over Wallop (9.30am).
