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_August
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. There will be no Tea Time Praise in August. The next one will be on September 8th.
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 accompanied by the organist or a piano. Refreshments are provided afterwards. On August 18th, the service will be led by the Archdeacon of Winchester, the Ven Richard Brand. 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 IMPRESS in August.
Fifth Sunday of a month
A joint Team Communion service is held. The next one will be on September 29th at St Michael’s West Andover.
