We meet for our main weekly service on Sundays at 10am. Worship is traditional but relaxed, with singing supported by our choir, the St Andrew's Singers. Services last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, and are followed by refreshments in the Church Hall.
Our usual monthly pattern of services is as follows:
- 1st and 3rd Sundays: Morning Worship, with a focus on hearing from the Bible
- 2nd, 4th and 5th Sunday: Holy Communion, using the contemporary Common Worship liturgy
During term time, there is also often a Sunday school for children during the service. See here for more details.
We live-stream Sunday 10 am services on the St Andrew's channel on YouTube. However, there may be members of our fellowship without computer access who are unable to watch. It may be possible to record these services onto DVDs which can be distributed later to watch using DVD equipment. If you think this would be helpful to you or someone else, please let Sheila Nunney know.
8am Holy Communion
On the first Sunday of each month, there is a shorter, quiet service of Holy Communion in the Old Church, using the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer.
Informal Evening Worship
Also meeting on the first Sunday of each month at 6.30pm, our informal service is a cafe-style service with refreshments, more contemporary music and interactive ways of learning from the Bible. For the current series see here.
There is wheelchair access to the Church Hall. There is a portable ramp to give access to the church (which is a listed building). If you find it is not down when you arrive for a service, please ask anyone to fetch a member of the welcome team. If you wish to visit the church at other times, there is one shallow step but the door is heavy and you may find it helpful to bring a companion with you.
A sound loop system is used during services in the New Church. Service booklets for 10 am Sunday services, hymn books and weekly Notice sheets are available in large print.
There is a toilet in the vestry at the back of the New Church and there are further toilets in the Church Hall (including one for people with disabilities). (These facilities are only open during services and other events.)
