Our doors are open to our congregation and community and services are taking place throughout the Ryburn Benefice of churches. We look forward to welcoming you into our churches, and ask that you continue to observe all current Covid safe guidelines while in our church buildings. Under current guidance, we cannot greet each other with a handshake or hug while sharing The Peace. We have recently reinstated the option to receive the wine from the shared chalice during Communion, but are very much leaving this up to the individual as we are aware many still prefer to receive the bread only. We can, however, share God’s Word and Love with each other, and trust you understand the need to introduce these measures to continue to keep everyone safe and well.
We are very pleased that our monthly Messy Church sessions have restarted on the first Saturday of the month, starting on 2 April, in the Community Centre opposite church.
We have a weekly Sunday worship with Holy Communion commencing at 10.00am.
The In It Together service, an informal interactive service, is on the 2nd Sunday of the month commencing at 10.00am.
Prayer Breakfast is held at 9.30am on the first Saturday of each month – a chance for quiet reflection and prayer for our community and world in church, and then the fellowship continues with breakfast together across the road at the Community Café.
Messy Church takes place in St Peter’s Community Centre, across the road from church, at 3.00pm on the 4th Saturday of each month. This is a free worship session open to all, accessing the Bible and its teachings through stories, play and creativity. Each session conclude with a simple meal shared together.
Occasionally Joint Benefice Services are held at one of the other churches in the Benefice but this will be published in the News section.
There are occasional weekday services at special times in the church’s year (for example Maundy Thursday). These are also advertised in the News section.
