We offer a number of services on a Sunday and additionally a more traditional BCP Communions service on Thursday. Please take a look at the options below. Click to find out more information.
1st Sunday of the month.
The 8am Service follows a more traditional style of service which is based on the Book of Common Prayer (1662).
The service is held in the beautiful chapel in the church. It is a wonderful, peaceful and reflective opportunity to commence the day in collective prayer and follows the pattern of the Anglican tradition. There is always a short introduction based on the bible readings of the day.
Communion is always served at this service.
Hymns are not sung at this service, but occasionally the organ is played very quietly at the commencement of the service.
The Family Service at 10am is held in the main Church building. The services have an emphasis on growing and learning together, everyone is welcome whether you are new to All Saints or have been coming along for years. The teaching is bible based, with excellent and wide experienced preaching.
There is an All Age Spot early in the service, after which the children are welcome to go into the Sunday School. For the really young children there is a supervised crèche in the All Saints Centre. The Sunday School is well attended with lots of fun and activities for children of all ages with qualified and experienced full time youth workers.
Music plays an important role in collective worship, All Saints has a gifted and talented group of musicians committed to supporting the 10am service. Contemporary and traditional hymns are included each week. The music groups rotate with most Sundays including piano, organ, band, soloists or choir.
On the 2nd and 5th Sundays there is Holy Communion.
Refreshments of freshly brewed filter coffee, tea and squash are served in the Church and the All Saints’ Centre.
WHAT HAPPENS AT 4pm? – The Barber Family
We have been coming to the 4 o’clock service since it started over 8 years ago. There was a demand for a service that suited younger families and families who had sporting commitments in the morning. The service is held in the All Saints’ Centre with families sitting around small tables. For worship we sing a number of children’s songs (with actions!) along with the more traditional songs. The service averages around 30-40 people so everyone gets to know each other very well. We hold a number of picnics throughout the year which are great fun. The service is particularly popular with teenagers with a teenager based group and every two weeks an after Church social. Sunday school has on average 10-15 children ranging from 3 to 11 years of age. We generally have 30 minutes of teaching time which often involves games, acting, craft, quizzes, reading and prayers. We encourage all children to participate in prayer so that talking to Jesus becomes familiar to them from a young age. Above all we want the children to experience Jesus in a fun and friendly atmosphere which they look forward to each week. We love going to the 4 o’clock service as it is more focussed on younger families and teenagers and being smaller in number encourages everyone to get to know each other.
If this has made you more curious then come along and see and hear for yourself! Everyone is welcome no matter what the years tell you!
The 7pm service is held in the All Saints Centre.
The service provides opportunity for an informal evening celebration. There is a lively and enthusiastic group of church musicians. The band is usually a combination of Piano, Cello, Bass and Drums. The music is varied with contemporary and wonderful hymns of praise to help us lift our hearts and voices to Jesus. Sadly the hall can’t accommodate an organ to join in the joyful celebrations, so look out for the big seasonal evening services held in the church.
Christian teaching is always core in every service and the 7pm service is no exception – with sermon subjects wide and diverse. Excellent speakers are assured bringing experience to help others come to know Jesus and to grow in their faith.
The service is very much mixed ages, everyone is welcome – new Christians, those wanting to explore and seasoned Christians.
On the 4th Sunday Holy Communion. This is rather special as the Centre provides a more intimate setting for the church family to come together and to share in Communion.
The 2nd Sunday of each month is Cafe Church, with casual seating, music provided by the band, interviews and testimonies.
Many folk arrive early for refreshments and a chance for fellowship before the service and stay after the evening service for tea and freshly brewed coffee and homemade cake.
A Service of Holy Communion (based on the Book of Common Prayer (1662)).
This is a time for quiet reflection, prayer and praise.
