Services

We would love to welcome you to our Sunday services.

Please watch the videos / see the info below and get in touch if you would like to attend. 

8am - Traditional Service

This service, on the first Sunday of the month, is a quiet, early morning service for quiet reflection.  We follow the Holy Communion service from the Book of Common Prayer. 

10:30am - Morning Service

This service, which runs on every Sunday except the first Sunday of the month, is a lively mixture of contemporary and traditional worship with relevant and engaging Bible teaching. At the moment we are unable to run a crèche, but there are children's groups for those aged 3-11. Our services currently last just under an hour. There’s no particular dress code, although casual is perhaps becoming the norm.

Groups for children and young people start off straight away in the lower hall. Activities include a Bible story and some sort of arts and crafts. All our leaders undergo the appropriate DBS checking procedures (the Church Council has adopted the Diocesan Safeguarding policy and takes this matter seriously).

We are delighted to announce that Sunday services have now restarted. However, at present we are only be able to hold one service each week. with reduced capacity. This is at 10:30am each week, apart from on the first Sunday of each month, when the service will be held at 8am. Our online services will continue alongside these.
Attendance is via a  5 group rota system,  Those in the church family should have now received information about when they are invited to attend. We would like to continue to welcome guests, and as such have reserved a number of places each week for those who would like to visit - if you would like to attend please contact the church office by the middle of the week, and await confirmation of your place.
The church is open for private prayer or reflection from 10-11am on Wednesdays, to which all are welcome. At this time (as well as on Sunday mornings) we will be collecting items for Plymouth Foodbank.
Our facilities are now available for permitted users to book and use, subject to an additional COVID risk assessment being completed and agreement to a few new terms & conditions - see  the 'Enquiries' section for more information.
