Services and worship

Pattern of Services

StMaryStMichael_Bing_Crop.jpgSt Mary and St Michael’s is, first and foremost, a church for its parish. People come to us from a wide range of theological and church traditions, and our services embody a rich spectrum of styles, from the traditional, to creative activities with modern worship songs.

Our largest congregation meets at 10am on Sundays. Parish Communion, either All Age or with Junior Church, is celebrated in the Central style of the Church of England, with a sung setting - formal without being stuffy. Members of the congregation arrange flowers, give lifts, read, administer the chalice, help with children’s activities and occasionally lead intercessions.


Please check the home-page for up-to-date service times during the pandemic. These sometimes have to change at short notice when rules, guidlines and the wider situation changes.

Music has traditionally been a strength of our church. Our professional organist plays for most services and for weddings and funerals; a music group plays for the Third Sunday service and occasionally at other services.

Our choir sings at festivals and special occasions.
