Our 10am Service is a family-friendly, inclusive service of Holy Communion is our main Sunday service.  It includes both traditional and modern hymns and worship songs.  Our services follow the seasons of the church year and our preaching aims to offer intellectual and spiritual challenge.  Everyone is welcome to stay afterwards for tea and coffee.

On the first Sunday of the month, we have an all-age Communion service with children involved in the prayers and an all-age address. During 2020 this service is taking place at St James School.  Our informal worship group lead our singing. Sometimes there are christenings as part of this service.  It usually lasts less than an hour.  St James School, Merestones Road.  GL50 2RS.  Map
