Worship

At the heart of the life and purpose of our Benefice is that spirit of thanksgiving and worship of God which leads naturally to varied outreach and pastoral care. And our hope is that every worshipper should go home from every service knowing they have been touched by God’s love.     

                                   

We have a full schedule of Sunday and weekday services, as well as Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals, Thanksgivings, Memorials, Reconciliation and Healing Services. Our liturgical practice incorporates the variety and beauty of our four church buildings and their beautiful spaces. Our liturgies vary from the simplest spoken services to festival services which incorporate our choir’s diverse musical offering -traditional settings and hymns to contemporary songs. We treasure the best of Anglican heritage, whilst endeavouring to foster an inclusive and progressive spirit.
