Holy Rood Church
The 9:30 am Sunday service is a well-attended, lively, contemporary and informal family service with a worship band. All of the songs, readings and prayers are shown on overhead screens so you will have no difficulty in following the service. The service generally lasts about one hour and fifteen minutes: coffee/tea and biscuits are served in the church hall afterwards. During this service a crèche is provided, and the older children (infant and junior school aged children) have an opportunity to go out to separate clubs. Occasionally, there is an "All in family service" where all the children stay in the church for the entire service.
The 11.10 am Sunday service is a more traditional service with hymn singing accompanied by the church organ. No crèche or children's activities are provided during this service. Wine and nibbles are served after the service on the first Sunday of the month!
The 6.30 pm Sunday evening services are fairly informal: they last a bit longer than the morning services. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays there is Holy Communon, and on 3rd and 5th Sundays Prayer and Praise.
‘Church in the Community’ is on the first Sunday evening of the month, we don't meet in our church buildings, we go our separate ways in small groups to do church in different ways. Maybe at the pub, in a cafe, in a home, out for a walk, watching and discussing a film or a piece of art. Look out for details in the notice sheet - or start a new expression of church yourself!
Every Thursday morning at 10.30 am there is a Holy Communion service at Holy Rood.
