Engaging with God is central to what we are and do. Our home page contains a calendar which shows the public services in the church.

Sanctuary lightsThe services usually last no more than an hour. Ours is a traditional way of worship, with traditional language and ceremonies — incense is used at all services except the 8 am and weekday masses — but also with a strong emphasis upon inclusiveness of age and gender.

The doors are usually opened 15 minutes before Sunday services, and 5 minutes before weekday services. After the 9 am All Age Mass and 10:30 High Mass we usually offer tea and coffee, so that those attending that service can get to know each other better.

See our High Mass photos page to see pictures showing what happens at a typical High Mass.

You can obtain from our Downloads page leaflets explaining what happens at a typical low mass, mass for children, and high mass. The Church of England has a page explaining what the mass is about.

We rejoice in our inheritance with all the saints and we thank God for the blessings he has given us here. We are worth a visit. Come and taste and see how gracious the Lord is.
