St Paul's

Tradition

The principal service in St Paul's is the Said Eucharist (or Family Communion Service) at 10:30  on Wednesday’s, making use of modern (Common Worship) material. Worship is inclusive, accessible, concise, and children are always welcome. Members of the congregation take an active part in reading the lessons and leading prayers.

 

Booking a place

We are Covid Safe and there will be restrictions in place which means that we are limited to 9 households in the congregation.

All visitors are required to sign in and if possible, check in using the NHS Track and Trace app. To ensure social distancing is adhered to, it is necessary that anyone who wishes to attend a service pre-books: i.e., if you wish to attend a midweek service, you will need to telephone/text our Parish Administrator on 07765 182 042  (or email sbrparish@gmail.com) to let her know.

If you do wish to attend the midweek services, please let Julie know in good time but most certainly before Tuesday each week. If that service is full, then your name will go on the list for the next available Wednesday service. Please note that there will be no possibility of physically attending the service unless you have “pre-booked”; we need to ensure that safe distancing is possible within the building.

 

Liturgy

Our hymn book is Hymns Old and New, offering a wide variety of worship songs from ancient to modern. The liturgical parts of the service are spoken rather than sung, making it easier for most people to take part. The services are as "unstuffy" as we can make them, in keeping with the attractive, virtually ornament-free interior of the church. Families feel right at home here. The lobby area is separated from the worship space by a glass screen, allowing parents and children to leave the church briefly during services if the need arises, without feeling cut off from what is happening inside.
