Our Sunday Services

Our usual service times are:

8am at St Mary’s Church – Holy Communion (BCP)

10.15am at St Alban’s Church – Morning Prayer / Communion

5.30pm at St Mary’s – Threshold Service 

There is no need to book in advance for any of our services.  At present, all those attending Sunday services need to wear a face mask (unless exempt) and observe social distancing, in line with current government guidance.  We also ask everyone to sign in for NHS test and trace with either their phone, or by filling in their details on the sign-in sheet. 

From Sunday 27 June 2021, we will no longer be posting a weekly online sunday service, but we do plan to share online reflections from time to time on our YouTube page

Do keep in touch with us via our facebook page, and please let us know if there is anything particular we might be able to help with. 

Thursdays Together continues every Thursday morning, outside St Alban’s, from 9.15 to 10.30am.   Anyone is welcome to come.

Over the summer holidays, we will be able to offer:

  • Food from local supermarkets that would otherwise have gone to waste
  • Colouring and simple craft activities for children outside
  • Hot and cold drinks and snacks served at tables outside
  • Information on other services and support available

During the holidays we won’t be handing out long life food but if you find yourself facing a crisis or emergency then please talk to us and we will do our best to help.  We’d love to see you!   (Every Thursday 9:15-10:30am, outside St Alban’s Church, Tulip Road, SO16 3BB)
