For this week's services, please see the Services & What's On page.

Parish Church of St Peter & St Paul

Sunday 8am Eucharist: a quiet prayerful service with Holy Communion and a sermon, lasting 30 - 40 minutes. This service is celebrated at the historic High Altar in the East End of the church.

Sunday 10.30am Choral Eucharist: our biggest celebration of the week, celebrated in the main body of the building.

We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ with singing, incense, processions, and words that have resonated through the centuries. Except in August when they take a break, the Parish Choir sings at this service, often joined by the Junior Choir. This service lasts about 75 minutes and is followed by tea and coffee and a chance to chat.

Midweek services: peaceful and prayerful services in the Lady Chapel, lasting no longer than half an hour.

Accessibility: there is step-free access to the church and designated wheelchair spaces near the front. There are toilets, including a disabled toilet. We are aware that we need to improve the accessibility of our building, especially the opening of doors, but in the meantime the welcome team will be happy to assist you.

Children in Church: we are an intergenerational community and services are open to people of all ages. At present, children remain in the main worship space throughout the service, and there is an area near the front provided with toys and books for younger children. Many children participate in worship as members of the choir and serving team.
