Holy Communion

At present we celebrate Holy Communion in St. Leonard on the 4 th Sunday of the minth. These services begin at 9:30am. Current restrictions mean that the choir sing 3 hymns during the service - and the congregation listen. This may change after June 21st. The Church of England website says that .. “Holy Communion is celebrated by the whole people of God gathered for worship. The ministry of the members of the congregation is expressed through their active participation together in the words and actions of the service, but also by some of them reading the Scripture passages, leading the prayers of intercession, and, if authorized, assisting with the distribution of communion.” Click to enlarge

Evensong

During the summer months we have usually had a traditional Sunday Evensong at 6:30pm, in the Choir. A small, intimate setting for quiet, peaceful contemplation. It follows the traditional sung-service pattern of 3 hymns; the chanted Psalm, Magnificat and Nunc Dimitis, intoned Canticles, and collective prayers.
Sunday 4th July - 10:30 at St. L. Communion Revd. Kim Topham officiating.

Exception:
“There are four main types of worship that Christians can engage in: Liturgical worship Non-liturgical worship Informal worship Private worship” GCSE ‘Practices in Christianity’ Our Worship 4 All services try to be a friendly involvement for all in a more informal manner - which still retains all the essential elements. They are on the first Sunday each month (and on the third Sunday - in the three churches in rotation). Hymns can be of all types and styles, including ‘Worship Songs’ and more contemporary material - children are encouraged to chose what we do and to lead those elements. The supporting music can be provided by mixed ensembles, by ‘backing tracks’ or might feature a recording.
The times and ceremonies of the Church of England run from Advent Sunday through to ‘Christ, the King’ Sunday, a year later.
