Holy Communion

On the second and fourth Sundays of the month we celebrate Holy Communion. These services begin at 9:30am and are usually led by Rev. Richard Newton. We sing 5 hymns and also sing the Gloria (usually to a well-kown hymn- tune) so there’s unlikely to be anything radically new or off-putting. 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.” A spoken service of Communion is held at St. Leonard’s on the First and Third Wednesdays of each month at 11:15am. The times and ceremonies of the Church of England run from Advent Sunday through to ‘Christ, the King’ Sunday, a year later.

Worship 4 All

On the first Sunday of the month - 10am - this “all age” service is led by our ALMs (our Authorised Lay Ministers). Four hymns, simple prayers and an illustrated story make this the ideal service for all the family.

Evensong

During the summer months we’ have Sunday Evensong at 6:30pm, in the Choir. A small, intimate setting for quiet, peaceful contemplation. It followed the traditional sung-service pattern of 3 hymns; the chanted Psalm, Magnificat and Nunc Dimitis, intoned Canticles, and collective prayers.

Lay-led

The Third Sunday of each month - 10am - we take the service ourselves (or, at least, a volunteer does). This means that it really means something to someone and they speak ‘from the heart’. It can take many forms (and it does) but it always includes some elements in common with the other services. This is a real “taste and try” experience .. and they’re all different. So come along, and see if it suits you !
