8 am Holy Communion (1662 BCP, every Sunday)
This is a quiet and traditional service of Holy Communion, according to the Book of Common Prayer, with a short address. It lasts approximately 45 minutes, and breakfast is served afterwards on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

10am Parish Communion
This is a more contemporary celebration of Holy Communion using an updated liturgy, yet retaining many of the traditional elements that create a sense of dignity, awe and reverence.

A full robed choir led by our dedicated Organist and Choir Master, greatly enhance our main weekly corporate act of worship.

Children are most welcome, and are included at the beginning and end of this service . A flourishing Sunday school and Crèche operate throughout, which parents are invited, but not obliged, to use.  Follow the link to find out more about Families at St Mary's
