Church Services in the Benefice

Worship is our life blood and our joy. As a group of churches we offer a variety of opportunities to come together in church, and at the moment online during the coronavirus lockdown. Our regular worship is on a Sunday, with All-age services and Communion, Evensong, and Contemporary. Our worship has a variety of styles from more traditional to contemporary. The Benefice Ministry team meets once each month to reflect on our worshipping life, and plan together.

Although we are now back in Church, our main 10am Sunday Serivce is also shared via Zoom and is likely to continue for some time.

Please refer to our weekly notices (which can be downloaded from the Home Page for details). 

When our churches are fully open, our typical pattern of services is:


8.30am Holy Communion traditional said service from the Book of Common Prayer
(rotates around the Benefice)

10am at St John's Hook, 1st Sunday of month is an All Age Service (no communion), the 3rd Sunday is a Service of Word (no communion) and
