The Rhythm of Worship at St Mary’s
Worship lies at the heart of our Christian life together at St Mary’s. Worship at St Mary’s draws on a number of liturgical traditions. We value music and silence, word and action, the ancient and the contemporary. The rhythm of liturgy gives shape to the year, the month, the week and even the day itself.
Our main Sunday service is a Parish Eucharist at 10 am. We sing many parts of this Common Worship service together. Children come for the first part of the service, and then enjoy their Fish and Chip Club together, returning in time to come up to the Communion rail for a blessing. From time to time, prayers for healing with the laying on of hands are offered during this service. Once a term, we have a family service altogether, either in the Church or in the Church Hall.
We use the Book of Common Prayer again for Evening Prayer. This service also includes hymns. From time to time, there are evening services of Music and Readings to mark special days in the church’s year.
Once a month, there is a meditative Taize-style service, at 8 pm on Sundays, drawing on music from the Taize community in France.
We deeply value the riches of the Church’s year and run seasonal events to help us reflect on the wider story of which we are all part.
