A Taizé or candlelight service is held periodically. This is a service of rhythmic chants, silence and meditative reflection, followed by the opportunity of laying on of hands and anointing for those who wish. Occasionally a healing service also will be held for those who burdened and need to be uplifted. (James 5:13-16).
Three services are normally held each Sunday.
Holy Communion (BCP) at 8.00 am.
Family Worship at 10.00 am On the 2nd & 4th Sundays.
Family Communion at 10.00 am On the 1st & 3rd Sundays
Sung Eucharist (BCP) at 10.00 am on the 5th Sunday.
Evensong (BCP) at 6.30 pm on the 1st, 3rd & 4th Sunday
Choral Eucharist (BCP) at 6.30 pm on the 2nd Sunday.

The (CW) lectionary is now used for Sunday scripture readings.
The church itself provides an outward and visible sign of the Presence of God. This is not only experienced in Worship but also by the many who find a place of quietness within the Church whose doors are open throughout the day.
Music is an important element of services and there is a robed adult choir of up to twenty members singing 4 part harmony supporting choral services each Sunday as well as a number of seasonal services. They also hold concerts periodically and sing at weddings.
