Sunday at 9:30am
On Sundays we celebrate the Holy Eucharist. Here we take part in the celebration of the last supper which Jesus had with his disciples. We gather to not only remember the last supper but also partake in the supper where Jesus used bread and wine to be for us his body and blood. This is the most important and central act of worship in our Christian lives. Whether you’ve been to this before or are new you are more than welcome.
On the fourth Sunday of the month we have a Family Service. This is a much less formal act of worship where we simply come to hear from the Bible and pray. We usually have a more interactive talk about the Bible this Sunday which is more child friendly. The children from Sunday school also take a larger part in the service. It is always lovely to see people of all ages join us for this act of worship.
This is a quieter Holy Eucharist. We still come to share in the body and blood of Christ, but this is a shorter, calmer and more reflective service lasting only half an hour.
First Tuesday of the month
Walsingham Mass and Exposition of the Sacrament
During this service we unite with our brothers and sisters across the Saint Asaph Walsingham Cell group and the worldwide church in offering Mass for the work and pilgrims of the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. This important place of pilgrimage has been a great source of God’s strength and nourishing love for many centuries and continues to be so for thousands of Christians today.
After the Mass the sacrament of Jesus’ body is left exposed on the altar for all to gather around Christ for prayer, adoration and praise. This can be a very focusing and intense experience of our love for Christ and of his love for us.
Last Sunday of the month at 6pm
Evensong and Benediction
Evensong is a peaceful and calm way to end the day. At evening prayer, or sometimes called Vespers, we give thank to God for the blessing throughout the day and pray for his protection throughout the night. At the end of Evensong, we are not blessed by the Priest, but by Christ himself; this is called Benediction. The host from the Eucharist, the body of Christ, is used to make the sign of the cross over the congregation.
