The main church service at St Mary Magdalene Church: is on Sunday morning at 10.00am every Sunday.

The Congregation: is very mixed in terms of gender, age, and ethnicity. Everyone is welcome to attend. Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible adult. About a third of our congregation are children.

Each month the services are as follows:

First Sunday ~ Family Communion (A special order of service)

Second Sunday ~ Holy Communion (Common Worship - Order One)

Third Sunday ~ Holy Communion (Common Worship - Order Two)

Fourth Sunday ~ Holy Communion (Common Worship - Order One)

Fifth Sunday ~ Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer)

Communion: In our church, everyone who is baptised and confirmed is welcome to receive communion at the altar rail. Those who are not yet confirmed and all children may receive a blessing at the alter rail. If you are not able to able to come to the altar to receive communion, the servers can bring it to you. For those not able to attend church at all, due to disabilities, please contact the Rector to receive home communion. Communion is taken in a Covid-19 safe way at St Mary’s Church.

Sunday School: The Sunday School has been closed during the pandemic and will restart in 2023.

Children’s activities in Church: We presently have colouring and puzzle activities at the back of the church during the Sunday service, and this is led by a very well qualified member of our congregation. The children do not leave the church during the service. So parents continue to be responsible for their own children. The activities are always based on the theme for the day.
