Two services every Sunday at 8:15 AM and 10:30 AM.
Communion on the first and third Sundays at both services unless
The first Sunday tends to be traditional with Holy Communion.
The second Sunday tends to be a blended service with the
addition of the St.Mark-e-teers (see below) at both services.
In addition, during the Sunday School year, the Sunday School
singers frequently sing at the 10:30 service.
The third Sunday is a blended service with Communion being the
Pilgrim style, with prayer partners waiting at the communion
altar to assist with any Prayers of Petition or for Health.
The choir usually sings at both services.
The fourth Sunday is usually a contemporary worship service led
by our own The 100 Voices (Joyful Noise renamed).
The fifth Sunday, when there is one, is traditional and may be
altered during holidays.
Each Sunday, fellowship with refreshments is provided following
each service in the adjacent Fellowship Hall.
