St. Bartholomew’s Service Times

WEDNESDAY

Holy Communion 10.30am followed by coffee and discussion

SUNDAY

8.00 am – 4th Sunday of the month – Holy Communion

This is a quiet, reflective time, especially suited for “early birds” and those with a passion for the beautiful language of the Book of Common Prayer (1662). It is a “said” service, lasting about 30 minutes. An opportunity to start your Sunday with prayer and the sacrament; you would be very welcome to join us.

9.30am Morning services

1st, 3rd and 4th Sunday of the month – Parish Eucharist

Parish Eucharist. This is our main service and follows the liturgy from Common Worship, including variations that celebrate the seasons and festivals of the Christian year. The style of worship is traditional and is accompanied with music from our beautiful organ and our choir. Our clergy wear vestments, and the focus of our worship is the celebration of the Eucharist, or Lord’s Supper. All are welcome at this service, including children, who have free access, during the service, to our children’s corner and who are welcome to receive a blessing at Communion time.

2nd Sunday of the month – All Age Worship

 All Age  Worship. This is a good opportunity to worship together as a family and where children are particularly encouraged to take part.  This service is particularly suitable for families  who are perhaps thinking of trying out church for the first time.  We aim to provide a warm, relaxed and enjoyable worship space.

Tea and Coffee after all our 9.30am services is a must for fellowship and getting to know each other better, and if you are visiting, we would welcome the opportunity to say “hello” over a nice cuppa.

5th Sunday

Whenever there is a 5th Sunday in the month a joint service is held with the 3 other churches in the parish. All benefice services start at 10.00 am. In January 17 the service will be at Barkisland.

6.30pm  on the 1st Sunday of the month, Sung Evensong

The Sung Evensong is a traditional Sung Evensong, following the liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer (1662). It lasts about 30 minutes and offers an opportunity to end the day in peaceful and reverent prayer, giving thanks and praise to God.
