8.00 a.m. BCP Holy Communion, 1st Sunday of the month
On the first Sunday of the month, we hold an 8 a.m. Holy Communion service which is a quiet service, following the Church of England Book of Common Prayer (BCP).
10.30 a.m. Holy Communion or Morning Worship at St Saviour’s Church
Our morning service is a mixture of traditional and modern worship. We follow the Church of England service format and have a crèche and groups for children and young people. Each week there is the opportunity to be prayed for after the service, by our prayer ministry team. The service normally finishes around 11.45 a.m. and is followed by the opportunity to chat over tea and coffee.
Holy Communion is on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.
Morning Worship is on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month.
On the 5th Sunday, sometimes it is Holy Communion and sometimes Morning Worship.
4.30 p.m. Messy Church, 2nd Sunday of the month
Messy Church is a fun interactive service for primary school children and their parents. We have art and crafts, a story and lively music, followed by a tasty meal. It is a great family fun time for £1 a head.
All welcome as we believe children can learn from adults, and adults can learn from children. Children must be accompanied.
4.30 p.m. Gather (Café Church), 4th Sunday of the month
Starting at 4.30 p.m. with a cup of tea, ‘Gather at Five’ is a new, experimental, café-style informal service at St Saviour’s Church.
7.00 p.m. Healing Service, 1st Sunday of the month
The focus of this service is on worship, the Word and listening to God. This service usually has an extended time for us to draw close to God in worship and be open to the filling of the Spirit, finishing around 8.30 p.m. Prayer ministry is available, especially prayer for healing.
7.00 p.m. Evening Service, 3rd Sunday of the month
Evening worship is an informal version of Evening Prayer with opportunity to pray and listen to God.
It usually finishes by 8.15 p.m.
See the calendar for more information
Healing Service (once a month at 7 p.m. – see calendar)
We hope that you will feel at home, whether it is your first visit or you are a regular. The service is very informal and inclusive. Please feel free to sit, stand or kneel during the service as you feel most comfortable, and if you need to leave before the end of the service that is fine.
RELAX, REST AND RESPOND
During the service there will be an opportunity for you to receive the ministry of Laying on of Hands with prayer for healing if you wish. The ministry team will have met together before the service to pray and to minister to each other, because we all have need of healing, whether in body, mind or spirit. We ask for guidance of the Holy Spirit as we have no power ourselves; all healing comes from God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
At this service we do not counsel or offer advice; if you wish to give your name and a short explanation of what your needs are, the minister will lay hands on you and pray for you, but if you wish to say nothing that is OK and those ministering will pray as they feel led. If you would like to talk to someone, please ask at the end of the service.
When we come to the time of ministry, the team will come forward to pray for those in the Healing Book and then, after a moment of prayer, will be ready to receive anyone who wishes to have ministry. There are usually several of the ministery team at the front and sometimes also in each of the side chapels. If you wish to go to one of the side chapels we suggest that you come and sit in the front row at the time of ministry so that you are able to see when they are free. If you prefer to receive ministry where you are sitting, please indicate that and we will come to you.
