We meet for worship at 11am on Sundays. During the summer, we meet in St Dunstan’s church building, but from late November until just before Easter, we hold our services in the village school (for reasons of warmth). We also provide opportunities for worship online here.
Everyone is welcome, from babies to the most senior citizens, and we try to make the services accessible to all.
Our services are a mixture of the traditional and the contemporary and this is appropriate for our mixed congregation. They are fairly informal, relaxed and friendly, though our business is the serious stuff of eternal life and the transformation of hearts. The Rector’s sermons are based upon the Bible and help us to see what God is saying to us and how we might appropriately respond.
At the moment, we are using the Morning Prayer service each week. In non-covid times, we have two services of Holy Communion each month (1st Sunday and 4th Sunday), and two “Praise” services which tend to include more singing (2nd Sunday and 3rd Sunday). When there’s a 5th Sunday, we hold an additional “Praise” service. During the school summer holidays (late-July and August) and after Christmas, we join in worship with the other churches of the benefice, sometimes meeting in their buildings. We know this pattern sounds complicated – please check our calendar for clarification!
Following our services (though not, sadly, at the moment because of covid), fairly-traded refreshments are served and we enjoy spending time in one another’s company, encouraging one another to grow in our faith, supporting one another in hard times and rejoicing in the good things.
