SERVICES

St. Patrick's congregation extends a warm Christian welcome to all who come to worship in our church.  Worshippers who receive Holy Communion in their own churches are welcome to do so at our services.

Sunday services at St. Patrick’s are usually held at 10.30am.  The current pattern is a service of Morning Prayer in the Book of Common Prayer liturgy on the first Sunday in the month; a service of Holy Communion in the Common Worship Order One liturgy on the third Sunday; and either a Family Service or Family Communion on the fourth Sunday.  Services on the second and (where applicable) fifth Sundays are on a benefice-wide basis shared between the seven churches involved, so there is usually not a service in this church.  The pattern of services for the ensuing month, including any special or weekday services, will be posted on the calendar as soon as they have been settled.  Visitors are advised to contact one of the churchwardens or the verger to check the position if there is no calendar information on the date of their proposed visit.

Large print service and hymn books are available - please ask the person handing out the books.  There is an induction loop system in this church for those with hearing difficulties.  Light refreshments are served after Sunday services and if you have not visited our church before, please ask someone to show you round as there is plenty to see.

Baptisms, weddings, funerals and other special services are by arrangement with the Vicar.
