Services

Our three churches offer a range of service styles each Sunday.  Our regular services include: said and sung Holy Communion; All Age Worship; and service of the Word.  Special services are held to celebrate major festivals such as Christmas, Easter, Harvest etc. and several times a year the three parishes worship together in a joint Benefice service.

You are also welcome to join us for a chat over a cup of coffee after each service.

HARVEST SERVICES IN THE BENEFICE

Thornfalcon Church – Sunday 29 September at 11.00 am followed by a buffet lunch at Hammonds (courtesy of Michael and Sarah Small). This will be a joint Benefice service this time. Our speaker will be Julian Brooks, and he will be helping us think about our care for God’s creation. Afterwards, a buffet lunch will be served and if you would like to stay for lunch, please would you let us know by signing the list in one of our churches, or being in touch via the Benefice office. There will be a charge for the lunch, but it is always a fantastic spread, including two courses, and wine or juice.

SERVICE OF THANKSGIVING FOR LOVED ONES WHO HAVE DIED

SUNDAY 3 NOVEMBER AT 3.00 PM RUISHTON CHURCH

Every year, we hold a service to which we invite the families whose funerals we have been involved in over the previous year or so, from our parishes. This is a simple service, with suitable hymns, readings and music, where we remember our loved ones who have died, and have an act of remembering.

This service is for anyone who has lost a loved one at any time, and would like to remember them in a meaningful way.

You are invited to bring a flower to remember them, and during the service, we will gather up the flowers and place them on the altar. Nearer the time, there will be invitations in our churches for you to give to any friends or family whom you would like to invite to this special service. Afterwards, we serve tea, coffee and cake in the church meeting room.
