Description of Services
8am Said Eucharist
Our 8am Mass is a said service with a short sermon and is for those with a quieter more reflective spirituality, for those who will be going out with the family later on, and for those who are on the early shift at work.
10am Family Eucharist
The 10am Mass is a sung Family Eucharist with incense and a short sermon. Its style is gentle modern catholic with a good blend of old and new music assisted by the choir or on the second Sunday of the month by our very own church orchestra.
On the second Sunday of the month this service becomes our All Age Mass, which is slightly shorter than other Sundays because Junior Church stays with us and often helps to lead the first part of the service.
Sunday evening worship
On the first Sunday of the month a small group of us gather in the Holy Spirit Chapel to say Compline or night prayer. Compline is a very beautiful short service based on the last monastic office of the day. In effect we are joining with Anglican and Roman Catholic monks and nuns all over Britain as we say the psalms and pray for God’s protection and peace. Compline is a beautiful service. Do come and join us.
Because we are in a team ministry with St Margaret’s Uxbridge our midweek pattern of services is shared across the Parish.
9am Morning Prayer
Come and join the Parish clergy as we say Morning Prayer in the Holy Spirit Chapel in St Andrew’s at 9am. We meet every morning except Wednesday when St Andrew’s has the Mass for Mums and Toddlers and we meet for Midday prayers at St Margaret’s at 12noon.
Wednesday 9.30am Mass for Mums and Toddlers
The Wednesday Mass is a special Eucharist with lots of songs and a short child friendly story/talk. It’s an ideal way of making your communion and enabling the very young to get used to being in church and taking part in worship.
We always have tea and toast in the Church hall from 9am till 9.20am so mums and carers can do a school drop off and then have a well earned cuppa before the service starts.
