Sunday evenings: A varied programme from 6.30pm - gather for tea/coffee from 6pm
First Sunday: Open Table shared meal with informal liturgy
On the first Sunday of each month, Open Table, our ecumenical Christian worship community which offers a warm welcome to people who are: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer / Questioning, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA), and all who seek an inclusive Church, meets at 6.30pm for a bring and share meal and informal worship. Doors open 6pm for refreshments as we set the table with whatever you're able to bring and share (vegetarian contributions please). We'll share bread and wine as we remember Jesus’ last meal with his friends, followed by an optional sharing circle where we listen prayerfully to each other and get to know each other better.

Second Sunday: The Well or a Healing Service
The 2nd Sunday of each month is either The Well or a Healing Service (see notices or home page).
The Well is our Celtic Worship Community, offering a chance to explore the riches of the Celtic tradition and an approach to spirituality which finds God alive as much in the natural world as in the words of scripture. Simple liturgies, times of silence, poetry and art all play their part in the mix.
The Healing Service is a time and space to seek and experience healing and wholeness for yourself, others and the world.
Third Sunday: Open Table
On the third Sunday of each month, Open Table, our ecumenical Christian worship community which offers a warm welcome to people who are: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer / Questioning, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA), and all who seek an inclusive Church, meets at 6.30pm for a communion service. Doors open 6pm for refreshments, and you are most welcome to stay after the service for refreshments and to get to know each other better. Click here to visit the Open Table webpage for more information and contact details.
Fourth Sunday: Spirit and Song
Spirit & Song is a monthly time of devotional worship at when we come together with music and song to open ourselves to the presence of Goodness, Beauty, Truth and Love - the Presence of God. We tend to use short contemporary worship songs or chants and increasingly write our own.
We see worship as a transformative spiritual practice bringing encouragement, peace and healing as we let go of the thought chatter of our minds to centre ourselves in God through Christ. We worship through song, have times of silence resting in the Presence of God and may share thoughts, prayers or poems together.
Fifth Sunday: varied, alternative or experimental
The 5th Sunday, occurring just four times a year, is an opportunity for something a little different. There may be a creative or alternative service, an opportunity to explore some aspect of spirituality, or a film exploring contemporary themes. Each will be announced in advance in the Sunday newsletter downloadable from the welcome page of the website.
