When should I arrive?

The Parish Communion Sunday morning service starts at 10am. You’ll be greeted on the door by one of our sidesmen who will give you an order of service, hymn book and a pew sheet (containing notices of forthcoming events). If you let the sidesperson know you are new they will give you one of our welcome packs.

What should I expect?

The Parish Communion service starts at 10am and during the second hymn the Sunday School and mini Sunday School (crèche) process out of the church and over to the parish hall. Parents and carers are welcome either to stay in church or to accompany their children. The Sunday School come back into church for communion and later show us some of their activities. Our service ends around 11am, with tea and coffee provided in the parish hall.

We also have regular parade services for the Scouts and Guide groups.  The young people stay with us for the whole service and the sermon is geared towards an all-age congregation.  Usually there is no communion at a parade service.

What other services are there?

We have another service at 9am on a Sunday morning which is a simple all-age service with three hymns, a Bible reading, short sermon and prayers. It lasts 30 minutes and is intended for anyone who wishes to come to a shorter/earlier service, both old and young.

Holy Communion is said at 8am on a Sunday morning and at 9.30am on a Wednesday morning. Morning and Evening prayer take place in the church at 9am and 5pm Tuesday to Friday.

What do we believe?

We are part of the Diocese of London and the Deanery of Hampton in the Church of England. Our worship has the following characteristics:

  • ‘normal Church of England’ (neither high nor low but valuing both word and sacrament)
  • community-based (with a very inclusive, mixed-age congregation)
  • family-friendly (with colourful processions to children’s groups and baby crèche)
  • Eucharistic (i.e. focused on celebrating Holy Communion every week)
  • musical (singing well-loved traditional hymns)
  • thoughtful (with preaching that is open-minded both to scripture and the contemporary world and aims to make connections between the two)
  • traditional (but with a friendly face, modern language and a contemporary feel)
