Holy Commmunion

St Hildeburgh's main, Sunday service is usually Holy Communion at 10.00am. It is in modern langauge with hymns/worship songs and sermon. During the service our group for young people called 'Voyagers' meets. The service is followed by refreshments in the Church Centre (behind the church).

At 8.00am on Sundays and 10.00am on Wednesdays there is a short service of Holy Communion in the Lady Chapel of the church. Again, in modern language.

At 6.00pm on the last Sunday in the month, there is a sung service of Holy Communion that uses the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer.


Family Praise

At 10.00am on the Last Sunday in the month, we have a service of 'Family Praise'. This service is more informal, with lively worship songs and lots of activities for children it aims to cater for all ages. Followed by refreshments.


Evensong

At 6.00pm on Sundays (except the second and last Sundays in the month), we have a service of choral evensong that uses the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer.


Open Worship

At 4.00pm on the second Sunday in the month, we have a service called 'Open Worship'. This is a modern, less formal form of worship, taking place in the Cnurch Centre. Modern worship songs, discussion and refreshments throughout.


Healing Eucharist

At 10.00am every couple of months on a Sunday, there is a 'Healing Eucharist'. This is a service of Holy Communion with optional laying on of hands.


Mums & Tots Service

There is a well-attended, 'Mums & Tots' group (dads & carers too!) that meets in our Church Centre on Wednesday mornings during school term. A short, very relaxed and informal service is held for this group in the church on alternate weeks.


Messy Church

Every few months, on a Saturday afternoon, we have 'Messy Church'. This is a fun-packed afternoon of worship, songs, craft activities and games for children accompanied by adults. Followed by a hot meal for all.


Care Service

Every couple of months, on a week day afternoon, we have a special service for care home residents, their families and friends. It is held in the church and is followed by refreshments.


Morning Prayer

At 9.00am, most Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays, there is a short service of Morning Prayer held in the Lady Chapel of the church.
