The calendar below gives the public events and services happening in the two churches. Events in purple are for St Matthew’s and those in green are for St Cross. Click on an event in the calendar to see more information.
Our usual Sunday pattern is this:
8:00AM Holy Communion at St Matthew’s
10:30AM – services at St Cross and at St Matthew’s.
St Cross usually has:
- All-age Worship on the first Sunday of each month;
- Holy Communion on the second and fourth Sundays;
- Morning Prayer on the third Sunday.
St Matthew’s usually has:
- Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month;
- Morning Prayer on the second and fourth Sundays;
- All-age Worship on the third Sunday.
Where there is a fifth Sunday in the month, the two congregations will unite for a joint service in one of the churches. Please see the magazine or weekly notices for details.
4:30PM Book of Common Prayer Evensong at St Matthew’s
This service usually happens on the first and third Sundays of the month. Please note: from January to March 2016 the Church Council has decided to move the time of the service forward, from 6:30PM to 4:30PM. This will then be reviewed to see if it helps having an earlier start.
Where there is a fifth Sunday in the month, there is usually a Communion service in this slot.
St Matthew’s has a weekly communion service on Thursdays, starting at 10:30AM. This is usually followed by coffee in church.
St Cross has a monthly communion service at 10:30AM on the first Wednesday of each month. This is usually followed by coffee in church.
The information above is given in good faith but sometimes things change. Please see our monthly magazine and weekly notices for more up to date information or ring the vicarage (01925) 730276.
