On Sundays:

8.00am Low Mass    (‘low’ means ‘simple’ and without much ceremony) The 1662 Book of Common Prayer is used for this service.

10.00am Sung Mass   (The main service of the week, it includes hymns and songs, a sermon about the Bible readings, the opportunity to receive Holy Communion, and with refreshments served afterwards)

5.00pm Evening Prayer ( A quiet service which includes a sermon or reflection )  or MEET UP @ 5. FROM JUNE 11th for seven weeks Evening Prayer will be replaced by Meet Up@5 in the vicarage next to the church.

 

 

 

and during the week…

Christ the Good ShepherdThe tradition of daily prayer goes back to the earliest Christian communities and it is our belief that Jesus honours his promise, “Where two or three are gathered I am in the midst”

At Christ Church there are at least two opportunities for corporate prayer each day (except Monday which is the parish staff rest day)

Both services last about 30 minutes.

The Eucharist (also known as Holy Communion or the Mass) is offered each day, and twice on Wednesday and Friday. Each Mass includes bible readings and a short reflection on them and the opportunity to receive Holy Communion.

The ministry of laying on of hands and / or anointing is available after any mass. Simply approach the priest who is celebrating.

Each day at 6 p.m. Evening Prayer is said and the prayer requests left in the prayer box near the icon of the Annunciation in the Lady chapel are prayed. This service lasts around 20 minutes.
