Worship Services

Worship is the moment when we discover who God is and realise who we are. Worship can happen in all parts of life but we have a regular pattern of services to encourage it.

We have a mix of services across the churches and across the week including Communion, Morning prayer and less formal cafe-style services and discussion groups.

Sadly for us but excitingly for her, our vicar, Victoria, is moving on to pastures new at the end of September. Her last Sunday service in the benefice will be at St Mark’s, Ampfield at 09:30 on Sunday 26th September (which means September has a couple of changes to the usual service schedule of locations).

Services can be seen in our calendar and this week’s services can be seen on our home page. The pattern of regular services and informal gatherings is:
