On Sunday evenings we will be running a range of services, varying from Choral Evensong and Youth Eucharists, to Healing services and Jazz Vespers. These will all take place at Christ Church at 6pm (unless otherwise advertised). Please consult our parish calendar to see what’s on.
Our robed choir come together to guide us through a traditional sung service from the Book of Common Prayer. We sing psalms, canticles and hymns and enjoy peace and contemplation before the start of the week.
Sung Evensong with Solemn Benediction
At this traditional service complete with incense and hymns of devotion we reflect on the glory of the Lord.
Junior Choral Evensong – 5pm
(School term time only – please see parish calendar for dates and details.)
This service is especially designed for children aged 7+ and their families and carers but everybody is welcome. Our fantastic junior choir lead us, while all children and young people are welcome to join the rehearsals, which start at 4pm. The service itself lasting s for around 35 minutes and contains a range of age-appropriate readings, a thought for the week and music. Who knew that Evensong could be such fun?
Youth Eucharist – 530pm
Ideal for children aged 10+, this informal, accessible short Eucharistic service takes place once a month every fourth Sunday. We will offer short themed discussions on subjects chosen by our Youth Council and will use music (from pop to rap) and film. Afterwards there will be refreshments and a chance to catch up with friends.
A Service of Healing and Prayer
This simple service draws on contemplative music that spans ages and continents. Anointing and individual prayer is offered by a highly experienced and professionally trained team of ministers. Come and surround yourself in the peace of healing prayer.
Our highly talented parish jazz group guides us through the incomparable journey towards peace that is Vespers. With readings to make you reflect, psalms to ground you and music to take you through both the highs and the lows of the liturgy, it makes for a memorable service.
