What happens in a service

The Eucharist: A Eucharist is a service where Christians celebrate the last meal that Jesus had with his disciples before being tried and crucified. Many Christians feel it is the most important service of the week.

It includes songs of praise, prayer, as well as readings from the bible, a short talk (sermon) of about ten minutes that nearly always draws its subject from the readings. The second part of the service is given over to the sharing of the bread and wine. The whole service lasts about an hour and all are welcome. Many of these Eucharist services have light refreshments served afterwards where people can meet and talk together.

The service uses Common Worship as distinct from Book of Common Prayer(BCP). Common Worship uses modern language and an interactive responsive structure.

BCP Eucharists or Holy Communion use more traditional language.

Morning Prayer
Morning Prayer is a short period of spoken prayer to start the day. It includes a Psalm and readings from the bible, the prayers are led but there is also ample opportunity for individuals to offer their own prayer either aloud or inwardly. The service lasts about 20 minutes.

All Age services
All Age services are designed to encourage all ages to contribute to the whole pattern of the service. The service uses modern language and lasts about 45 minutes.

Evensong and Matins
Evensong and Matins are formal periods of prayer for the morning and the evening. They use BCP for their structure and the language is from the 17th century.

There are readings from the bible and a short talk (a sermon of no more than 10 minutes), as well as hymns, both Matins and Evensong include canticles and psalms sung by the congregation.  The service lasts about 45 minutes.

Regular midweek services

There is a midweek Eucharist each month at 10.30am in Clifden Close Community Rooms in Arrington.
Tea and coffee is provided after the service.


Currently we have no Sunday School provision, although we welcome children to all our services, and a children’s bulletin is always provided. “Let’s Worship” in Orwell and “Worship Together” in Barrington are ‘All Age’ services with activities for children.
