Church Services Explained

Holy Communion Common Worship

What is It? It is an hour long service at which we celebrate Holy Communion by

sharing bread and wine. We follow the modern words in this service and all responses

during the service are spoken. There are songs and the music is provided by guitars;

the organ or sometimes recorded backing tracks. The song words are generally on a

projected screen, and you will be given a service booklet at the door. In between the

songs there will be readings from the Bible; prayers and a talk of 10-15 minutes.

Most attendees will then go up to the front, where the priest will give everyone a

piece of bread, or a wafer, and a sip of wine. You are welcome to stay in your pew

if you want to. If you want to go forward for a blessing, just take a book in your

hands and bow your head as the priest approaches. If you have mobility difficulties

the priest can come to you. There is sometimes a collection when a bag will be

passed along each pew. No one will mind at all if you just pass it on. If there is

no collection bag, there will be a plate by the door should you want to make a

donation.

As the numbers are generally around 25, we sit in the pews wherever we feel

comfortable. There is normally tea and coffee served at the end of the service if you

want to stay and chat.

When is it? This service is currently at 10am on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each

month. It will rotate around all our 6 of our churches. 

Holy Communion Book of Common Prayer

What is It? This is a short service lasting about 30 minutes with no singing at which

we celebrate Holy Communion by sharing bread and wine. We follow the traditional

words from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. There will be readings from the Bible,

prayers and a short (5-10miuteses) talk. Then most attendees will go to the front,

where the priest gives out a piece of bread or a wafer and a sip of wine. As the

numbers are generally under 15, we often sit it the choir stalls or the front few pews.

You are welcome to sit anywhere that you feel comfortable, and you do not need to

go to the front unless you want to. If you want to go up just for a blessing and not

take the bread and wine, simply take a book in your hands and bow your head as the

priest approaches. If you have mobility difficulties the priest will come to you.

There is no collection, just a plate by the door should you want to make a donation.

When is it?  This is currently at 8am on the 3rd Sunday of each month. It rotates

around Badgworth, Biddisham, Compton Bishop, Christon and Loxton. Click HERE to

Agape Meal

What is It? It is a simple service with no singing at which we remember the last

supper which Jesus shared with his disciples before he died. We follow a simple sheet,

have a reading from the Bible, say prayers and there is a very short talk. We then

share a piece of bread around the circle. As the numbers are generally under 15, we

sit around a table, rather than in the pews. Although this could sound very intimate

there is no pressure to say anything and if you wanted to sit outside the circle and

just listen, no one will be bothered. It usually lasts about 30 minutes.

There is no collection, just a plate at the door should you want to make a donation.

When is it? This service is currently at 9am in Weare Church on the 1st Sunday of

each month.

during the service are spoken. Music is provided by guitars or sometimes recorded

backing tracks. The song words are generally on a projected screen, or you may be

given a service booklet at the door. In between the songs there will be readings from

the Bible or a story; interactive prayers and a talk of 10-15 minutes. There is no

bread and wine. There will be a plate by the door if you want to make a donation.

comfortable. Children might be invited to go up nearer the front to hear or see better
