Which Service is for you? 
 
Holy Communion, known also as ‘The Eucharist’, ‘The Lord’s Supper’ or ‘Mass’ is a service of readings and prayers that lead up to a symbolic sharing of bread and wine in remembrance of Jesus’ Last Supper. 
In addition Holy Communion from Common Worship includes hymns and some sung responses. All services include a sermon or talk or other narrati azsve lasting between 5 and 15 minutes.  
 
Morning Worship is a straightforward easy to follow service lasting about 45min. The form of the service follows Common Worship and includes hymns and a sermon.  
It may be led by a Licensed Lay Minister (Reader).
