Where there is a 5th Sunday in the month, we come together to worship as a Benefice in one of our churches.  Please check our website calendar for further details.

Sung Eucharist

This is a service of Holy Communion using the modern service called ‘Common Worship’.

The service is led by the clergy and supported by the choir . The service moves from opening praise through confession and then a focus on the Bible.  There are two bible readings and there is a sermon just before the mid-point of the service.  After that prayers are led and then we prepare ourselves to receive bread and wine around the Lord’s Table. The service draws to a close with a hymn and the Blessing.

Refreshments are available after the service for those who wish to share a coffee and have a chat with friends.

Sunday School

Children attend the Sunday School at Harpsden on 1st and 3rd Sundays. They meet in the vestry.

After the communion the children re-join their parents in the church and as the service draws to a close as we reflect with the children on what they have learnt, linking it into the theme of the service.
