CHURCH SERVICES

 You may be sure of a warm and friendly welcome at our services on:

Sunday mornings at 11.00 a.m.,

At South Street you can expect:

 

Easy access for wheelchairs and buggies; facilities for disabled people are good. There is a loop system, and audio recordings of services are available for housebound folk.

A special carpeted children’s area in the main church, where parents are welcome to sit with their children. There is a crèche and Sunday Club at morning service - visitors and newcomers are most welcome.  

Music in worship is led by one of our team of organists, using a piano as appropriate, and supplemented by instrumentalists on occasions.  Our own loose-leaf supplement includes an expanding range of songs and hymns and is used alongside Baptist Praise & Worship. During November 2012 new screens were installed and are now used to display the words of songs and hymns as well as providing visual support to other parts of the service.

Our worship is carefully structured, yet with variety and flexibility. There are regular Prayers for Healing Services, and occasional café-style informal services.  

Celebration of communion is usually on the first and third Sundays of each month.  Home communion is available on request.

Refreshments after morning services – a popular opportunity for friendships to develop. We are a Fairtrade Church, and Traidcraft goods are on sale each month at both South Street and Brampford Speke.

Occasional Bring and Share Lunches, enjoyed by the whole Church Family – visitors are welcome to come along and share.

Special “Celebrate Together” services for people with disabilities – we cooperate with other city churches to provide these informal café style late afternoon services.   

 

At Brampford Speke you will find:

A vibrant all-age part of the Church Family meeting in the homely, welcoming Chapel, close to the village school. During the summer, services are at 6.30 p.m. – in winter, at 3.30 p.m.

Leadership of services mainly by well qualified members of the Church Family, or by a member of the Anglican Raddon Group Team.

Good access for disabled people.

Children welcome – they often take part in services.

Music led by an organist, with hymns and songs from our loose-leaf supplement and from Baptist Praise & Worship.

Joint services on the first Sunday of each month, alternating with St Peter’s, Brampford Speke.

Open House at a home in the village from time to time before or after worship - depending on the time of year.

Regular Bible Study sessions at a home in the village.

Holiday Club in the school summer holidays.
