Engaging with God is central to what we are and do. Our "a church near you" page contains a calendar which shows the public services in the church.

Sanctuary lightsThe services usually last no more than an hour. Ours is a traditional way of worship, with traditional language and ceremonies — incense is used at all services except the 8:00 am and weekday masses — but also with a strong emphasis upon inclusiveness of age and gender. We are sorry to say that our heating system has failed and cannot be repaired quickly, so please wear warm clothes when coming to worship.

The doors are usually opened 15 minutes before Sunday services, and 5 minutes before weekday services. After the 9:00 Children's Mass and 10:30 High Mass we usually offer tea and coffee, so that those attending that service can get to know each other better.

Follow our this link to see a series of photos showing what happens at a typical High Mass.

You can obtain from our Downloads page leaflets explaining what happens at a typical low mass, mass for children, and high mass.

We rejoice in our inheritance with all the saints and we thank God for the blessings he has given us here. We are worth a visit. Come and taste and see how gracious the Lord is.
