Pattern of Service
The main service on Sunday is the 10am Parish Mass. This is a Common Worship service celebrated with catholic ceremonial including vestments, bells, incense and a team of servers. There is a large choir led by a Director of Music. On the first Sunday of the month the service is accompanied by the junior choir and has a more informal feel to it.
The other Sunday service is Evening Prayer at 6pm. This always follows the Book of Common Prayer. On the first two Sundays of the month the service is held jointly with our neighbouring parish, All Saints’. On the first Sunday of the month this is a full Choral Evensong held at St Mary’s. On the second Sunday we join All Saints’ for a Sung Evensong. On the other Sundays the service is said.
At present there is only one regular weekday Mass, held on Tuesday morning. For services on weekdays, festivals and Holy Days, see the weekly Bulletin.
