The Sung Eucharist on Sunday mornings is probably the most distinctive of St. Mary’s celebrations of Holy Communion, combining a rich choral tradition with the wonderful text of the Book of Common Prayer. It attracts an average congregation of around 90 people, from a wide age range and equally diverse backgrounds. Services are usually finished by noon.
Sunday and Wednesday Evensong services are, perhaps, the jewel in the Anglican crown: the choir leads us in a contemplative, end-of-day way of giving respite and inspiration during our busy modern lives. The congregation is usually small, fitting into the Chancel, and the service is usually completed in around 45 minutes.
Wednesday and Thursday Holy Communion services are spoken services in which scripture takes the centre stage. The congregation is usually small and the services therefore intimate; they are a chance to have a very personal experience of the way in which Christ becomes present to his church.
