At St Mary’s Church we worship in a wide a range of styles. Sunday Morning Services are at 9-00am (said) and 10-30am (sung) every week. At every 10-30am Service, a play room for young children is provided.
On the 1st Sunday in the Month at 9am we worship together at Cockayne Hatley Church using the Book of Common Prayer 1662 Holy Communion service (said).
Music and singing and is an important part of the worship tradition with us at St Mary’s
FAMILY SERVICE on the 1st Sunday in the Month at 10-30am is an all age worship mixing formal and informal designed to include everyone.
2nd Sunday in the Month is “Choral Communion” 10-30am Choral Communion (Common Worship Order 1). A full sung service of Holy Communion with traditional hymns and anthems sung by our wonderful choir under the leadership of our husband and wife choirmaster and organist, David and Judith Barker.
3rd Sunday of the Month at 10-30 is “St Mary’s Shorter Communion Service”: a simpler, guided service of Holy Communion lasting less than an hour. It may be particularly helpful to those new to church or unsure of church practices and traditions. Children are encouraged to take part in this service.
