At 9.30 a.m. on most Sundays we meet for a service of Holy Communion in modern language. The hymns usually come from the "Ancient & Modern" hymn book (2013); there is a sung setting of the Gloria which is often David Thorne's Mass of St Thomas; the vicar is robed; and there is also a robed choir, which sometimes sings an anthem. Coffee, tea, and biscuits (and often very delicious cakes) are served at the back of Church after the service.
On the first Sunday of each month our 9.30 a.m. service is aimed at families and children. This is usually quite lively with activities and modern songs provided by our worship group, "Spirit of Harmony". It is followed by coffee as usual and, for those who wish to stay, a short, quiet Eucharist at 11 a.m.
On the fourth Sunday of each month, as well as our normal 9.30 a.m. service, we have a service at 8 a.m. This is a quiet Eucharist (Holy Communion) at the main altar in the Nave. This service uses traditional language from the Book of Common Prayer - the "Order 2" form of service.
Every Wednesday we have a service at 9.30 a.m. This is a quiet Eucharist (Holy Communion) at the main altar in the Nave. This service uses modern language.
Children are always welcome - we have a comfortable area available for small children, and would love slightly older children to join in and help with taking collections, reading or being part of the music group.
The service at Seamer may be a small scale celebration of the eucharist with two or three unaccompanied hymns. Please check the calendar for details.

Our services are in a relaxed formal style: the layout of the building naturally creates a more informal atmosphere than you would find in many churches. Throughout the year our readings come from the authorised cycle of readings (the "Lectionary").
