New Service Rota for 2016
Following on from the recent Benefice survey regarding Church Services, alongside an attempt to bring about a degree of continuity with the church services; i.e. the same time each month in the same church, (which is something that is widely recommended as being favoured by church goers) a six month trial is to be put into effect as from the start of the New Year.
Little Bealings will hold an 8am Holy Communion (said) each 1st Sunday, 10am Holy Communion (sung) each 3rd Sunday, with a 4pm Messy Church service for younger members (but be assured any age welcome!) every 4th Sunday.
Great Bealings will hold an 8am Holy Communion (said) each 2nd Sunday, 10am Holy Communion (sung) each 1st Sunday.
Playford will hold a Family Communion on the 2nd Sunday, and a Holy Communion (sung) each 4th Sunday; please note that both of these will commence at the earlier time of 9am.
Culpho will continue with their 3pm evensong on the 3rd Sunday, but their monthly Wednesday 9.30am said Communion is moving to the 3rd Wednesday of the month.
Where there are five Sundays in the month a Benefice Songs of Praise will alternate between LB/GB/Playford.
Other services outside the ‘norm’ such as Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Compline…….will be advertised and shared amongst the 4 churches.
I welcome any thoughts/observations/comments/complaints!! etc.
Here is a schedule of our services.
