Weekly Services

Visitors and children are welcome to all our services. However, some services are more suitable for children because they are shorter and have more contemporary music and more visual interest. These are indicated ‘*‘. All services are from the Church of England’s Common Worship (i.e. no ‘thees’ and ‘thous’) except for services marked ‘BCP’ which are from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.

Each of our churches has a different style of worship.

All Saints, Frindsbury

  • 8:00am – Holy Communion comrpises a small but friendly congregation, there is a slightly shorter sermon and no hymns.
  • 10:30am – Parish Communion varies according to the Church season. There is an organ and All Saints Singers help lead our worship with simple sung responses. We have a mixture of traditional and contemporary hymns (Townend / Getty).
  • 10:30am – All-Age Worship is designed for everybody. The Cubs and Scouts present standards and the talk is illustrated, usually with willing volunteers. The music is band-led and contemporary in style.
  • 10:30am – Morning Worship on the fourth Sunday of the month varies in format. The music is band-led and contemporary in style. The sermon is often interactive.

St Philip & St James, Upnor

  • 9:00am – Holy Communion and Morning Prayer follow the same liturgy as at All Saints but the hymns are more traditional and it is a more formal setting.

Bishop Gundulph, Chattenden

  • 8:30am – A prayer breakfast once a month focuses on praying for the mission of the parish.
