Weekly Services

Visitors and children are welcome to all our services. We offer a wide range of worship from quiet, traditional communion services to contemporary morning worship with band. This means the pattern can be a little confusing for newcomers, although you will be welcome whenever you choose to come.

As a parish, we admit baptised children to communion prior to confirmation. If your family are interested in this, please contact us as we have a short teaching course to prepare parents and children. During the 10.30am service at All Saints, when it is not an all-age service, we offer children’s teaching in the vestry. The 10.30am service at All Saints on the second and fourth Sundays of the month has more contemporary music. These are indicated ‘*‘. Services marked ‘BCP’ are from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. On the fifth Sunday of the month at All Saints we celebrate communion in an all-age service.

All Saints, Frindsbury

  • 8:00am – Holy Communion (BCP) comprises a small but friendly congregation, there is a slightly shorter sermon and no hymns.
  • 10:30am – Parish Communion  organ and All Saints Singers help lead our worship. We have a mixture of traditional and contemporary hymns / choruses.
  • 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 – Fourth Sunday Worship  varies in format. The music is band-led and contemporary in style. The sermon is often interactive.
  • 10.30am – All Age Communion. A shorter communion service with band and organ. The address is illustrated / 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. It is a more formal setting than All Saints.
  • 4.00pm – Up4it (second Saturday of the month) a very relaxed time for family worship with crafts and light refreshments.
