Services

We join in worship every Sunday at 2.30pm with a Eucharist service. Our choir sing every first and third Sunday of the month. If there is a fifth Sunday, we hold a traditional Evensong (including a sung psalm, the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis, responses, an anthem and hymns.)

1st Sunday, Choral Eucharist
2nd Sunday Sung Eucharist with hymns
3rd Sunday Choral Eucharist
4th Sunday Sung Eucharist and Children’s Church
5th Sunday Choral Evensong

We offer two choral services a month, enjoying traditional Anglican hymns supported by our robed choir. As well as lectionary readings there is a sung psalm and a sung Eucharist setting. Our choir also sings an anthem and the service ends with an organ voluntary.

Every second Sunday of the month we hold a more traditional sung Eucharist. This Holy Communion service uses a congregational communion setting and we enjoy traditional Anglican hymns and lectionary readings.

On the fourth Sunday of the month an intimate Said Eucharist Service offers stillness and quiet. It is valued for its longer moments of prayer and reflection and the opportunity to worship in an historic Anglican way.

If there is a fifth Sunday, our choir is supported by The Anglican Singers for a traditional Choral Evensong. Expect to hear a sung psalm, the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis as well as an anthem. Choral Evensong is very popular in The Netherland and we often find we have additional visitors for this service.

 

Midweek Prayer and Discussion

Service of Compline and Prayers for Healing.  This is held once a month in the evening. It is a short meditative service when the prayer list is updated and each person on the list is mentioned during the intercessions.

Discussion Groups.  In Advent and Lent there is a Discussion Group to which everyone is invited for one or all sessions.
