Morning and Evening Prayer

Morning and Evening Prayer forms the spiritual backbone of the church; a mixture of prayers and scriptural readings, they were the principal Church of England service from the 17th to the 20th century. Even now, it is still the principal service in some churches and Cathedrals.

All ‘Clerks in Holy Orders’ (Bishops, Priests and Deacons) are obliged to recite Morning and Evening prayer daily, unless they are stopped by “sickness or some other urgent cause”. A few people also gather with Fr. Richard to recite Morning and Evening Prayer together, twice daily. All are welcome.

Morning Prayer is said at 9am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

Evening Prayer is said at 6pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and at 5pm on Saturday evenings.

Every Sunday we have an evening service.This begins at 6.30pm. It is usually Sung Evensong from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, however, we do occasionally hold Veneration, Benediction or Healing Services.

Please see the Parish Magazine for more information.
