Types of Services 

To find the right service for you please see descriptions below 

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is a more formal service, with readings and prayers and hymns. We give thanks over bread and wine which remind us of the Last Supper which Jesus shared with His disciples the night before He died. As we do we are celebrating with other Christians (seen and unseen) and in the presence of the risen Jesus Himself.

Family Service

Our Family services are an all-age service lasting about 45 minutes. Some of the music, and prayers are aimed at a younger congregation. Baptisms are usually held in these services. 

Family Communion

Family Communion services are held when there are families and children present. They aim to be accessible to people unfamiliar with communion, or formal church services. They are usually held for baptisms and at festivals, such as Christmas and Easter.

Morning Praise

Morning Praise is a service of readings, prayers and hymns with a short talk, & is usually lay-led.

Evening Prayer

Evening Prayer from Common Worship is a said service that includes liturgy, readings & prayer.

Taizé on the Torridge

Our churches meet on the third Sunday of every month at All Saints Chapel, Instow at 6pm in the summer (4pm in winter). They enjoy a contemplative candlelit Taizé service that lasts for approximately an hour. The worship begins with prayer and a scripture reading. After a reflective response there is a time of silence. Repetitive chants from the Taizé community are central to the worship, helping everyone to focus upon God and rest in his presence. It is a very peaceful form of worship.

Please note that our services may be lead by one of our Ministry Team. For more information on our team please click here
