We have a range of Sunday services to which everyone is welcome
It is a great joy to be back in church for our services. We wish to keep everyone as safe as possible, and, as we must still adhere to social distancing, numbers in church have to be limited.
You may prefer to attend the 8.00am said service. If attending the 10.00am Sung Eucharist please help us by arriving fifteen minutes before the service begins; go straight to your seat and sit as close to the tick as possible. (Shuffling up the pew compromises the distances which have been measured. Remember to think front and behind as well as alongside). Please wear your mask at all times while inside the church.
We understand that you are eager to say hello to friends, especially when you haven't seen them for so long, but please, don't mingle inside the church; we urge you to wait until you get outside.
Thank you for helping us to help everyone. Risk assessments relating to the pandemic are available on request from the church office.

This is a said communion service according to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer lasting about 35 minutes. It is quiet and contemplative.

This is a full, sung communion service attended by up to 200 people in the congregation every week. The service, from Common Worship, includes a sermon and cathedral-standard singing with St Alfege Church Choir. Many volunteers are involved in welcoming, reading and serving. This service lasts about an hour and ten minutes and uses traditional language on most Sundays.
We have an vibrant Children's Church with teaching and worshipping in the hall.
Refreshments are offered in the hall after the service and all are welcome.
Choral Evensong - This is not currently taking place during the pandemic.
Join us for Choral Evensong on the last Sunday of every month at 6.30pm (excluding August) and lasts for about an hour.
Enjoy the beauty of language and music in cathedral-style evensong according to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer with St Alfege Choir led by Director of Music, Stephen Dagg, and Organist Sam Barber.
Each month there will be a guest speaker who will give a short poetry talk about an individual poet or poem. See our 'Believing in poetry' series.
