Church Services at St. Clement's

Our regular Church Services for both Sunday and mid-week are as follows:

Sunday Services

Holy Communion (8:00am):

This is a said service from the Book of Common Prayer (1928). It is a quiet and reflective service that lasts about 40 minutes

Sir Roger Manwood's School Boarders' service (9:30am):

The boarders from our local grammar school attend the church for their own 30 minute service, in term time.

The Parish Eucharist (10:30am):

It is in modern language taken from the Church of England's Common Worship. We sing hymns and parts of the service are led by our choir, who usually sing an anthem while the people receive communion. There is an address during the service. The service usually lasts just over an hour, and is followed by coffee in the church to which all are invited.

Evensong and Sermon (6:30pm):

This service is sung (although generally without a choir) and follows the traditional Book of Common Prayer. There is a short address and the service lasts about an hour.

Midweek Services:

Tuesdays (9:00am): Morning Prayer (Common Worship)

Wednesdays (10:00am): Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer)

Thursdays (9:00am): Morning Prayer (Common Worship)

Other Services:

For other Services and Events please look at this Website and the Notices in the Church Porch.

Ministry of Prayer

Within the church is an intercession board for anyone to leave requests for prayers to be said and there is the opportunity to light a votive candle. 'Prayer Force' coordinates people's praying for issues of concern.
