Services

Since the pandemic lockdowns ended, we have been running an experimental service pattern at St Peter’s and making changes from time to time to our pattern of worship. We expect to formalise our service pattern later in 2022 and the arrangements set out below are our current pattern of worship.

Every week except for the third weekend of the month:

9.30am All-age Worship

A shorter, more informal service for people of all ages, led by Rachel, Mark and the team. This service lasts approx 45 minutes and is a flexible mixture of worship styles, including activities for children as part of the service. The 9.30 service includes an act of Holy Communion together once a month. Please note there is no 9.30am service on the third Sunday of the month.

11am Morning Worship or Holy Communion

This is our more traditional, liturgical service and alternates Morning Worship on the second and fourth Sundays of the month and Holy Communion on the first and third Sundays. This service lasts around an hour.

Music is led by our choir and organist at the 11am service on three Sundays of the month, and by our music group on the fourth Sunday of each month.

Refreshments are served at 10.30am every week in the Church Lounge or in Church and are a great opportunity to meet together, whatever service you attend – all welcome to join us.

6.30pm Evening Services

These services consist of a Holy Communion celebration on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, which uses a Celtic liturgy and takes place more informally, in the round. The 1st Sunday evening of the month is Evening Reset, an informal service which includes extended sung worship, teaching, prayer, reflection time and often space for sharing testimony of how God has been at work among us. Please note there is no 6.30pm service on the third Sunday of the month.

Third Weekends of the month

Our service pattern is very different on the third weekend of every month!

Messy Church3.30pm third Sunday

Messy Church happens on the third Sunday afternoon of each month at 3.30pm in church and in the halls. Anyone is welcome to attend but it is especially suitable for families. The sessions include games and social time, activities and crafts to help us explore a theme, a celebration time together with stories, songs and more and a meal together before home time!

There is no 9.30am all age service on the third Sunday of the month.

Refresh Service5.30pm third SATURDAY

Refresh is an opportunity to come aside and worship God in an informal setting on a Saturday evening on the third Saturday of the month from 5.30pm. Similar to Evening Reset, the service lasts around 45 minutes and includes an extended worship time, a short teaching slot and space for personal reflection and prayer.

Refresh follows on from Music Cafe, our monthly music session where anyone is welcome to come along and join our musicians as we look at some songs we already know and learn some new ones together. Music Cafe takes place betwen 4 and 5pm on the third Saturday of each month and is followed by refrehments from 5-5.30pm, followed by Refresh at 5.30pm. You can come to the whole session, or just to Music Cafe or just to Refresh – even just to refreshments if you wish!

There is no 6.30pm all age service on the third Sunday of the month.

Daily Prayer

We follow an online pattern of Daily Prayer, live on our Facebook Page three times a week at 9am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We also publish a liturgy for every morning and evening of the week on our website each week.

Joint 10.30 services

From time to time we bring everyone together for special occasions such as major church festivals by holding a single joint all-age service in the morning at 10.30am. We also do this each week during the school summer holidays in late July and August. Our evening pattern continues unchanged on these weeks. We will also continue to support Shipley Christians Together’s United Services when these are scheduled for Sunday evenings.

Online worship

Unfortunately at the current time we are unable to regularly broadcast our worship on line due to technical difficulties. However, we are hoping to be able to offer online worship again later this year following an equipment upgrade – watch this page for details.
