HOLY COMMUNION (FAMILY SERVICE)

Led by The Bishop of Buckingham, Rt. Revd. Dr. Alan Wilson

 

 


Family Communion

This takes place on the first Sunday of the month throughout the year. It's a wonderful opportunity for children and their families to come together for the whole service. These acts of worship are genuinely fun and engaging for children of all ages. The sermon is much shorter and includes congregation participation! 

EVERYONE WELCOME!

 


Après worship!

Fairtrade refreshments are served after each act of worship and, if you are new to the church, we

would like to take that opportunity to get to know you better.

 

At special times of the year, for example during Lent, other acts of worship will take place.
