NEW PATTERN OF WORSHIP COMMENCES SUNDAY 1 DECEMBER
The following pattern of services will be adopted from the beginning of December:
9.30AM WEEK 1 NO SERVICE
MARTIN WEEK 2* 8.00AM* BCP COMMUNION
WEEK 3 MORNING WORSHIP
WEEK 4 HOLY COMMUNION
11.00AM WEEK 1 PARISH COMMUNION
SALWARPE WEEK 2 MORNING WORSHIP
WEEK 3 HOLY COMMUNION
WEEK 4 MORNING WORSHIP
11.00AM 5TH SUNDAY QUARTERLY COMBINED
MARTIN/SALWARPE PARISH COMMUNION
N.B. It is intended that whenever possible the BCP Communion service at Martin on the 2nd Sunday of the month will be held at 9.30am in line with the other services there. However, this very much depends on clergy cover being available, so the default time has been set at 8am. Please therefore check the Service Page each month for the time of this particular service.
It can be seen from the table that the services at Martin and Salwarpe have not changed ONLY THE TIMES OF THE SERVICES ARE DIFFERENT. It should be easier to remember now that services at Martin start at 9.30am (albeit with occasional exceptions) and morning services at Salwarpe will always commence at 11am.
On a 5th Sunday we have a combined Parish Communion service—check the service page for details.
There will also be other seasonal services around Christmas, Lent and Easter which may differ from the normal pattern. These will always be listed under the services for the month.
