Service types

CW Holy Communion. This is a service where bread and wine is shared following the Common Worship order of service using modern language. There are no hymns or music at this service, nor childrens’ activities.

BCP Holy Communion. This is similar to the CW Holy Communion but the words used are the traditional ones from the Book of Common Prayer.

Family Service. This is a more informal service with no set words to follow and there are opportunities for children to participate and a music group or piano leading the songs or hymns. Coffee and biscuits are served afterwards.

Parish Communion. This is a service where bread and wine is shared and we follow the Common Worship order of service with hymns and music which includes a choir in Botley. There are usually groups for children to attend during the service. The service can be followed by a Baptism (Christening) service but is not part of the service itself. Coffee and biscuits are served afterwards.

Matins. This follows the traditional service of Matins from the Book of Common Prayer.

United Parish Communion. This is the same as the Parish Communion and takes place in one of our 3 churches.

Fourth@Four. This is contemporary style worship with a praise band and no formal order of service to follow.

Choral Evensong. This is the traditional service from the Book of Common Prayer with music led by All Saints’ Choir.

Taize. This is a reflective service from the community of Taize in France with candles and simple chants for all to join in with.

Evensong. This follows the same service as Choral Evensong with hymns and sung psalms but without the choir.
