We are still being cautious in our approach to the pandemic therefore,

  • Only the bread will be shared at the communion.
  • Hand sanitiser will continue to be available and we would ask that you use it both on coming into church and leaving.
  • We would encourage you to sit well spread out in church, and you may be asked to sit in a particular seat to protect someone who is clinically vulnerable to Covid.

Like many churches, we have been delighted with the success of our online services during the pandemic and will be looking to develop this aspect of our church life in the future. Currently we are offering a Zoom service on the 1st Sunday of each month at 10am but please check the latest information above for any changes.


The church office is open, and if you want practical or prayerful support, please either email office@bcd-churches.co.uk or telephone (01489) 782445.

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. Currently this is bread only owing to Coronavirus restrictions.

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.

Service at Durley School. Communion* Service for the adults in the hall and lots of fun activities for the children in one of the classrooms. Do come and join us!

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.

Family Service This is a more informal all age 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.

United Parish Communion. This is the same as the Parish Communion where we all join together and takes place in one of our 3 churches. Check the news sheet for where the service is.

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

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