Service Times and Themes

Services are usually held in St Paul's Church at 10:30am on Sundays. Variations to this routine occur occasionally so we publish our services diary here to give more precise information. The services shown are those that we expect to take place during the next month.

Whenever a fifth Sunday falls within the month, our congregation joins with those of the other churches in our Mission Community for a service of united worship. The church in which this service is held is selected on a rotational basis.

Service Themes

Our services, like those organised in other churches, usually have a theme associated with them and the chosen theme is inspired often by the current date in the Christian calendar. Easter and Christmas are the two most notable dates in the Christian calendar but there are many more which we celebrate at the appropriate time. In the article below, we explain briefly the main theme that is featured in our listed services in order to help worshippers unfamiliar with Anglican services to better understand the meaning behind each one.

Service Themes

Ordinary Time

On Trinity Sunday, the week after Pentecost, we celebrated the three keys aspects of our Christian faith, being God as the Father, God as the Son (Jesus) and as The Holy Spirit. This date also marked the start of what we refer to in the church as "Ordinary Time". With Easter having officially ended with the marking of Pentecost, there are no major festivals in the Christian calendar until All Saints' Day at the beginning of November. Sundays until then are denoted according to the number of weeks since Trinity Sunday.
