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

Holy Trinity

The Holy Spirit is the third element in what the Church refers to as the Holy Trinity of the "Father, Son and Holy Spirit".

The Bible teaches us that God (as "The Father") created life, both physical and spiritual, and His works over many hundreds of years are documented in the Old Testament. In the New Testament, The Bible relates how God sent his son, Jesus Christ, to live on earth and to show us that freedom from sin may be obtained through repentance and baptism. After Christ died and rose again, God sent the Holy Spirit to act as a kind of "helper" to those who would follow Christ's teachings.

On Trinity Sunday, we celebrate these three keys aspects of our Christian faith. This date also marks 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 now no major festivals in the Christian calendar until All Saints' Day at the beginning of November. Sundays until then are now denoted according to the number of weeks since Trinity Sunday.

On July 22nd, the feast day of Mary Magdalene is celebrated. Mary Magdalene was one of Jesus' most celebrated disciples, and the most important female disciple in the movement of Jesus. Jesus cleansed her of "seven demons", (Luke 8:2) (Mark 16:9) sometimes interpreted as referring to complex illnesses. She became Jesus' close friend and most prominent during his last days, being present at the cross after the male disciples (excepting John the Beloved) had fled, and at his burial. She was the first person to see Jesus after his Resurrection, according to both John 20 and Mark 16:9. Mary Magdalene is considered by the Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, and Lutheran churches to be a saint.
