What happens at Night Service

Night Service can follow a variety of styles of worship, with a common feature of each service being an extended time of contemplative silence - usually 10 minutes.

Normally the first Sunday of each month is a celebration of Holy Communion.  At other times we use Taizé, Celtic/Iona and Sung Compline formats as well as occasional themed services. Use the list below to find out more about each style of service.

Some 3 or 4 times a year we precede a Night Service with a Bring and Share meal.
