Worship

St Paul's, Birkenshaw

We hold a Holy Communion service at St Paul's every Sunday at 10.30am. The liturgy for our service is from Common Worship and our music includes a blend of traditional hymns and worship songs.

On the third Sunday of the month we hold a Family Service with music and teaching suitable for every age group. 

On all other Sundays we have KfC (our Sunday School for 3-14's)which meets in the Sunday school room in church at 10.30am. We also  always have an activity table in church for children and an area for babies and toddlers too so any parent can come with a small child and not worry about noise.

A Prayer Space is available at all these services where anyone can come and be quiet, write a prayer card, light a candle or have someone pray for them or a loved one during the communion or after the service.

After the service everyone is warmly invited to stay for refreshments.
