This has been the usual pattern of our services in the benefice but as we are currently in an interregnum, looking for a

new priest, things may vary a little but the types of service we celebrate remain the same


Each Sunday there is a main service. Everyone is warmly invited to come and share in this. It is either:

Sunday Eucharist:

A communion service with hymns and a sermon.


Family Eucharist:

The same thing but in modern language, and with a special talk for children.


Matins or Evensong:

Traditional morning or evening prayer from the Book of Common Prayer, with prayers sermon

and hymns.

Holy Communion:

A short and quiet traditional communion service from the  Book of Common Prayer

(or Common Worship at Markbeech); no music and a very short sermon.

Family Service:

Relaxed and cheerful - and short! For all ages but with a special emphasis on children.

Evening service:

This service at Four Elm is different every month - watch out for the publicity.

Sung Eucharist:

A formal and traditional service to provide an alternative to the Family Eucharist on the fourth

Sunday in the month.
