Sundays at East Bridgford
Serving the main centre of population for the Fosse Group, St Peter’s, East Bridgford offers the greatest number of services each month.
The most important of the services is our Sung Eucharist with sermon on Sunday at 9.15am, with robed choir, and using contemporary language (Common Worship Order One). On the third Sunday of the month, this is a shorter, less formal service (about 50 minutes), with a music group, and is particularly attractive to children and young families.
On the first and third Sundays at 8am we celebrate Holy Communion, using the Book of Common Prayer. On the second and fourth Sundays at 6.30pm we have traditional Prayer Book Evensong with a sermon.
On the first Sunday of each month, at 4pm, we hold a relaxed and informal afternoon service which lasts around 40/45 minutes and includes three or four hymns or songs both familiar and new, some prayers, a reading from the Bible and a talk or discussion.
This monthly service is part of our developing programme which we hope will appeal both to regular churchgoers and also to those of you, young and not so young, who are exploring the Christian faith for the first time or thinking about reconnecting with the church and its life.
Storyteller takes place at 10.30am on the second Sunday of the month It is an experience for anyone – children and grown-ups alike – offering a gentle introduction to the church and the Christian faith.
Sundays elsewhere in the Fosse Group
Once a month on Sunday at 11am in each of the other four churches in the Fosse Group there is a celebration of Holy Communion, according to the following pattern:
St Wilfrid’s, Screveton
St Helen’s, Kneeton
(Book of Common Prayer)
St Mary’s, Car Colston
St Augustine’s, Flintham
*At St Augustine’s, Flintham ONLY, there is, every other month at 11am, a service of Morning Worship, instead of Holy Communion.
On the third Sunday at 6.00pm there is traditional Prayer Book Evensong with a sermon at St Helen’s, Kneeton.
If there are five Sundays in the month there is just one service in the Fosse Group, with the five churches taking it in turn to hold a Group Eucharist at 11am.
