9:30AM On the 'Third Sunday' of every month
An informal relaxed service for all ages, usually held in the Hall (but online during the lockdown!). Once a month, at 9:30 on the 'Third Sunday', we set out the chairs and beanbags in the Hall so there's plenty of room for the kids to run around if they need to!
Lots of activities for all ages (quiet reflection and teaching for those who want, as well as arts and crafts and 'stuff'!)
Our main Sunday service
9:30AM Every Sunday
Our main service celebrates Communion in contemporary language ('Common Worship'), and starts at 9.30. There are always activities for children. For an experiment, we are starting to run TWO 'Main Services' (at 9:30 AND at 11:00) - if this seems to meet a need, we shall continue after Christmas!
On the Third Sunday of each month we follow a modern, informal style of worship (our "Switch" service), often in the Hall where there is more room to experiment and run around. Then there is a simple service of Communion with hymns at 11:00 …..
On the Fifth Sunday of the month we usually have 'Café Style' Communion, starting with coffee and pastries, and sharing bread and wine around small tables
11:00AM Second Sunday of each month
An all age interactive worship service with ‘live music’ which used to happen in the afternoons, but is now an 11:00 morning service! See our Facebook page for what’s happening this month.
11:00AM Every First Sunday of the month
Our new informal all-age worship service - modern worship songs and a relaxed atmosphere. Now happening online during the Lockdown - but we look forward to you coming for coffee in the Hall from 10:30 when that's all over!
11 o'clock Communion
11:00AM Monthly, 3rd Sunday of each month
On the Third Sunday of each month there is a later short service of communion, with music, using the Common Worship format - but some months this does not happen: check the News page! Especially at present with Remembrance, Christmas etc.
Midweek Morning Communion
A short said service of Communion - a friendly mid-week devotional and social top-up. This now starts at 10:30 rather than 9:30 as this seems to make it easier to come and join in. During the COVID period, we are just meeting online for a short service of prayer and then a chat with friends ... using Zoom! The link is on our 'Access' page - www.spcbalsall.church/service/
Young People's Activity: The Rock @ St Peter's
3:30PM Weekly in Termtime
The Rock at St Peter's is a youth club for Years 5 & 6 on Thursday after school from 3.30pm until 5.30pm. There's always plenty of fun, tuck and pizza for everyone! See some of the activities on the Facebook page spcbalsallforkids. There is a later session fortnightly for secondary-school age young people in Years 7 (Café Rock) - ask Livia for details.
DURING LOCKDOWN, this has to be suspended - we look forward to seeing you as soon as possible!
Our Young People's worker (CFM) is Livia Baciu and she has planned an exciting programme! We hope to see many young people at these events...
