Looking for…informal or all-age?
St Minver, St Kew and St Peter’s hold a morning worship service every other week. Leaders don’t wear robes and the service style is relaxed and informal. Music may be led on piano or by a band. We often have baptisms in these services.
Once a month, St Peter’s hold café church, which involves all-age activities, chatting on tables, good coffee and pastries.
Looking for…modern communion?
St Minver, St Peter’s and St Kew all have communion services in modern language every other week.
All three churches have a dedicated children’s area with books and toys at the back.
St Endellion has a sung eucharist every week, with incense, robes and hymns.
St Michael’s has evensong every week, with hymns and a sermon. The Magnificat, Nunc Dimittis, and psalm are sung by the congregation, and we use the black Common Worship service book.
St Enodoc has evensong every week too, also with hymns and a sermon. This service is spoken. People often come to this service with dogs and walking boots, so it has a very relaxed feel. Once a month, St Enodoc have a traditional communion service.
What should I expect?
What happens in a service?
When you arrive, someone will be waiting inside to welcome you and give you everything you need for the service. It’s best to arrive a few minutes early, so that you can pick up the books or service sheet you need and find a comfortable place to sit. You can sit anywhere you like.
After the service, some of our churches have refreshments and chatting. We’d love you to stay and introduce yourself.
How will I know what to do?
It can be confusing sometimes to know when to sit, stand or speak during the service. It will say in your service sheet and the service leader will indicate what to do when, but if in doubt, just copy the people around you! All our congregations are used to welcoming lots of visitors, so no one will mind if you’re not sure what to do. If you get lost, someone sitting nearby will be happy to help.
Will there be a collection?
Most of our services include a collection, when a bag is passed around during a song. Some members of our congregations give money via direct debit, so not everyone puts money in. You are welcome to contribute to the church, but you don’t have to, especially if this is your first time.
What should I wear?
You can wear whatever you feel most comfortable in, whether that’s jeans or smart clothing. Whatever it is, you won’t be the only one.
Are there toilets?
All our churches except St Michael’s have toilets. Some of these are accessed from outside or are next door in the hall, so it’s best to ask someone where they are.
