Worship at the Priory

Christians have been worshipping on this site since about 660 AD, and as far as we know, there have only been two major interruptions in the intervening 1360 years: for the Civil War, and for COVID-19. Some of what we do has stayed consistent over that time, but many things (like speaking in English, not Latin!) have changed, particularly in things like Messy Church.

Everyone is welcome to any or all of our services or gatherings. Here are our more traditional services in our church buildings - but check out the other tabs for Messy Church, some FAQs and some resources for joining in from home or praying on your own. 

 

Sunday

 

10 am Parish Eucharist (in modern language), with hymns and music led by our Priory Choir, and coffee afterwards in the Norman Nave.

and

Choral Evensong (1st Sunday of the month except December and August) led by our Priory Choir. 4.30pm in Winter and 6.30pm in Summer. 

 

Worship Online

As well as worshipping together in person, we also worship together online on the third Sunday of the month, and you would be more than welcome to join in with our online video services on our YouTube channel or our facebook page.

Please visit the Priory's YouTube channel throughout the week to view and experience previously recorded services which were created during the pandemic. 


Mid-week

Carrying on the tradition of the monks and nuns who worshipped in the Priory through the centuries, we have a morning service together most days.

All midweek services are in accessible English and follow the order in a book that you will be given when you arrive so there's no need to be familiar with the liturgies beforehand. Please check however which church each services is being held in.

For those interested in liturgy; the Franciscan Daily Office formed the basis of much of what is in the more familiar Common Worship liturgy, and the Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals follows a simple pattern of readings and prayers together with a greater focus on preparing us for action in the world.
