Sunday Worship

Worship at Uplyme Church

Regular communal worship provides an opportunity for us to meet with God, worship together and find fellowship. We aim to provide regular communal worship in a variety of styles which are relevant to those around us. Our worship involves, and is often lead, by a team of church members.

10am Morning Worship
Is relatively informal, contemporary and inclusive. We use uncomplicated, modern liturgy and a wide range of hymns and songs. Children are always welcome and we run Junior Church, in the adjacent school building most weeks of term time. Communion is usually on the first and third Sundays of the month.

Café Worship
Takes place at around 9.45am on the last Sunday of the month, be that 4th or 5th. It is a simple, informal worship service, with dvds or films, activities for all ages, discussion groups, songs and prayers. As the name suggests, refreshments are served beforehand and throughout.

6pm Evening Worship
Is quiet, contemplative and seasonal. We draw on the rich tapestry of Christian liturgy and worship. Communion or an Agape Meal is usually on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.
