At 6pm we worship with less ‘noise’, something more reflective, using rich language and music.
Our Evening Worship follows the rhythm of the Christian year with its rich tapestry of themes and images. We draw from the flexible pattern of daily prayer compiled by Angela Ashwin. We highly recommend her book Woven into Prayer to aid you in your own spiritual devotion.
The Evening Worship at Uplyme is a special time of praise and prayer in a more meditative and contemplative tradition. Within an atmosphere of quiet and reflection we use texts from a range of traditions within the Christian Church. Where possible we have tried to make the liturgy more participatory through the use of congregational prayers and responses, and employ times of silence for personal reflection and prayer. We find that these precious times of quiet are often the times we hear from God.
It is our hope and prayer that you will meet with God and that God will meet with you through the worship. May he minister to your deepest needs and may Christ be the light in your darkness.
