Services & Events

Parish Eucharist happens twice monthly at 10am on Sunday.  You will be made very welcome, and there is good coffee and biscuits afterwards. On the other Sunday’s we meet at our sister church St Paul’s Clifton, and when there is no 10am at Cotham, an 8am said service of Holy Communion will be offered here (once per month this service is taken from the Book of Common Prayer.)

We also offer an 8am Holy Communion Service (said).  (on second Sundays of the month this is from the Book of Common Prayer) and a 7.30pm Foundation Service. Foundation is an alternative contemplative worshipping community and there’s more about it on it’s website, and facebook page.

There is a further Holy Communion Service every Thursday at 9am.

Morning Prayer is open to all and offered on Monday & Tuesday at 9am and Wednesday at 8.30am.

You will find a warm welcome at any and all these services.
