Services

Our three churches offer a range of service styles each Sunday.  Our regular services include: said and sung Holy Communion; All Age Worship; and service of the Word.  Special services are held to celebrate major festivals such as Christmas, Easter, Harvest etc. and several times a year the three parishes worship together in a joint Benefice service.

You are also welcome to join us for a chat over a cup of coffee after each service.

During Lent, we have been working through a booklet provided by the United Society Partners in the Gospel called Living an Authentic Life.  To follow this up, we have invited Martin Canning, our local representative from the USPG to come and tell us about their work. He will be speaking at both Ruishton Church at 9.30 am and at Creech Church at 11.00 am. We hope that many will come and hear about the work of USPG which is a Christian mission agency in the third world.

HOLY COMMUNION ON THE THIRD THURSDAY IN THE MONTH AT CREECH ST MICHAEL

After some discussion and consultation, we have decided to hold the monthly mid-week said Service of Holy Communion in Creech meeting room during the winter months. This is because it is easier to heat and keep warm, we can sit on comfortable chairs, and enjoy tea or coffee and fellowship afterwards. You are welcome to park in the Rectory car park for this service. All welcome. The service starts at 9.30 a.m.

MORNING PRAYER 8.30-9.00 am Mondays to Thursdays at Creech Parish Church. A short, quiet, said service where we pray for the needs of our Benefice, wider community and world. All welcome. If you would like us to include anything in our prayers, please let us know, or fill in one of the prayer cards in our churches.

Rebecca Harris & Julia Curtis.
