Preaching Timetable: January to May 2019


At St John's we have three services throughout the day each Sunday. Each service has it's own unique style of worship so there's something for everyone.

The first service of the day is the 9am service which is a traditional Church of England communion service. The 9am service is followed by a more contemporary service of worship which starts at 11am.

During the month the 11am service will include an 'All Age Service' and a 'Holy Communion' service, (see key below).

The final service of the day is the 6:30pm service. This service draws on a mix of traditional and informal styles of worship.

Once per month the 6:30pm service is a '3 Churches Joint Service' and is held at either St John's, (Hensingham), St Andrew's, (Mirehouse), or St Bridget's, (Moresby). The dates and venues for each of these services is shown below.


This colour scheme only applies to the 11am service. The 9am service is always a Holy Communion service.
