Here are the services and other events coming up in Little Gaddesden Parish Church in the next few days.
Parish Communion – a Sung Eucharist with Sunday School
Our most frequent Sunday morning service follows the traditional Anglican Communion, or Eucharistic, service. We have traditional hymns and the Gloria and Responses sung to the Patrick Appleford setting of the Mass in E. The service lasts for almost an hour. Sunday School for children is held in the adjoining vestry during the service, with the children joining in at the communion.
Refreshments are served afterwards.
Sung Evensong (Book of Common Prayer)
Our usual Sunday Evensong follows the traditional Book of Common Prayer service. It includes a sung Magnificat, Nunc Dimittis and Psalm as well as sung Responses and traditional hymns. This service is often conducted by one of the Readers.
About four times in the year there is an alternative form of Evensong, often following the Ionia pattern. These are advertised separately.
Midweek Holy Communion (Said Eucharist)
This midweek eucharist is a spoken service, based on a modernised Book of Common Prayer, generally held on Thursdays at 10:00am. It lasts for a little under half an hour.
