Church Services are held every Sunday morning. 8am 1662 said Holy Communion and 9.45 is Eucharist. There is a Family Service on the second Sunday of every month. There is also a Holy Communion at 11am on the third Wednesday of each month.
We welcome requests for Baptisms & Marriages especially from those living in the Parish or having connections with the Parish. The same is true for funerals in the church and burials in the well kept and beautiful churchyard. All these services can be adapted so they fit your family's needs. Just contact Peter the Rector on 736679 for further information.

Upcoming events at St Saviour's Church this autumn
Every term time Monday 10.00 - 11.30 Stepping Stones meet in the church for under 4's and their carers. It is a time for playing, socialising and eating all within the context of how our Christian faith and God's love helps us on life's journey. All you have to do is turn up.
Sunshine Sunday club will be decorating the Christmas tree on Sunday 10th Dec. All children are welcome. Please spread the word.
The church is open every day from 8.00am (a bit later on Saturday's as the Rector does the opening that day!) until 5.00pm. Just drop by and have a look at it all. There are also candles to be lit to remember people you know in need, and a prayer tree - you just write a concern and your request will be remembered: it can all be anonymous.

Our traditional Christmas Carol service will be held on Sunday 17th December at 5.00pm
Christmas services for families. In addition to the Christingle service, we have a blessing of the Crib service on Christmas Eve and a 10.00am Family Service on Christmas Day. All welcome.
The Ecclesiastical Court held recently has agreed to our plans for the lighting and memorial plaques both to Evelyn Pullen and the Peninsular War/Waterloo veterans buried in our churchyard. Tenders have bene invited with a deadline the end of this month for all the work inside the church. We will then be in a position to finalise costs and sign contracts. It is still hoped this will begin early January but we cannot be certain at this stage. We anticipate having to spend a few weeks in the Parish Hall for our Sunday worship (and our thanks go to Sadie and the team for being so helpful) when the church is at its most dusty – but we hope to keep this period to a minimum.
Church opening: In the week the church is usually open 8.00am to 4.00pm, Saturday 9.00am ish – 4.00pm and Sunday 7.30am – 4.00pm. It is a beautiful and tranquil place to visit and Parishioners are always welcome just to slip in.
Junior Choir: Our new junior choir will help lead worship once a month, on the second Sunday, with one practice. It will be fun and enjoyable as well as importantly helping with our singing. It is being led by Nikki Baudains, who is a singing teacher. If you would like to know more, have a word with Nikki to-day or contact her on 07797734871 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayer tree and candles: in the north lady chapel there are candles for lighting – for instance for someone facing hardship, or someone who has died or just for ourselves or our family. When the church is closed often candles have been lit during the day and that is lovely. There is also a Prayer Tree: you simply write a request out on the label provided and tie it to the tree. Peter looks at them regularly and remembers requests in his prayers.
