CHURCH ON THE GREEN

We are pleased to be able to tell you of our new initiative to bring our faith more into the heart of the community.

On the last Sunday of the month to hold a service at Lord Pirbright's Hall in Pirbright to attract families and anyone who wishes to attend a service, not held in a Church!

Next Church on the Green will be on Sunday 26th May at 10am. We will begin at 10am with tea, coffee and croissants followed by the service which will run from 10.30am until 11.30am approximately. The format will be relaxed with sung worship playing a big part. Activities for children will take place in the small hall. Welcome will also play a significant role in the time together, and we hope that we reach out to those in our communities with love and grace

Reverend George Watkinson, Vicar of St. Mark’s, Wyke and St. Michael and All Angels, Pirbright commented: “When I was appointed as the Vicar of the two parishes, part of my remit was to engage with families and those outside our church. This new initiative is indeed a part of that vision and very much in line with the plans I laid out at our APCM last year. I do hope and pray that the local communities will come together and enjoy this fresh new approach to worshipping.”

For those that can’t make the service there will also be a 10.00am communion service at St Mark’s led by a local minister. The service will be more traditional in style.
