the service times for this sunday are:
8.00am joint iona communion at thakeham
10.30am joint family communion at sullington
the early morning service is an iona communion, held here at thakeham church. the service is a short 30 minute reflective eucharist written in a comtemporary style. there's a true richness and depth to the simplicity of the liturgy with an emphasis on god's acceptance of us as we meet together.
the main service this week is at sullington church and is a joint family communion service. as always, everyone is welcome, but if you have youngsters, some of the content isn't that child friendly. so we do provide a space for any young people that come along to feel they are invloved and looked after. there's usually a walk that takes place for our young folk, with a time of reflection somewhere on the downs. they then join us the rest of the church for the communion towards the end of the service - ultimately, we think this is much better for the kids rather than them having to sit through a service that perhaps doesn't bear much relevance. it's once again an opportunity for both churches to meet together and support one another in their work.
we believe our churches here in thakeham and sullington exist to serve the wider community and ultimately through that, we're serving god. we are always trying to make church, relevant, interesting and accessible for everyone - we'd love to see and meet you at one of our services.
