OUR SERVICES

Within the Earsham Benefice we run a wide variety of different services appealing to a range of ages and tastes from the more traditional to the slightly more charismatic as well as informal services for those exploring their faith or new Christians.

Different churches have slightly different feels. Children and new worshipers are welcome at all our services, though some services might suit you better than others. Broome has a robed choir with sung responses. At Denton we share the services with the Methodist and URC Ministers. Hedenham has coral evensong. In none of our churches do people have their own pews that they must always sit in.

All services have music provided either by an organist or a music group, except for the 8am at Alburgh. Most of our service follow Common Worship (CW). On any Sunday we have at least one service designed for those with children and one traditional 1662 Book of Common Prayer (BCP) service across the Benefice.

A three-monthly rota is organised by the Rector and the Ministry Team. In order to emphasis teamwork we try to ensure a leader and assistant at each service. We have some Lay Assistants who have been authorised by their PCC's to assist in this way and have been trained by the Rector. There is a central preaching plan organised by the Rector that is the same in all the churches to ensure continuity of teaching and preaching.
