Worship & Services

The principal act of worship is the Sunday morning service. This is basically a family service with the children being in church for the first 15 to 20 minutes when a children’s address is included. 

Holy Communion is celebrated monthly. During the summer we mark the Church Anniversary. In addition we celebrate all the major Christian Festivals.

There is strong ecumenical co-operation between all the Churches in Swanage, in which we are actively involved.

On the first Sunday of each month we have a shared service with our friends from the Methodist Church - at alternating venues. When there is a  fifth Sunday we have a shared service with our sister Church at Wareham - again the venue alternates.

Each Easter Morning a special service is held on the beach at Sunrise. This has now become an ecumenical event and we are joined by friends from other churches. As well as having a fire, bread and fish are served as the sun rises over the horizon.

Covid-19 - recently we have been holding services at church and connecting with members and friends via Zoom. We are having to suspend these services. We are actively discussing how we can best deliver Worship over the next month.


A small, but dedicated team, ensure that flowers are in place for each service. These are then distributed to the sick or those we feel would appreciate them.

For Festival Services arrangements are usually produced to fit the theme of the service.
