Sunday Worship


During the coronavirus outbreak our services are mostly online, visit our home page for details.

St Mary’s meets for worship in our new church building to the rear of the Coppice School on Shawhurst Lane in Hollywood.  Join us any Sunday for one of our two main services:

9am – Holy Communion

This traditional service lasts 45-50 minutes and includes two hymns and a short sermon.  (The pattern is Common Worship Order One in traditional or modern language.)

10.30am – Modern, Lively Service

Our 10.30 services are bright and vibrant, with Sunday School and Crèche groups for children. Services usually last 80-90 minutes, with contemporary worship led by a band and a longer teaching slot.  The pattern alternates between Holy Communion and other services, including Morning Praise and the following special events:

  • JAM Services – The ‘Jesus and Me’ after school groups take over the service for a mix of energetic worship, fun and Biblical wisdom.
  • All Age Services – children stay in for the whole service, which is shorter and more child-friendly.  Festivals like Mothering Sunday tend to be all age, as do the Sundays over the summer holidays when Sunday school classes take a break.
  • Festivals like Christmas and Easter, where we often join with other churches or organisations.
  • Youth Services – our teenagers lead the whole service.

All are welcome!
