The 9.15am Sunday Holy Communion services use Common Worship with hymns with a robed choir and organist. The 8.00am Sunday Communion services are simpler said services using the Book of Common Prayer.
On the second Sunday of each month at 10am there is a friendly, informal style service, suitable for all ages with songs, readings, prayers and activities.
A particular highlight of the year is the December Toy Service where gifts of toys for children and toiletries for their mothers are donated. During the service everyone is involved in making a special Christmas cake which will go with the gifts to the families at Salisbury Women’s Refuge.
In August a church family member hosts a barbecue for St Birinus and St Mary's Church families and friends.
All services except 8am are followed by refreshments and a chance to catch up with friends.
We regularly pray for those in the parish, latterly on a road by road basis. We will pray for anyone who asks us to pray for specific concerns. If you have a prayer request then please leave a note in the letterbox in the church porch, or the prayerbox in Woodfalls Post Office. You can also send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
St Birinus Church Prayer
O God our Creator, whose love is for everyone, strengthen our commitment and desire to love and serve all in our community.
Help us to be obedient to your command to share the good news of your son Jesus Christ and his love for the entire world.
We pray for your promised Holy Spirit to give us courage, imagination and wisdom, so that we may be guided and equipped to do your will.
