Everyone is very welcome at our Services. The heart of our worshipping life is the celebration of the Eucharist or Holy Communion, the service given to the Church by our Lord Jesus Christ himself at the Last Supper he held with his disciples, when he commanded them to 'do this in remembrance of me'.
Our principal weekly service is the Parish Communion at 10.15 am on Sundays, which is attended by a wide range of parishioners, of all ages. The service follows the contemporary language Order One from 'Common Worship' and lasts about an hour. Many members of the congregation stay on for coffee afterwards. Families with children are always welcome, and there is a Children's Corner in Church. Baptisms normally take place at this service rather than on a separate occasion.
There is also a monthly celebration of Holy Communion from the traditional language Book of Common Prayer following Sunday Evensong, and other Evening Communion Services take place on such occasions as Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday.
Once a month Matins from the Book of Common Prayer takes place at 10.15 am instead of Parish Communion. Evensong is also held on Sunday evenings at least once a month, and in the winter a monthly United Service is held in one or other of the churches of Shanklin.
