Our Worship

Our services take different forms, to express ourselves in different ways:

  • Holy Communion is a more formal service, with readings and prayers and hymns. We give thanks over bread and wine which remind us of the Last Supper which Jesus shared with His disciples the night before He died. As we do we are celebrating with other Christians (seen and unseen) and in the presence of the risen Jesus Himself.

  • Family service is an all-age service lasting 45 minutes or less. Some of the music, and prayers are aimed at a younger congregation. Baptisms are usually held in these services. Click here to see the usual pattern for Family Services.

  • Family Communion services are held when there are families and children present. They aim to be accessible to people unfamiliar with communion, or formal church services. They are usually held for baptisms and at festivals, such as Christmas and Easter.

  • Morning Praise is a service of readings, prayers and hymns.

  • Evensong services follow Evening Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer (1662).

  • Taize services are short meditative, informal services with readings, prayer and the singing of chants. These are held on the last Sunday of the month at 3pm, alternately at All Saints, Harrowbarrow, and the Tamar Valley Methodist Church, Albaston.
Our services may be lead by Rev. Chris Painter (Priest in charge), one of our LLMs (Locally Licensed Ministers), lay Worship Leaders or retired clergy.
