Congregational involvement: Read lessons; simple drama by arrangement. After the steward welcomes the preacher the organist will usually play a short piece to settle the congregation. We prefer to sing one designated hymn sitting down to be inclusive of all in an ageing congregation. We are comfortable with silence as part of the prayers or service provided it is made clear that this is what will happen. We are able to lead intercessions if requested. Please contact the Worship Leader with an Order of Service to arrange this. After the Grace, notices are given out and news shared over tea and coffee in the church

Contact with preacher: One of the Sunday Worship Team will email or telephone during week before
