Tarporley Parish Church

Open Worship: St Helen
1st October 2017
Change of Service Pattern

Sunday October 1st (and every 1st Sunday of the Month)

New Open Worship services at St Thomas’ and St Helen’s

For well over a year now we have been using our Seasonal Orders of Service for all our Eucharistic

Services. These have been well received and have allowed us to enjoy some of the breadth of the

prayers of the Church as well as celebrating more fully the seasons of Christ’s birth, life, death and

resurrection. Having produced new booklets for our services of Communion the Ministry Team and

PCC have, over the last few months been looking at our current family service, held on the first

Sunday of the month at St Helen’s and the fourth Sunday at St Thomas’. With the agreement of all

we have renamed the service Open Worship, produced booklets that allow for greater flexibility of

worship, in the same style and design as our Eucharistic ones and moved both services to the first

Sunday of the month. So, from October 1st Open Worship will be held at 9am at St Thomas’ and at

10am at St Helen’s. The service at St John’s will remain Holy Communion at 11:15am with Evensong

at St Helen’s at 6:30pm. The service schedule in the Parish for the rest of the month remains the

same except that Choral Eucharist will now be sung at St Thomas’ on the fourth Sunday of the

month (instead of the first).
