OUR WORSHIP
TRADITIONAL LANGUAGE SERVICES


INTRODUCTION

If you love the words with which people have worshipped in the Church of England for over 400 years then our traditional language services are for you. The beauty of the language in the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is widely considered to be amongst the best ever penned in English. The truth about God and ourselves expressed in these services is timeless. Please join us at these historic services that still resonate with meaning in today’s world.
