We are updating our website design to improve the experience on our site.

Services

Set in a Liberal Catholic Eucharistic tradition, St Mary’s worships in a spirit of “relaxed formality”, where the focus is on fine choral music and liturgy with a feeling that God is transcendent. The church offers additional choral worship centred on major festivals and pays close attention to the changing liturgical seasons. St Mary’s congregation values traditional worship ‘done well’.

Like St Mary’s, St Anne’s is an intergenerational, liberal and inclusive congregation, who worship an immanent God. Recent re-ordering has seen the pews removed and the nave altar become the main permanent focus of worship. Worship is less formal here than at St Mary’s and takes place in the round. Worship is led by organ and piano, and the feeling is very much that God is immanent.

Live-streamed Services

When the Eucharist service is from St Mary's at 10:00am, it will also be live-streamed to our Facebook page www.facebook.com/ParishOfMoseley and the Benefice website (unless it is the Intergenerational Service, which is not live-streamed). If the video does not appear on the website at 10am, please refresh your page.

Breakfast Church

Breakfast Church is different. With a strong emphasis on community, fun and food, it’s a chance to meet people, and engage with God in a fresh and accessible way, with breakfast included. It happens early in the day to accommodate busy families with multiple commitments.

Evensong

A traditional service where some of the liturgy is sung. The service is from the Book of Common Prayer (1662)  with psalms, canticles, hymns, prayers, readings and a sermon.

Celtic Style Evening Worship

A quiet, reflective service of readings, prayer and music, with liturgy and themes drawn from communities with roots in early Celtic Christianity.

Wholeness and Healing

Our service of Wholeness and Healing is a quiet service of readings, music, prayer and reflection, with a focus on wholeness and healing. You do not have to be unwell to come, and you will not need to share anything personal. There is an invitation to receive the laying on of hands with prayer; this may be for ourselves, for others, for a situation on our minds, or for the world. There is also the opportunity to be anointed with oil. Both are optional; you are simply invited to come as you are, bringing and sharing your burdens with God who knows us deeply.

Taize

A Taizé service is meditative in style and includes sung or chanted prayers, periods of silence and  readings from the Bible. It is the repetitive nature of the singing that allows the mind and heart the freedom to go deeper into worship.
