Services

Eucharist Service

There is a Eucharist service in St Mary's Church every Sunday, with the exception of those Sundays when we have the Intergenerational service.  The Eucharist service starts at 10.00 am. 

Please do come along if you are able.

For everyone's safety, we would ask you to observe the following if you are coming to the service: 
  • A one-way system is in operation in church. Please enter via the main door, unless you need level access, in which case entry is via the south east door (nearest to the Lady Chapel). Exit for everyone is via the south east door.
  • Please remember that you will need to wear a face covering whilst in Church. 
  • Please sanitise your hands on entry and exit. Please also sanitise your hands after taking off your face covering to receive the communion bread, and after you have replaced your face covering. Sanitiser will be available.  
  • Please sit socially distanced from others, or sit with members of your household or social bubble. All pews marked with an arrow are available. 
  • Orders of service, Test & Trace forms and pens are in the pews ready for you to use. If you have downloaded the NHS COVID 19 app to your smartphone please do use it to check in. Just scan the QR code which is on the back of the paper Test & Trace Form using the app, and you won't need to fill in a paper form! 
  • All those attending are encouraged to have a lateral flow test in advance of the day. Local chemists are providing lateral flow tests for those over the age of 11 who are asymptomatic. You can find out which chemists are providing this service and book a test here. There are also several mobile testing centres around the city, including one in Cannon Hill Park.  You can find more information and book a test at a mobile site here.  Alternatively, you can get a test without needing to book at the Maypole Youth Centre, Idmiston Croft, B14 5NJ, which is open every day from 8am - 6pm. You can also order lateral flow tests to do at home. You can order them on line or find a pharmacist where you can collect them from: further information is here.

The service will also be live-streamed to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/StMarysMoseley.

The live video will also appear on the homepage of the Benefice website www.moseleychurch.org.uk shortly before 10am. If the video does not appear at 10am, please refresh your page.

 

Intergenerational Worship Service 

Each month, usually on the second Sunday of the month, we are holding an online service via Zoom at 11.00 am that is suitable for all ages. Please note that on these Sundays, no service will be broadcast from church. 

 

Morning Prayer

Join us for Morning Prayer in St Mary's Church at 9.10am on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and in St Anne's Church at 9.10am on Wednesdays. 

Normally, Morning Prayer is only attended by members of the clergy team, plus one or two members of our congregations. If you would like to attend, you would be very welcome but for the moment, please do let the office know in advance so that we can plan appropriately. Please wear a face covering and maintain social distancing.  Please also sanitise your hands on entry and exit.

 

Thursday Midday Prayers in St Mary's Churchyard 

Weather permitting, there will be a simple, socially distanced, prayer service in the churchyard every Thursday at midday. The service is based on Common Worship. Please bring a copy, download the office, or get the midday app from the C of E website if you want to participate. Or, just come along and listen and pray. Please do wear suitable clothing and bring something to sit on if you would like to.
You can find the Thursday prayers here. Or you can download the Daily Prayer app here.

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  here.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.
