Sunday Services

There is a variety of different church services being held each Sunday throughout the benefice of Abbotsbury, Portesham and Langton Herring.  

We hope that are you are able to feel that you come into the presence of God when you take part in worship, and then when you leave, feel emboldened in the love of Jesus Christ, to make a difference to His world.

The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) dates to 1662, and the words and prayers are written in English of that period.  

Many people find the particular style of language helpful to them, as the words often have a rhythm of their own.   This rhythm in turn, assists some some people, as they contemplate their life in the world and their relationship with God. 

This service is ideal for young families and friends.

It is light in touch and there is the opportunity to join in with precision instruments.

We also have a family corner located to the back of the church.  At the front of the church is the vestry with toilets and a baby changing facility.

This is a modern Common Worship Parish Communion Service, and the words in the service are modern.   

The service does have a formal structure, but we believe that is conducted in a way that prevents the formality of the service from being oppressive ‘a formal service, with rounded edges’.
