Current Pattern of Services

Services are now happening in the church building on the second and fourth Sunday of each month at 10:30am while we continue to offer online services every Sunday. 

We continue to host a village 'ZOOM Get Together' each Sunday at 9:30. It's an opportunity for anyone and everyone to get together, chat and then finish with a hymn, a reading and a prayer. Please contact us if you don't already receive an invite and wish to be added to our list.

The Benefice produce recorded services available on our YouTube Channel.

Pre-lockdown Pattern of Services

Morning services are held most Sundays at 10:30. Services are led by different members of the ministry team from across the Benefice and are always informal and welcoming. Generally, Holy Communion is celebrated on the second Sunday of each month with Morning Prayer on the fourth Sunday of each month. On the third Sunday of each month, there is a family service with activities for children, followed by refreshments and an opportunity to socialise! Major celebrations such as Harvest Festival and Christingle are planned to coincide with these dates where possible. There are also a number of special Church events and services throughout the year including a summer fete, harvest supper and carols by candlelight. There is no service in Assington on the first Sunday of each month when a Joint Benefice Communion Service is held at St Mary’s, Bures. In any month when there is a fifth Sunday a Joint Benefice Communion Service is held alternately at Assington or Little Cornard.
