A Christian Almshouse - Sheltered Accommodation for Independent Living

A Christian Almshouse - Sheltered Accommodation for Independent Living

Our Chapel is very much the centre of Community life and where we gather daily at 9.30am for worship. It is a Chapel with mediaeval foundations and has an ancient piscine and aumbry.

The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in a tabernacle with a presence light and icons of Our Lady and St Nicholas before which presence lights burn during our services.

The general description of our worship would be in the Liberal Catholic tradition of the Church of England. The Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Sundays and Wednesdays and all major feast days according to the rites of the Church of England (Common Worship). The Sunday Eucharist is sung with hymns and generally Wednesdays and Feast Days it is said. We gather after the Sunday Eucharist for a drink and social time together in The Common Room.

We say Morning Prayer (Common Worship) on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and there is a rota for people to sign who would like either to lead or read.

Community members also sign up to act as server at the Eucharist and to read the Epistle. In addition to the usual round of services we observe St Nicholas’ Day with an evening Sung Eucharist with an invited preacher and the Trustees and invited guests join us for the celebration and the social gathering afterwards.

Our Chapel is a much loved part of our communal life and lovingly cared for.
