Celtic Services

We hold regular services Celtic style communion services and Celtic Year gatherings.

The Celtic Communion Service is usually shorter than the traditional communion service, uses more inclusive language and includes our junior choir.

The Celtic Gatherings are informal and open to all. We will be marking key seasons and moments during the year as shown in the poster below and following the thoughts in the book by David Cole – “The Celtic Year”. We will usually gather around an open fire and maybe write things down then casting them onto the fire as a symbol of letting go. There will be some liturgy, some sharing, some reading of the bible and closing in prayer. There will be hot drinks and marshmallows. People need to bring a blanket and warm clothes if it is cold.
