Children are welcome at the Lord’s Table. In the Diocese of Southwark, any child aged seven years or over who is a regular worshipper can be prepared to receive holy communion.
The clergy run a First Communion Preparation Course each year and we usually have a group of seven or eight children. The preparation sessions focus on learning about our Christian journey, our baptism, the life of Jesus, how to pray and read the Bible and how the church can help with this. We have a special All Age Mass in March when the children are admitted to communion. If you would like your child prepared, please contact the Vicar.
The Eucharist (also known as Holy Communion, Mass or Lord’s Supper) sits at the heart of all our worship. We aim to marry tradition with a relaxed and informal attitude. We hold Regular Services, courses and a Sunday School for our children.
