Our Types of Church Service

Sunday Services


Holy Communion or Morning Prayer. This is a quiet, spoken service, in contemporary language.


This is the main service on most Sundays and caters for people of all ages. We offer a warm and friendly welcome and most services are followed by a cup of coffee. 


5th Sunday of the month: ‘Cafe Church’ at St Matthew and St Luke’s or Pierremont Methodist Church on Vancouver Street. This is an informal service with the opportunity for discussion, held jointly with Pierremont, with the venue alternating.


2nd Sunday of the month: Holy Communion
All other Sundays: Sunday Worship, in a variety of styles.


Wednesday Service


Holy Communion. This is a spoken service in traditional language, always followed by fellowship over a cup of tea or coffee with biscuits.
