Get involved

There are many ways to contribute and grow within the life of our parish.

At the Church of the Resurrection our worship inspires and challenges us by re-telling the drama of Christ's life, death, and resurrection. Be a part of our serving team and lead others into a joyful encounter with God by carrying our unique processional cross, serving as an acolyte carrying the light of Christ, reading the scriptures, or leading the weekly Prayers of the People.

As a Christian community, God calls us to follow him with a joyful obedience. It is easier to do this when we spend time with each other. Our CoR groups meet regularly to pray and reflect together, and we run Advent and Lent study groups and parish quiet days and retreats. Get in touch to find out more about these opportunities to grow in discipleship together.

There are many other ways to contribute to our community. Joining the flower arranging team, serving food and drinks at our various gatherings, welcoming visitors and parishioners on a Sunday, being a Children's Church leader, joining our community engagement team, or becoming a member of Mothers' Union are all fantastic ways to be a part of our lively parish.

Supporting your community

Your donations help us in the important work we do in your community.

Our parish has a strong focus on arts development. The Mapstone Choral Scholarships support four young musicians each year, providing them with opportunities to expand their repertoire and small group singing skills.

The Church of the Resurrection seeks to welcome and serve those often overlooked in our society. Our ministry team regularly visits local residents, including the elderly, and those with chronic mental health issues.

The church serves our local community by providing a place of stillness and reflection and for celebrating some of the most important moments in our lives. All are welcome to come and sit in the stillness, light a candle, or spend some time with our Stations of the Resurrection, or join us in our weekly celebrations.

Children and families

Young families are at the centre of our church community.

Baptism is much more than a beginning to the Christian life. In baptism, we are immersed into the life of Jesus: a life of blessing, celebration, compassion, and joy. We offer baptisms and confirmations throughout the year, except during the seasons of Lent and Advent. Please get in touch if you would like further information.

Our children's masses are full of vibrant interaction. We hold special services just for children at Christmas and Easter, with streamers, bells, and costumes. On Sundays, our Godly Play programme uses a careful telling of scripture stories and engaging story figures to encourage children to seek and find their own answers.
Every second Sunday of the month we host a Families @5pm Eucharist.

Children are a welcome and respected part of our congregation. Our Godly Play program runs during our main Sunday Services at 9 a.m. on the first, third and fifth Sundays of the month and at 5 p.m. on the fourth Sunday. It helps children explore the wonderful world of faith that we find in Scripture and the Christian tradition. At 5 p.m. on the second Sunday of the month we offer a Family Eucharist at which children are actively encouraged to share in leading the service. This is followed by a bring and share supper.
