The Civic and Parish Church of Bournemouth

Sung Eucharist

The Sung Eucharist is our main weekly service and celebrates the Communion with the whole community. The service lasts for about an hour and a quarter and is followed by refreshments.

The Eucharist is celebrated with great solemnity. The action of the ministers reflects the history of how the Eucharist has been celebrated over many centuries. It is an opportunity to deepen our communion with God and with one another.

During the service, hymns are sung, prayers are said, and a sermon is preached. The choir sing the main texts to settings by composers ranging five centuries, and an anthem or motet during communion.

There is a Sunday School activity for children on certain weeks – please ask when you arrive.
