Worship on Sundays

Our Sunday worship is conducted by invited ministers or lay preachers or by our own congregational worship group. When there is a minister in post, they lead worship generally about once a month. It usually takes about an hour and generally includes some time for quiet reflection. We like our services to be thought-provoking, reflective, inclusive and joyful, but also open to variations and to things new.

Sunday worship services are normally at 11am. Occasionally in summer there's an evening service of reflection, see below

Since the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic, Aston Tirrold has taken the opportunity to make use of the Zoom video meeting set up. We have found that Zoom is a practical choice for those unable to be out for whatever reason. The Zoom link is sent to a regular church emailing list. Two cameras are in the church, one focussed on the worship leader and the reading lectern, the other is on the central area of the congregation. If you are missing this information and wish to find out the Zoom link, please make use of contacts page.

This is our current worship monthly pattern (as of May 2024):

In spring and summer:

In autumn and winter

We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month and on high Christian festivals such as Easter and Christmas.


We use a relatively traditional Reformed pattern (Bible readings, sermon, prayers, hymns and other music) but with many variations and innovations, particularly time for meditation/reflection.

We enjoy the presence of children and young families and, for very young children, we provide a toy box in the church.

After worship everyone is invited to refreshments in our Centre for Reflection.

Evening services

In the summer months we occasionally offer evening services at 6pm instead of the morning service
