A Sunday service

Sunday is the most important day in the life of any church. At St James's Church there are generally three services every Sunday:

08.00 Holy Communion (a short said communion service)
09.30 Parish Communion (a sung eucharist) or occasionally an All Age Service (a family friendly service) If the latter, there is no Together at Eleven service.
11.00 Together at Eleven (a short service mainly for children and their families, but everyone is very welcome) 

In between the 9.30am and 11am services coffee, tea, squash with hot and cold bites are served in the church hall for everybody.

Throughout the Church Year, the Sunday Parish Communion celebrates festivals and special days or days. Music plays an important part during the Sunday services, particularly on these special days.

From time to time there are also additional services, including special Evensongs. Churches Together Around Hampton put on a Songs of Praise service in St James's, when congregation members chose their favourite hymns to sing. Another example are the Pet Services, giving thanks to God for all the animals around us. Here pets of all kinds are brought into church for a blessing and the service includes songs, stories and prayers followed by both pets and owners enjoyed some refreshments.
