Summer Interlude Series
6.30pm Services in the Octagon
Before we start our Evensongs at Marlborough Road Methodist Church on 10 September we continue our evening worship at 6.30pm in the Octagon. Each Sunday evening will have a distinct theme and each offer the opportunity to experience different styles of worship. The services will last up to an hour.
Do join us for these special services – all are welcome.

During this service we will look at the topic of prayer from the perspective of the Bible alongside our own experience. Some resources and will be available as we aim to encourage a growing confidence in our prayer life.
6 August – Inspiration from art
This service will lead us in consideration and wonder from the world of art. There will be time for input and discussion leading to prayerful reflection.
13 August – Holiday Evensong
Many will be familiar with this service. It is based on our usual Choral Evensong but is shorter and without the choir. It will include hymns and a Psalm sung by a singer. A bible reading and a short talk are brought together in the words of the service and our intercessions.
20 August – Taize
With readings and accessible liturgy and some well known songs this service creates a prayerful and thoughtful atmosphere. Many who know this style of service appreciate the sense of space and peace afforded in this act of worhsip.
27 August – Lego Church
As the title suggests this is a creative experience for people of all ages to attend. As we focus on God the creator we are reminded that we are called to participate in God’s ongoing creative work in the world today.
