Traditional Worship

Many of our congregation enjoy the traditional aspects of the Christian faith.  With St Michael’s and All Angels steeped in history and maintaining the beautiful, ancient fabric of the church, there is no better place to do this.

Withyham Church has a tradition of choral Anglican worship led by a Choir with a weekly Sunday Morning service of Sung Matins – except for a monthly Sung Eucharist (Holy Communion) – at 11.00am; and Sung Evensong at 6.30pm.  

During lockdown we had short services on Zoom, currently a short service of Matins once a month when the Family Service is in Church.

The pattern will change slightly as we emerge from the restraints of the virus.

All Age for Families

We are delighted that families choose to come together as a community and worship God at the Family Services, 'Breakfast Church' at The Rectory and more recently over our Sunday Zooms.  These are important to us as we seek to provide services in addition to traditional Anglican worship for families and those who value less formal worship.

Prior to Coronavirus, there was a fortnightly Family Service in Church and a monthly Breakfast Church at the Rectory.

During Lockdown we have had held weekly services on Zoom lasting ½ hour including a starter activity, a Bible storey and talk, together with a time of sharing for prayer.
