Worship - Pattern of Services
A Regular Pattern
Picture, A Dymock Congregation
Dymock is one of 9 churches in the 'United Benefice of the Leadon Vale'. The Services follow a regular pattern with a Service in our church every Sunday morning, except when there's a fifth Sunday in the month when we all go to one of the nine churches in turn. The Service is usually at 9:30am, except the 5th Sunday which is at 10:00am. Occasionally this pattern varies because of a clash of dates etc. Any variations are marked * (Return to top)

There is also usually a midweek Service of Holy Communion on a Wednesday and a Service of Matins on a Friday, but these are sometimes cancelled at short notice due to a clash of dates. Please check the Diary Page for the latest position on mid-week Services. (Return to top)

We welcome children at all our Services but on the second Sunday of the month there is usually an informal 'Family Service' for all ages and on the fourth Sunday a 'Fun Club' (Sunday School) in the Parish Hall next door with activities especially for ages 5 - 12, they then join us in church just before the end of the Service to show us what they've been doing. The full pattern is shown below. (Return to top)
