Our 9.00am morning service is usually a traditional Holy Communion, and on the second Sunday of the month it is traditional Morning Prayer. At the 9.00am service we have a choir and sing hymns accompanied by the organ. The service finishes at 10.00am and then refreshments are served. Prayer ministry is always available at the end of the service.
Between 10.00 and 10.30am both congregations meet over a time of tea, coffee and good conversation.
The 10.30am service is informal and we sing worship songs with a band. The first Sunday of every month is Cafe Church
, on the second Sunday of the month we include Holy Communion and on the the third Sunday we often baptise new members into the Church family. Our 10.30 service has lots of groups for children of different ages, who meet in our new parish centre which is joined to the church. Parents register their children in the foyer before the service starts. There are 3 areas for toddlers - inside church, in the foyer and in the creche room. Prayer ministry is available towards the end of the service, from a team of trained prayer ministers.
The 4pm service happens monthly in our neighbour church, St Martin's, in the centre of Dorking. This is led by a team from St Paul's who began a new Cafe Church congregation in 2019 in partnership with members of St Martin's. A real mix of people gather for food and craft stations, including lego tables and Mario games, and then we focus on a short time of modern sung worship with a short talk suitable for people of all ages. In the summer we meet outside for open air worship on the green space in front of the church. Great food and a warm welcome guaranteed!
Our evening service at St Paul's meets in our church hall and is a very informal time together of contemporary worship, with a short Bible talk and plenty of space given for prayer, words of prophecy, and ministry time. We begin with refreshments, and the service lasts about an hour.
