Unless otherwise stated, we meet for worship in Bancroft’s School Chapel every Sunday morning from 11am to approximately 12noon. Visitors are welcome to join us for tea or coffee after the service in the school.   

In accordance with our desire to learn from all Christian traditians, our Sunday morning services are led by visiting preachers from the Anglican, Baptist, Congregational, Methodist, Roman Catholic and United Reformed Church, as well as the Moravian and Pentecostal Churches, The Salvation Army, House Churches and various urban and overseas missions.  The style of worship in our services may, therefore, vary from week to week and the Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated (monthly) in either Anglican or Non Conformist style, depending on the visiting preacher.
