Worshipping at St Ternan’s.

This page details the times and formats of our regular services – please see “our blog” for information about special services (such as Easter, Harvest and Christmas). Services at the New Year may be curtailed.

Sunday services

Each Sunday at 8am we have a quiet Communion service in traditional language,
using the 1970 liturgy.

On the first Sunday of the month, alongside our 1982 Communion service with choir we offer “Diddy Disciples” for our youngest children, “Godly Play” for those of primary age whilst those of secondary age meet in Tease, the cafe next door, for their discussions. All three groups return in time to share communion.

On the second, and fourth Sunday of each month at 11 am we have a service of the Eucharist supported by the choir. The liturgy used is that of the 1982 Liturgy authorised by the Scottish Episcopal Church. The Sunday School and Youth Group are present at the start of the service, returning to the church for communion.

On the third Sunday of each month we have two services at 11am, reflecting Anglican expressions of worship from the 17th to the 21st centuries:

In the church: Morning Prayer (Matins) from the Scottish Book of Common Prayer.

In the hall: An All-Age Service communion service in a relaxed form, with seasonal themes and opportunities for everyone to participate as they are comfortable.

5th Sunday Family Service
All together in the Church, with all ages sharing in the leadership.

On the first Sunday of each month we hold Evensong, from the Scottish Book of Common Prayer at 6.30pm. This includes an anthem sung by the choir.

Midweek services

Each Tuesday at 9am we have informal contemporary communion in the church hall,
with a discussion sermon.

Each Thursday at 10.15am we celebrate the English rite of Holy Communion,
from the Scottish Book of Common Prayer, gathered in in the choir stalls.
