Summer Services

We have now entered our summer service pattern. From 24th July –28th August we will be combining the 9:30am and 11:15am services to form one single service at 10:30am. Children's groups will continue to operate and they will be normal services, just at a different time. During August there will be no evening services at St. David's, but you would be very welcome at the 6pm service at Holy Ascension Oddington on 7th August. The 8am service will continue as normal. All our services will revert to their normal pattern from 4th September.


We have four different Sunday services, of different sizes and styles, but central to them all is the Good News of Jesus as revealed in the Bible. Our main services are at 9:30am and 11:15am, but there is also a well attended service at 6pm and, twice a month, a small service at 8am.

Sundays @ 9:30

Both 9:30 and 11:15 follow the same preaching programme but 9:30 is more informal and contemporary, and is also the best service for children to come to. Music is normally led by a small band.

Children are with us at the start of the service, and there is normally a short 'children's slot' before they head over to the church Centre for their groups. The service normally lasts a little over an hour and refreshments are served afterwards, which provides an opportunity for members of the 9:30 congregation to mingle with people arriving for the 11:15 service.

During the school summer holidays, and on a few other occasions throughout the year, the 9:30 and 11:15 services combine for a single service at 10:30.

Sundays @ 11:15

Both 9:30 and 11:15 follow the same preaching programme but 11:15 has a slightly more traditional style, with music normally led from our organ or piano, and with a small orchestral group playing roughly once a month.

The service normally lasts a little over an hour and refreshments are served afterwards, although people coming to 11:15 are warmly encouraged to come early and join in the refreshments being served after the 9:30 service, to enable people from both congregations to mingle.

People of all ages are welcome at this service but there is no specific provision for children.

This service is livestreamed and can be watched on our YouTube Channel.

Sundays @ 6:00

This informal service, lasting a little over an hour, follows a different preaching series from the morning services, meaning that some people come to it for a second service on a Sunday. For others it is their main or only service.

On a few Sundays in the year this service is held at one of the other churches in the benefice (see the list of upcoming services below). During August the evening service takes a break.

Sunday 8am Communion

The 8am service, which is a small and very traditional service of Holy Communion from the Book of Common Prayer, is held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month (see the list of upcoming services below). There are no hymns during this service but there is still a sermon.
