This is a quiet service, with no hymns except at festivals, and no children's groups. Readings and liturgy are taken from Common Worship and a sermon is preached.

A robed choir leads this more traditional service. The second Sunday of each month includes a celebration of Holy Communion.

Sometimes we change our service pattern and meet all together in one of our churches, so please check the diary here for specific details each week.

Twyford URC

10:30 am Morning Service

A service with a blend of traditional and modern elements. A good half of our services are conducted by our own Minister, with visiting preachers from nearby churches on the other Sundays.
