The Tenpenny Villages Benefice of Alresford, Elmstead and Frating with Thorrington

We are probably best described as a “Middle of the Road” eucharistic community; vestments are worn at all services.

Sunday Worship
Our Sunday Morning Service is at 10.00 a.m. and on most Sundays it is a service of Holy Communion.  The exception is on the second Sunday in the month when the service is a more informal family service.

Children of all ages are very welcome at all our services.

Messy Church

Once a month on a Sunday afternoon we hold Messy Church, an interactive, informal way of being church for the whole family.  There are crafts and other activities, a short time of informal worship and then a shared tea.  Messy Church is at 4.30 p.m. Please look on our Calendar page for dates.

Everyone welcome!

Midweek Worship
A 10.00 a.m. service of Holy Communion is held on a Wednesday in various homes and is followed by coffee and a chat. Attendance varies between five and eight. This is a very special service that meets both the spiritual and social needs of those less able to get to Church. However this has been suspended during the interregnum, once a new incumbent is appointed we hope to see this regaining its place as a regular feature of our worship.

Wednesday Quiet Hour
Meets between 8.00 - 9.00 p.m. in various homes. This is a prayer and meditation group with a liberal use of music and silence, but we usually begin with a short study/discussion on topics like the Psalms, the parables, women of the Bible, favourite hymns and prayer. Again, this is a very special time and an oasis in the middle of a busy week. Everyone is welcome to attend and will always be made welcome – contact us to find out where we will be meeting this week.
