Regular meetings and events

We offer different styles of worship and all are welcome at any of our services.

Sunday 8:00am: Communion (Book of Common Prayer)

This is a quiet and reflective traditional said service which lasts approximately 30 minutes.

Sunday 10:00am: Main Sunday Service

Holy Communion takes place most Sundays, this is our main Sunday service and all are welcome. Our music is led by the organ and the choir and we try to have the best of the old hymns and the best of the new. There are Bible readings and a talk and tea and coffee are served after the service.

Our Family Service is on the first Sunday of every month. People of all ages are welcome and music is chosen to suit both grandparents and children. The readings and prayers are usually led by families from our congregation and tea and coffee are served after the service.

Sunday School takes place during 10.00 communion services during term time for primary age children. We usually include a game, a Bible story, something to make and a prayer time. It is fun and friendly and parents are welcome to stay.

Sunday 6:30 pm: Evening Service

Holy Communion is held on the first Sunday of every month at 6.30pm. There are hymns from the organ, a Bible reading and a talk. This is a common worship service. Everyone is very welcome to join us.

On the other Sundays we have Evensong (Book of Common Prayer) with hymns led from the organ. All are welcome.

About Us

St Lawrence's is a Church of England church with a core of committed members.

Our congregation is made up of people from many different backgrounds, spanning a wide age range (0 – 101) and with preferences for different styles of service.

We are an integral part of the community.

A large proportion of the population of the parish will pass through our doors at some point during the year. St. Lawrence’s is a place people turn to in times of joy and sorrow.

We have a keen sense of our mission.

We are called to love God and love our neighbours as ourselves. So we seek to worship God, to care for others and to be a faithful Christian witness to our community.

Junior Church is held during the 10am service each Sunday. The children join in the adults in time to go up for a blessing during communion and stay in church for the whole of the Family Service on the 1st Sunday each month

Prayers for Wholeness and Healing are held at the 6:30pm service on the 1st Sunday each month. On Monday mornings prayers are said for everyone on the Prayer Board (located at the front left of church by the Lady Chapel and available for anyone to leave a prayer)

Our Vicar

As the Vicar of Hungerford Mike has overall responsibility for the leadership of St Lawrence’s church.

He worked in research at Sonning Common for seven years before training at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. He was a curate in Bolton, Team Vicar in Eccles, Advisor for Evangelism in the Manchester diocese, Rector of Eversley and Vicar of Darby Green. He loves to pray and to preach.
