OUR PATTERN OF WORSHIP
Sundays 11.00am Choral Eucharist
4.00pm Choral Evensong
The main service is Anglican Prayer Book (1662), as you would find in many greater churches and Cathedrals, worship led largely through the contribution of the choir. Occasionally the evening service takes the form of Sung Compline.
At all these services the staff of Benefice Clergy and Readers share in the ministry of preaching. The congregation assist with reading of scripture and leading intercessions.
Tuesdays 5.30pm Choral Evensong (during term time)
Wednesdays 10.30am Holy Eucharist
12.45pm Lunchtime Service
Fridays and Saturdays 12.30pm Holy Eucharist (except 1st Friday of each month)
We have an active Team of Servers and Acolytes who assist in the Sanctuary, our Tower ring before worship on Sunday mornings.
St Mary’s is the Civic Church for the City and County of Swansea. There are many times in the course of the year in which special services are held, sometimes commemorating a particular anniversary or Diocesan occasion.
The Church is open on a daily basis, allowing for members of the public and our various congregations to use St Mary’s for private devotion. The newly opened Chapel of St Philip is set aside for prayer and talking to clergy. The various memorial books along the north aisle lead naturally towards the votive stand at which candles can be lit and prayers of intercession left in the book provided.
All the details above are regularly advertised in our weekly newssheet, on the monthly music list, in the monthly magazine and appear on our Notice boards outside the West End of St Mary’s.
