Scroll down a little bit to find some explanation about these services.

High Mass

Mass (Eucharist) with traditional hymns, choir, organ, sermon. We read from the Bible, listen to the sermon, sing a few "good old hymns". Bread and wine are consecrated into Christ's Body and Blood and then Holy Communion is received. Incense is used. The whole service lasts about an hour.

Low Mass

Mass (Eucharist) but a shorter, more simple service than on Sundays. No hymns, no incense. We still read from the Bible, offer prayers, and receive Holy Communion. The service is less formal than on Sunday, and lasts ca. 25 minutes.

Evensong & Benediction

A service very much loved by many: we sing some Psalms, read from the Bible, and offer some prayers. Incense is used. The whole service is in traditional language, from the Book of Common Prayer. After Evensong the Blessed Sacrament (Jesus' presence amongst us in the consecrated Bread) is enthroned on the Altar, and praises and intercessions are offered.

Morning/Evening Prayer

Said, simple service, lasting 15-20 minutes. This service is less formal, and consists of a psalm, two readings, and some prayers. 

St Paul's

St Paul’s is a lively, forward-looking Anglican church in the Catholic tradition. We are affiliated to the Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda and our PCC has passed the resolution seeking episcopal oversight from the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.

We are part of the diocese of Salisbury and the Deanery of Weymouth and Portland. We maintain very close links with our Voluntary Aided School, Beechcroft St. Paul’s.
