Welcome to St Martins Ryarsh

Our Church

We are a church of all ages, with a broadly evangelical tradition.

Linda our Rector has retired so at present we are in an Interregnum, (In between Rectors) but services continue.

We share several mid-week and monthly activities across the BART Group; some are on YouTube at home and some in church. All are welcome to attend.



Our serviceso

We continue with our Sunday Worship, including an All-Age Family Service on the first Sunday of each month and an All-Age Family Holy Communion Service held on the third Sunday of each month.

At present we aim to include children and young people at each service with a short talk or task or activity pack with the goal of worshiping God together and making known the good news about Jesus Christ as he is revealed in the Bible, which is at the heart of our teaching and preaching.

Family Service, 1st Sunday each month

9.30 am for about 50 minutes: an informal service with biblical teaching and activities to include all the family; sung worship is led by a small music group; and refreshments will soon be served again after the service.

All-Age Family Holy Communion, 3rd Sunday each month

9.30am for about an hour: traditional hymns and some worship songs when possible led by organ or keyboard; biblical teaching and activities to include all the family, prayer and reflection; refreshments will soon be served after the service.

Activities for children

Children are welcome and included at every service with a short talk or task or activity pack to complete.
