Huyton Parish Church


All our Sunday services may be projected on two screens. The computer used is operated by a small team of people some of whom put the power point presentations together.

Every Sunday each script is prepared usually by the person who is leading the worship. eg A priest prepares the services of Holy Communion; the Readers Morning and Evening Prayer. Each service is unique for the day and draws on a variety of sources. These are then forwarded to the parish secretary who distributes copies to the music group and those who prepare the Power Point.

The morning service of Holy Communion usually involves a Reader (deacon) and Priest who both administer the bread together with two others who administer the wine. The celebration takes place in the nave but the distribution takes place in the chancel at the communion rail. The evening service of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month is usually led by priest only but a Reader or another person assists with the distribution of the wine.

The evening service of Holy Communion on the third Sunday of the month is a more casual affair. At the peace the communicants gather round the table; the bread and wine is passed round from one to another; there is a time for sharing and singing before the closing prayers and final hymn. Sometimes when requested there is a laying on of hands.

Family Service (All Age Worship) is organised by a small group led by one of the Readers. Again as with the other service, each service is unique, prepared in script form and projected on screen as with the other services.

A form of Taize service - This service is held in the Community Room on the last Sunday of the month and is prepared by and led by the Hon Curate, or one of the Readers when she is absent. It is not projected but is in booklet form. As with the other services although unique for the day the liturgy follows the Taize material as found on line. One member of the music group assists (violin /flute) There are refreshments BEFORE this service which enables fellowship.

Baptism Services take place on the first Sunday of the month. One of the Readers assists the priest. Where there are no baptisms there is Morning Prayer.
