Services

During the Pandemic

May 2021

We have been open for ‘in person’ worship since mid Feb and it has been wonderful to see a steady flow of people returning  as the infection rates in Streatham have fallen to the lowest level since August 2020.

We continue to follow the pattern below which allows for social distancing and we continue to wear our masks and refrain from congregational singing. 

8am The Eucharist (A spoken service)

9.30am Sung Eucharist with Choir.

11.15am Sung Eucharist with vocal quartet (Activity sheets available for children and a slightly shorter service)

Our 9.30am service will also be livestreamed on our YouTube channel.

We hope to restart Evensong at 4.30pm as soon as we return to our ‘pre covid’ worship pattern  as per below.

We anticipate that our first Sunday worshipping together at 10am, with Children’s Church will be SUNDAY 27th JUNE


Sundays

8 am Holy Communion (A quiet service without music in the Chapel of Unity)
10 am Sung Eucharist (Our main service, with choir and children’s groups)
4.30 pm Evensong (A traditional service with choral music and space for quiet reflection)

On the 1st Sunday of the month we enjoy ‘Celebrate Together’, a light touch service for All Ages.

On the 2nd Sunday of the month at 6.30 pm our evening service is Taizé prayer, with a small music ensemble, candlelight and lots of space for reflection.

There are step-by-step guides to our services on the I Am New page.

We record many of our sermons, and you can listen again online.

Weekdays

St Leonard’s is open every day in the morning for quiet prayer and reflection.

Morning Prayer is offered on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 12 noon in the Chapel of Unity.

On Wednesdays, there is a Mid-Week Eucharist at 12 noon in the Chapel of Unity.
