    Suspension of Public Worship

    PUBLIC WORSHIP REMAINS SUSPENDED UNTIL SUNDAY 14th MARCH

    At the meeting of the PCC on Tuesday 23rd February, considering the latest coronavirus infection rate figures,  it was agreed that we would reestablish public worship in both our Churches from Sunday 14th March but with a few changes to the service times.  The reason for these changes is to allow enough time between services for the one congregation to leave before the next arrives and time to clean between services.  

    From Sunday 14th March, the pattern of our Sunday will be as follows:
    8.00am Low Mass (Roffey)
    9.00am All Age Mass (Roffey)
    10.00am Parish Mass (Roffey)
    11.00am Parish Communion (Colgate) (1st and 3rd Sunday)
    6.00pm Evensong (1st & 3rd Sunday Roffey) (2nd & 4th Sunday Colgate)

    The numbers able to attend each of these services will be limited and so you will need to book in advance.

    to the website for the Parish of Colgate and Roffey.

    St Saviours's is the parish church of Colgate which comprises of the Villages of Colgate and Faygate and the new housing development of Kilnwood Vale and is located in Forest Road and All Saints' is the parish church of Roffey located on Crawley Road (a few minutes drive from the centre of Horsham.)   

    Colgate and Roffey form a single parish within the Church of England's Diocese of Chichester.  On Wednesday 20th September the parishes of Colgate and Roffey were merger by a pastoral scheme to form this new parish and Fr Russell was installed as the first Vicar.

    As Anglican parish churches our worship comes from the Church of England's liturgies, ‘Common Worship’ and ‘The Book of Common Prayer.’ The worship at All Saints is in the 'high church' or 'anglo-catholic' style with a focus on the Sacraments and the beauty of holiness revealed through the dignity and ceremony of our worship.  The worship at St Saviour's can be described as 'Central', which means it is slightly less ceremonial but is still dignified.  

    On Sundays, All Saints' has 3 different styles of Eucharistic worship starting with a quiet contemplative Mass at 8am then an All Age Mass with a focus on children at 9.15am and finally a Traditional Sung Mass at 10.30am.  On the first Sunday of the Month, 10.30am congregations join with the congregation of St Saviour's to worship together at 11.00am at St Saviour's. All Saints Church has passed the House of Bishop's declaration on the ministry of Priest and Bishops and we are fully committed to upholding the five guiding principles to provide for mutual flourishing throughout the church.

    As a parish, we have an active social life which helps draw our diverse, all-age congregations together.

    As well as our Sunday Masses we also celebrate Mass on a Wednesday at 10am followed by coffee, Thursday at 7.00pm, Friday at 8.00am.

    St Saviour's has 2 Sunday services each month. On the 1st Sunday of the month, the service is a Contemporary Sung Eucharist and the congregation is joined by those of All Saints and on the 3rd Sunday of each month, the Service is taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.  Both these services are at 11.00am.  In addition, there is also a said Holy Communion service every Saturday Morning at 10.30am 

    Other services take place on major feast days, as well as during Lent, Advent and at other special times. These range from Stations of the Cross to a Children’s Crib service.

    We hope that you will come and join us.  Whether you are visiting the area or looking for a church community to worship in, we assure you of a warm welcome as we come together to glorify God and share in fellowship as his children in this place.
