We are an ANGLICAN CHURCH (Church of England)
that seeks to be...
CATHOLIC in the way we express our faith.
CHARISMATIC in seeking to be gifted by the Holy Spirit
CONTEMPORARY in our style of worship
COMMITTED to exploring God's word in the scriptures
CONCERNED to share the healing love of Christ with all.
Our main focus together as a Parish Family has been in the renewal of our worship. While remaining firmly in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, our worship has been greatly influenced by the Charismatic Renewal movement. Within liturgy and 'order' there is an openness to the Holy Spirit to enable the worshipper to draw close to God.
Our 'main' worship centres around the Parish Mass on Sundays at 10.00 a.m. While this service has a very contemporary feel about it, it is enhanced with incense, vestments and ceremonial, so that our worship is not only 'Charismatic' in style but also reaches back to the earlest forms of Christian worship.
Following the retirement of Fr Denis Bradshaw the parish is in interregnum and we are grateful to Fr Clay Knowles for providing pastoral and sacramental care.
The Ministry of Prayer for Healing and Wholeness is a ministry that we are growing in and we have expereinced the healing power and grace of the Holy Spirit at work among us in a very powerful way.
The Ministry of Healing is offered EVERY SUNDAY during the time of Holy Communion at the Parish Mass at 10.00 a.m.
The Ministry of Prayer for Healing and Wholeness is also available during the Tuesday Mass on request.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is also available by appointment with the Fr Clay Knowles.
Although St. Edward's is a 'small' church you can be assured of receiving a very BIG and warm WELCOME!
Come along on any Sunday morning at 10.00 a.m. You will be welcomed - but not smothered - and we just know you will want to return!
