Worship Times

Please note that there will be different times and arrangements for services during July 

Tarves and Barthol Chapel Churches will hold Joint Services 
7 and 21 July at Barthol Chapel
14 and 28 July at Tarves
All services will be at the earlier time of 10.30 am 

Sunday  11.15 am  

Worship is held in Tarves Church at 11.15 am on a Sunday. This service is open to all and you can be sure of a friendly welcome, whether you are a member, or have never been to church before. Our formal communion services are held twice a year, on the first Sunday in May and the last Sunday in October. We also offer a shorter communion service after worship, usually on the last Sunday of the month.  

We have a printed order of service which allows people to follow what is happening and includes notices about things that are happening in the church. Hymn books are available at the door, including music editions and large print editions.


We recognise that young children cannot be expected to keep quiet and still throughout a whole service and a children’s corner is available with a library and toys. A Messy Church programme is offered for families and family services are held at Christmas, Easter, Harvest and Pentecost. In response to interest which has been expressed by families we are currently considering how best to increase the opportunities for family worship — watch this space!   


Thanks to the efforts of a number of willing volunteers, tea and coffee are served after the service except on Sundays where there is communion or Messy Church. This provides an opportunity to get to know others in the congregation.
