Services are rotated around the three churches of Holy Trinity, Finstock, St James’, Ramsden and St Michael’s, Leafield. The general pattern for the first three Sundays in each month is to hold a BCP Holy Communion service at 9:00am and then a 10:30am Common Worship Holy Communion service followed by Evensong at either 4:00pm or 6:00pm. On the fourth Sunday of each month a single service of Holy Communion is held for the Benefice at 10:30am following Common Worship. At 6:00pm on the fourth Sunday there is usually a Healing Service of Taizé music and reflection is held at St James’ Ramsden (please check this website for further details). If there is a fifth Sunday in the month a single 10:30am Prayer Book Holy Communion service is held at St Peter’s in Wilcote.

Family Worship
Whilst we welcome all people at any of our service each week, the 10:30am service is particularly suitable for families. The 10:30am service on the first Sunday of each month is a combined 'all age' service in Leafield and incorporates words and music which children would particularly understand. The 10:30am service on the 2nd Sunday in Ramsden and 3rd Sunday in Finstock includes a separate activity for children, traditionally called a 'Sunday School'. This is a fun and exciting group for children that rejoins the main service during Holy Communion.

BCP Holy Communion
The Book of Common Prayer used in this service was published in 1662. The service therefore offers a traditional form of worship using the language of this period. When used at a 9:00am service hymns are generally not sung.

Common Worship Holy Communion
This is a modern service published by the Church of England less than ten years ago. Services at 10:30am always include music in the form of songs and hymns.
