About our worship and services


The worship at St. Ives Parish Church is in the Anglo Catholic Tradition.  This means our main Sunday services are full of colour, incense, deep spiritual symbols and splendid choral music to lift us all into heavenly places.

During the week, our services are simple, highly personal and are held in the beautiful Lady Chapel.

Christian Meditation

The Christian meditation group provides worshipers with 45 minutes of support and practice in the art of silent meditative prayer according to the World Community for Christian Meditation.  We meet every Monday in the Lady Chapel (side door entrance off St. Andrews Street) for a 7:30pm start. We prepare for meditation with a short reading and relaxing music. We then spend about 25 minutes in meditation silently repeating a mantra, before ending at 8:00pm with a short prayer. After some time for reflection and discussion, we usually finish at about 8:15. Our small group welcomes visitors all the year around so please come and join us.
