Guild of Servers

The Guild of Servers normally comprises a group of about 8 people.

Our function is to provide the Celebrant at Holy Communion and Parish Communion with assistance, in preparation and in clearing away. We also provide a crucifer for processions, candle bearers for special services at Christmas and Easter and general assistance in ensuring that our worship at Saint John's is not marred by hitches or errors.

At Parish Communion two servers are used and at Holy Communion and other services - just one.

We wear a black cassock before and after the service and during the service a white surplice is worn also.

Currently the Guild is short of members and would like 3 or 4 more, especially for Sunday's 9.30 service, so that a Server is not normally called more than once a month. If anyone is interested in joining they should contact us through the Parish Office.
