Sunday Service

May Street Presbyterian Church’s Sunday morning service is traditional in nature with a selection of hymns, psalms, scripture readings, prayer and a sermon. The service runs from 11am to 12 midday and is popular not just with members but with tourists staying in city centre hotels.

At present the May Street pulpit is “vacant” but we have a vacancy convenor, the Rev Wilfred Orr, senior minister of St John’s Newtownbreda.


The Rev John Gilkinson conducts the Thursday lunchtime service, which runs from 1.05pm to 1.30pm. The usual format includes prayer, a scripture reading, two items of praise and a short address. This service is popular with people who work, shop or socialise in the city centre.
