Servers leading the Palm Sunday procession at Saint Mary's Church Woodbridge Suffolk

Thurifer, Crucifer & Acolytes lead the Palm Sunday Procession

We are a group of men, women, youngsters and children who assist at services. We make sure that everything is ready before the services, assist during them, and clear up afterwards.

For the Sunday Eucharist and other main services we work in teams, each team consisting of:-

For mid-week morning Communion Services there is just the MC

At present we have 22 Servers, but we are always looking for new members, especially Boat Boys and Girls. As younger servers grow, they move on to become Acolytes, Crucifer, etc. There is no age limit. As far as Boat Boys and Girls are concerned, they need to be able to concentrate for the duration of the service, and carry out their tasks sensibly and reverently. If you or your children are interested in becoming a server, please speak to the MC or any of the staff or contact the Parish Office.

Our aim is to enhance the drama of the liturgy, thereby focusing on the presence of God in the overall life of St Mary's. We consider it an honour and a privilege to serve God in His house.

We meet as and when required for services, and periodically for discussion and training. We also have regular social gatherings.
