Much Wenlock Parish Church
Much Wenlock Altar Servers
Altar servers assist the priest at the altar during the Eucharist; it’s a real privilege to serve our Lord in this way.
What do they do?
Servers work as part of a serving team. Team work is an important part of serving at the altar and servers have different roles within the team.
Some of the roles are:
Acolyte - Acolytes carry the candle-torches. They work in pairs and escort the crucifer.
Crucifer - The Crucifer carries the big cross and leads processions in church.
On special occasions we use incense - one of the servers will be responsible for the thurible. This server is called the thurifer.
We are really keen to built up a team of young servers to assist at our 11am services - Being a server doesn't mean you have to come every Sunday!!
The team welcomes trainee servers from the age of seven upwards.
