There’s an example of that in the manual (info "(guix) Using the
Configuration System"):

     (remove (lambda (service)
               (eq? (service-kind service) avahi-service-type))

I suppose you could do the same for ntpd.

Now it’s a bit more verbose.  In the snippets you posted you used
‘delete’, but that’ll only work if the service you want to remove has
the default configuration (and assuming it can be usefully compared with
‘equal?’), so the more verbose ‘remove’ stanza is needed.

Now, just like we have ‘modify-services’, we could have
‘remove-services’ or similar, like this:

  (define (remove-services types services)
    (remove (lambda (service)
              (any (lambda (type)
                     (eq? (service-kind service) type))

and then you could write:

  ;; Remove NTP and Avahi.
  (remove-services (list avahi-service-type ntp-service-type)
