We are pleased to advise that Sunday Services have now resumed.  Everyone is welcome to join us in the church.  All the protocols to keep us safe can be found in the about us section.

The Church remains open for private prayer daily, every day from 9.30 until 4 pm.

On Sunday evenings at 6.30 (except for the first Sunday of the month), we will be meeting on Zoom for evening prayer, see calendar for details. Contact to find out how to join us!

How you can donate and help our Church

Sincere thanks for your support of St Mary’s during the Covid-19 pandemic. We have tried to keep a close control on spending during the last few weeks, but opening the church for visitors and preparing for an eventual green light to holding public services has meant spending on sanitizing products and signage. Your support is invaluable as we gradually open up again. Reverend Simon Talbott

This text is on display in our porch and it sums up well what we try to offer:-
If you are curious
and have come to see
If you are weary
and have come to rest
If you are grateful
and have come to give thanks
If you are hurting
and have come for comfort
If you are listening
and have come to pray
If you are seeking
and have come for answers
We welcome you in Christ’s name!
