We were pleased to recommence Sunday services on 9th August 2020, after the closure of all churches on 23rd March earlier this year.

Currently all services are lay-led, having a Morning Prayer format, which may be taken from the Book of Common Prayer or sometimes have a Celtic Iona style.

A Communion service generally takes place somewhere within our Benefice once a week.

Services will be held on the first and third Sundays in the month from

6th September, at 9.30am. All are welcome.

Check the church notice board for up to date details.

Coming to church for a service:

We need to remind you of some new ways of doing things at this extraordinary time.

As you might expect hand sanitiser will be provided at the back of church.

Generally, a printed order of service will be available on the table as you enter the church. Please return them there after the service.

Please leave any offering you may have with you on the plate, on the table, as you enter the Church.

Any visitors will be warmly welcomed and be asked politely to leave their contact details.

Everyone is encouraged to remember to keep 2 metres apart, so please sit with a row between you and the next person.

For the time being, music and hymns will be broadcast through a sound system for us to listen to.

Please take the opportunity to catch up with friends and neighbours outside the Church after the service.

When you have left the church, it will be locked but be available for private prayer after 72 hours. This is a procedure recommended to avoid “deep cleaning” after each service.

We look forward to you joining us for worship at St Mary’s!

With Christian greetings, on behalf of the Church Wardens.
