Services in Church and Online

Until further notice, due to the increase in Coronavirus in this area, we regret that St Mary’s will not be open for private prayer or services. However, a selection of online services will continue to be on offer at St Mary's and around the team.

This page mainly provides greater detail about services in the coming week.  For information about future services please visit our Calendar page.

We aim to provide an online service at 10am in St Mary’s each Sunday except for the first Sunday of the month when there will be a 8am traditional BCP service instead.  A selection of online services are also on offer around the team. Please see  our Church at Home web page for other ways to worship during this time.

Online Giving.

Give a Little logoWe are very grateful to those who have continued to support our church’s running costs during the pandemic with their standing orders. However, we are aware that others who would normally contribute to the collections made during services have been unable to do so.  You can now use your credit or debit card to donate money directly to our church using our secure online giving provider ”Give a Little” by clicking on this link. And you can even gift aid it. Any contributions will be most appreciated. Thank you.
