Coming to St Mary’s

We like to think we are open and welcoming, and hope that you will find this to be the case. If you arrive after the service has started, we don’t mind! Please sit anywhere – no seats are reserved. There is wheelchair access to the building and space inside for a chair.

Although there is variety in our services, most have the same basic shape. Anyone who is a confirmed member of a Christian denomination is invited to receive Holy (2)


If you are not confirmed, or do not wish to receive, please come to the altar for a blessing. Carry a book in your hand to signify that you wish to be blessed rather than receive.

After the service refreshments are served in the Church Room. You don’t have to stay, but we would enjoy getting to know you!

If you would like to get involved in leading the intercessions, please contact the Rector or telephone him on 01877 382887
