As we pass the two-year mark since the initial Covid lockdown, St Mary’s church continues to return to earlier patterns of worship and celebrating our life together. We also know that Covid is still with us and we continue to encourage sanitising, masks and social distancing to protect those who are most vulnerable.
From Easter 2022 we will restore various parts of our worship and community life;
We will continue to keep all this under review in the coming months and will move gradually and cautiously in relaxing our worship and activities further.
Every blessing for Easter and the year ahead.
Fr Steve, Churchwardens and St Mary’s Church Council

Children and young people are valued and nurtured at St Mary’s and are encouraged to take an active part in the life of the church. We believe they are the Church of Today, not simply the Church of tomorrow.
At our 10.00am Sunday mass we hold Children’s Church (4-11) and Youth Church (11-16), and for younger children we have a play corner with toys and a soft floor.
On the first Sunday of the month we often have baptisms and an all age service with a different feel of music and preaching.
Our children and young people help read, lead prayers, serve, welcome people and our part of our life together.
We believe in spending time together and exploring our faith together. We run courses throughout the year - Advent, Lent, Quiet Days, Alpha, as well as Confirmation groups and First Communion.
Upcoming courses will be added over the next months.
