Can you help St Mary's Parish Church? We are here to serve our community and to work hard for the benefit of all in our area. Coming out of lockdown we seek your help. Like all charities we need the support of the people we serve and ask that you may consider making a donation to the church? It can be done in many ways (see our 'Donate Page') or you can simply scan the adjacent QR code with your smart phone (you'll need to download a QR reader app... there are many available and free). The instructions for payment are easy to follow, and you'll get a receipt of your transaction. If eligible, you can even gift aid the amount! Thank you for your continued support.
We are taking bookings for Sunday 9th August (Holy Communion) from Monday 3rd August. See below for details of how to book.
The schools break up this week we wish everyone a good, relaxing and fun time. In previous years we've had a Eucharist at the Parochial... which is not possible this year. However Barry has sent a message to the Leavers. Click on the link below.
