News, Updates & Magazine

On this page we will keep you informed of significant news, updates, developments and changes at St Mary’s as we adapt to the present situation. We expect to produce information and resources to share, new ideas and possibilities and above all to keep active in mission and visible in community for Jesus and God's Kingdom.


The MU enjoyed hosting the service for Bs Joshua & Mama Phoebe from the Diocese of Maseno West, Kenya who are in England for the Lambeth Conference. We were joined by MU Branches from Lanchester, Gateshead & Gateshead West. It was lovely to meet the Bishop and his wife; their presence with us means the Lambeth Conference will be all the more significant for us. The service was followed with a typically ‘British Tea’ in the gardens and centre... and the congregation gave £180 toward

the Mothers Union Oversea Fund. Well done to all involved.

Messy Church members decided that Eileen needed her very own parking space on the Rectory Drive!
