Upcoming highlights

Can we pray for you at Easter?

If you have a request, please write it on a piece of paper (either anonymously or with your name) and pop it into the prayer request box at the back of St Mary’s Church. We’ll then include you in our prayers over the Easter weekend.

Lent course, now underway

This year, we are pleased to offer a Lent course at St Mary’s. This is being held on the first five Tuesdays of Lent beginning on 8 March. The sessions begin with an optional meal at 7:30pm (8:15pm if you aren’t able to join for the meal) and are focusing on identifying your passions and skills and how these can be used in your daily life to serve God.

We’re now underway: catch up on session details and recordings here

If you have any questions, please email Becky Leeves.
