Services on Zoom

Children’s and parents’ groups

Our pre-school parents are mainly supporting each other by Whatsapp at the moment – do contact us to be included. We are running a monthly outdoor under-5s Praise & Play session.

Youth groups

Hallelujah! Some of our groups for 9s to 11s and 11s to 16s are now starting to meet in in person. Your young people are very welcome


All of our homegroups are still meeting for friendship, prayer and study, via Zoom or in gardens on different days of the week. They are the lifeblood of our church and we would love to involve you.


St Mary’s members meet for loads of social things – from walking to craft, and you’re very warmly invited.
