Services at St Mary's Church, Putney High Street, London, SW15 1SN
Services this Sunday, 27th August 2023
Join us for a moment of calm amidst the busyness of a bank holiday weekend. At All Saints we will hear from Rev’d James Marston, Associate Priest at St Michael & All Angels church in Barnes, while Rev’d Canon Richard Truss will be back to lead Caritas at St Mary’s. In the morning at St Mary’s our own Richard Holman, reader, PCC treasurer and long-standing member of our church will lead a service of Praise and Worship. The day’s readings are Romans 12.1-8 and Matthew 16.13-20)
We have had a lot of visiting clergy on recent Sundays, but Rev’d Jane would like to assure you that she is still here to serve you and will be pleased to hear from anyone in need of a priest.
This Sunday morning Richard Holman will be leading us in Morning Worship. We don’t often have a Sunday service that isn’t a Eucharist and this is an opportunity to let the newness of the liturgy prompt you to hear the Word afresh. Expect singing, prayer and scripture.
Richard, who will also be preaching, needs little introduction and is known to many of you as a faithful member of our church, as a Lay minister, and as the person who always remembers your name.
Our Sunday services come in two flavours: at 10am there is the Parish Eucharist during which, in term-time, Sunday School groups run for children from nursery school age to year 9.
There is – throughout the year – a creche for smaller children and the Cromwell Room, separated from the main church by a glass wall, is set apart for babies and toddlers to play as their adults sit with them and take part in the service. We hope that the Parish Eucharist is an un-fussy but reverential communion service using traditional hymns and thought-provoking sermons to enable people to re-charge their batteries for the coming week.
We have a fantastic Sunday School team and all ages welcome at St Mary’s! For the details of our provisions for children please check the heading “What is there for?” and click on the drop down option “Children.”
