Services from St Mary's Church

Returning to services

Whilst churches are open for people who wish to attend services our welcome is to worship either on-line or at church and each household makes their choice of what feels right for you. If you are in a vulnerable group or have lots of contact with other people, our encouragement is that you worship on-line.

We sincerely hope that we will be able to return to our pre-Covid-19 services and provisions for children and their families soon. Details of our "old-normal" services are listed below

Parish Eucharist

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.

Caritas

For those wanting more peace and quiet, Caritas, at 6pm, is a tranquil, reflective service of Holy Communion.

Both services last an hour.

Children's Services

Each school week there are either Sunday school sessions or services appropriate for children. Jumping for Joy is a fun session of songs, story, craft and prayers suitable for babies to children of about 7.  Emmaus is intended for the older children.  We run Emmaus and Jumping for Joy parallel to the 10am service in The Lancaster Hall. All of us begin the service together in the Church, have a time apart for age appropriate teaching and then join together for Holy Communion.
