A Special Service with Bishop Olivia


Wednesday 20th July

St Mary’s has been chosen to host a short service on Wednesday 20th July, at which Bishop Olivia will deliver a brief sermon on the environment.

You are invited to attend and are asked to arrive at 10.15am for a prompt 10.30am start.

A film crew will be present from 9am until 3pm, filming before, during and after the service, with a focus on aspects of our Eco Church activities. This is for a series called Earthrise, which will be broadcast worldwide on Al Jazeera.

As the filming of the service could include shots of the congregation, you should only attend the service if you are happy that you might feature in the programme.

Confirmation at St Mary's

Whenever it happens, confirmation is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.

We will be holding a Confirmation Service on Sunday 9th October during the 9.45am service and invite all teenagers and adults that are interested to contact or for more information.

A Christmas Carol


Auditions in July

As part of our Advent and Christmas celebrations, we plan to present an adaptation of Charles Dickens', 'A Christmas Carol' to be performed at the end of November.

 We have an experienced director and an enthusiastic team and all we need are: Actors, Singers, Musicians and anyone keen to help design and build a simple set. We will also need assistance with costumes, lighting and sound. We know we have a great deal of talent in our parish and we need you to come forward.

We hope to have an initial presentation and play reading at the end of July with auditions and rehearsals to commence in September.

If you are keen to be involved, please contact .

Enthusiasm is more important than experience, so please join us for a wonderful start to the Christmas period.
