Due to the new variant of Covid 19 the parish church will be closed to face to face worship until the end of January.
We understand that this decision will be disappointing for many, as it is for us. But we think at this time it is the best way to show our Christian love for each other and the front line staff. We will review the decision towards the end of the month.
We will continue to stream, record and make the telephone services available to all. Dial 0330 088 19455 enter code 7977425 # then enter the '#' key when prompted to hear our latest service.
We also hope to distribute some daily prayer materials in the coming days. The Ministry team and PCC standing Committee are available on the phone to offer assistance, prayer and any help they can give.
To help us all stay in touch, I hope that we can distribute the public list of the Electoral Roll members and with your permission also to include contact details. You should receive a phone call in the coming days asking for your permission for your contact details to be used in this way.
I would also want to encourage you to pair up with another member of the congregation and agree to pray together each day, maybe at a fixed time. Do please pray for Marcus and I, as we meet to pray between 9am and 9:30am each day.
Typically we would all spend about 2 hours each week traveling to and attending worship at St. Mary’s. Can I ask that you might spend the same time in prayer, bible study, worship or staying in touch with other members of the congregation each week, to help keep our faith strong.
May God bless us all and keep us safe
