St Mary's Church, Marshalswick

St Mary's is an Open Church - Open to God, Open to You

Sunday 21 March    Fifth Sunday of Lent


St Mary's Parish Communion -  Because of the extremely high number of Coronavirus cases in our area and the increased risk of infection, St Mary's had decided to suspend public worship for the time being in order to keep everyone safe. There will be a 9.00am Service in St Mary's on Sundays, but with only priest, preacher and deacon present. This service will be filmed and will be uploaded (unedited) afterwards so should be available online by 10.30am.

However, we are re-starting public worship on Palm Sunday, 28 March. The Parish Communion service will be held twice - at 9.00am and 10.30am.  We will continue to film and upload (unedited) the 9.00am service.

This is an unedited version of the 9.00 am service in church with the Revd Canon Dr Ruth Goatly as president and preacher and Paul Wiggins, our Reader, as deacon.  The congregational words are not on the screen but  here is St Mary's service booklet.    

There are sung hymns at the start and end of the service and during the Preparation of the Table/Communion. If you wish to join in, the words can be found here.
