St Mary's Church, Marshalswick

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

Sunday 3 January 2021

Feast of the Epiphany   (also Second Sunday of Christmas)

Sunday Parish Communion -  Because of the extremely high number of Coronavirus cases in our area and the increased risk of infection, St Mary's has 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 and deacon present. This service will be filmed and will be uploaded (unedited) afterwards so should be available online by 10.30am.

This is an unedited version of the 9.00 am service in church with the Richard Watson, Vicar of St Saviour's, as president and preacher.   The congregational words are not on the screen but  here is St Mary's service booklet.   

There are sung carols at the start and end of the service. If you wish to join in, the words can be found here.

APPEAL FOR HELP - St Mary's Church, along with many churches, charities, businesses and people, is struggling financially in this COVID-19 period. We still have nearly all our outgoings but have lost some of our sources of income; for example, we cannot hire out our hall or use it for our own fundraising events. We realise that this is a tough time for many, but if you could make a donation, it would be very much appreciated.   Just click here to go to our giving page. 

  St Albans Cathedral - from 10.00 am

 Church of England - from 9.00am

"This child of Mary is God's only son, both human and divine. He's also the king of kings." - Bishop Hosam Naoum Our service for Epiphany comes from the UK and the Middle East, in partnership with Embrace the Middle East. Hear Father Boulos Khano, St Mark's Syriac Monastery in Jerusalem, chant the Gospel and the Lord's Prayer in Aramaic, the language of Jesus, as we celebrate the revelation of the incarnation in Jesus Christ.
