St Mary's Church, Marshalswick

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

Sunday 10 January 2021

Baptism of Christ   (also First Sunday of Epiphany)

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  Revd Canon Dr Ruth Goatly as President and preacher.   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.
