Keeping our Patronal Festival 

Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

 This is also the 14th Sunday after Trinity but we are celebrating it as our Patronal Festival.  Traditionally, 8 September is deemed to be Mary's birthday.  St Mary's was first consecrated as a centre of worship on 12 September 1943.

GOOD NEWS !   St Mary's re-started public worship on 2 August.

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.
