St Mary's is an Open Church - Open to God, Open to You
13 September 2020
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.
