St Mary's is an Open Church - Open to God, Open to You
St Mary's Parish Communion - The Parish Communion service will be held twice in church - at 9.00am and 10.30am. We will continue to film and upload (unedited) the 9.00am service. Please note that we have almost reached capacity for the 10.30am service but there are several seats available for the 9.00am service. Please contact a churchwarden if you wish to attend a Parish Communion Service (and are not already on our regular Sunday list)
Below 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 Easter season service booklet.
There are hymns (sung by the St Martin's Voices) to listen to at the start and end of the service as, sadly, we cannot yet sing out loud in church and our organist will also play during the service. If you are watching online and would like to join in singing the hymns at home, the words can be found here.
See this week's Pewsheet for the Collect and readings for the service, notices and the parish prayer list.

Church of England - from 9.00 am
The events surrounding Pentecost were clearly amazing and perplexing, after all seeing the Holy Spirit come in this way was an extraordinary experience. Seeing God at work, or sensing his presence in our lives can leave us wondering ‘what does all this mean?’.
Join us as we celebrate the Day of Pentecost, or Whit Sunday. Our worship is led by the Archbishop of York in York Minster, for this special service with Thy Kingdom Come.
