St Mary's is an Open Church - Open to God, Open to You
We have had to change our original plans as a result of the new lockdown from 5 November to 2 December and in light of the revised Covid-19 Regulations.
Public worship is not permitted from Thursday 5 November for at least four weeks although ministers and others involved in the service may be in church.
We have also decided not to open the church for private prayer for the time being.
Sunday 29 November 2020 Parish Communion Service will be online by 10.30 am on Sunday
This Sunday's service will be led by the Revd Canon Dr Ruth Goatly as President with Paul Wiggins, our Reader, as Preacher.
This years we have a series of five talks (Ruth - Christ the King and launch the course) plus the individual topics of Advent weeks - Patriarchs (Paul Wiggins), Prophets (Richard Watson), John the Baptist (Ruth Goatly) and Mary (Bp Michael).
CHURCHES TOGETHER IN MARSHALSWICK (CTM) - ADVENT CAROL SERVICE 6.00pm
Sadly, lockdown means that people from the six member churches of CTM cannot physically meet up for this annual service hosted by St Saviour's. Instead it will be online from 6.00 pm on Advent Sunday. Thank you to St Saviour's for putting the service together, to CTM churches whose members did readings and to St Saviour's Virtual Choir for their hard work!

The format of the service varies. We will have a regular weekly pattern in future but this week:

Compline led by Paul Wiggins
Sunday 6 December 2020 Second Sunday of Advent
Public worship is allowed from 2 December so we will hold the Parish Communion Service twice at 9.00 am and 10.30am. Fr Richard Watson from St Saviour's will preside and preach (Prophets - the third sermon of our Advent series).
We request that members of the congregation come to the same service as they did before. If anyone else would like to attend, we would be grateful if you would contact the wardens in advance as it helps us organise the seating.
