Adele's letter 11th April - Second Sunday of Easter

As we reflect on the success of a number of socially distanced events for Holy Week and Easter we are gradually moving towards using the building in a safe way.

Adele's Letter 4th April - Easter Sunday

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." [1Peter1:3]

Giving a vaccine

One way to express our thankfulness for vaccines received, and show love for our neighbours, is to donate towards vaccines for others around the world. The Church of England is supporting the VaccinAid campaign led by UNICEF UK. Find more information on the Church of England page.

Welcome to Holy Week at St Mary’s. Together we will be remembering the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection through online services, as well as in the church and woodland.

About Us

Giving to St Mary's

One way that we worship is to give money regularly to God's work at St Mary’s.

 

Your generous giving accounts for most of our income and makes everything we do at St Mary’s possible.

 

Giving to Others

 St Mary’s supports mission partners in the UK and overseas.

 

We believe that our first 10% (the tithe) is offered to God’s mission and so, as well as prayer, we support these partners with the tithe from our voluntary income.
