Sung Parish Eucharist
A beautiful, dignified act of worship, conducted according to the Common Worship liturgy, with a sung mass, candles and incense. Children are welcome throughout and there are toys and a small play area for littlies. Happy dogs on a lead are also welcome.
If you're new to church or just to St Mary's, enjoy the experience. You may sit where you like and either watch or join in with as much as appeals. The regular service is printed in the red booklets, with the weekly readings and notices on the white sheets, and the hymns in the green books. During communion, everyone may come forward to the altar but if you would prefer to remain in your seat, please do so. You may also come forward to receive a blessing from the priest instead of taking the sacraments of bread and wine. If you've any questions at any stage, it's always OK to ask! Send us an email in advance if you've any particular questions you would like sorted before attending. If you're coming by car we can also help with parking on a Sunday morning.
We're delighted if people stay behind (or drop-in) for tea and coffee afterwards. Again, if you're new to St Mary's, the coffee-slot after the service is a good time to get to know the church and meet our regulars. We're usually open until 2 pm for visiting on a Sunday and it's fine to take photographs.

There's also our knitting group at 10.30 am.
